Losing four high-leverage bullpen arms at this point in the season hurts, because the Cubs have just two months to figure out how to deploy the newer faces and give themselves the best chance to win now.

But with that comes plenty of chances and likely some longer leashes for young pitchers to prove their worth in the big leagues. As difficult as losing in the short-term will be, the long-term effects of getting those players experience will only benefit the organization as a whole moving forward.
