Over the last week, the Cubs made a slew of moves to shuffle around both their active and 40-man rosters.

Adbert Alzolay (activated from 60-day injured list), Jared Young (selected from Triple-A Iowa) and Esteban Quiroz (selected from Iowa) are now on the big league club, while moves involving Frank Schwindel (DFA'd and granted unconditional release), Sean Newcomb (DFA'd and sent outright to Iowa) and Rafael Ortega (placed on 60-day IL) opened up spots on both rosters.

With so little time left in the year, those moves have added another wrinkle to the decision-making the Cubs' front office will be doing this offseason — and more specifically, the decisions they'll make surrounding who to keep on the 40-man roster before the Rule 5 Draft.

Happy Monday, folks!

We're now going into the first full week since the trade deadline, and I don't know that we have any clearer picture of where the Cubs go from here. A couple players who were expected to be traded weren't, and there was at least one deal that caught everyone off guard.

Compared to 2021, this year's deadline wasn't what everyone was expecting, but now that six days have passed, there's been more than enough time for everyone to sit back and really evaluate how it all went down. And with just two months remaining in the season, the focus shifts to how the the rest of the year goes for the Cubs, in both the major and minor league levels.
