Cubs still tinkering in bullpen
Chicago has two legit late-inning arms in Hector Rondon and Pedro Strop but is looking for a few solid middle relievers. A trio of former closers are involved and could fill the role. Contender bullpen overviews

The Cubs make a good little pickup in Austin Jackson, who has hit .314 since the All-Star break. He not only provides center field depth behind Dexter Fowler but could emerge as the starting right fielder with Jorge Soler now on the DL with an oblique strain. Considering Soler's .148 average against offspeed pitches, I'd give Jackson the shot in right, even though he's never played there in the majors.
How does Austin Jackson fit in with the Chicago Cubs? Trading for Jackson allows the Cubs the ability to mix or match their lineups.
Reds take lead over Cubs in 5th
After a Joey Votto intentional walk found the Reds with the bases loaded, Brandon Phillips hit a 2-run single to put the Reds up 3-1 over the Cubs in the fifth. Follow live
