The Chicago Cubs are interested in signing free agent Trey Mancini. The team has come out hot in free agency. They’ve signed Cody Bellinger and Jameson Taillon so far.

They are prioritizing catchers and other starting pitchers. Chicago is reportedly waiting for the shortstop market to shake out. They can’t wait too long, or there may not be any free-agent shortstops left.

Trey Mancini is a fan-favorite amongst many fans across the league. In 2020, he announced that he was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer and would miss the season. He went on to beat cancer and return for the Opening Day of the 2021 season.

Mancini was traded to Houston last season at the deadline. Mancini had a slash line of .176/.258/.364 with eight home runs in the 51 games he played for the Astros. He’s a career .265 hitter; it’s safe to say he was in a slump in Houston.

“Trey Mancini would be dope. I have a sweet relic card of his as an Oriole not that it matters, but I would love to see him play for the Cubs,” one fan explained.

“If Jed Hoyer screws this up…” another fan said.

@MLBBruceLevine Mancini would be a nice bat to add. Still need something a little more.

Trey would be great for the #Cubs until Mervis is comfortable or maybe Trey breaks out! He is a great player and a great addition to any Clubhouse. I would love to see him in Cubby Blue! twitter.com/mlbtraderumors…

Fans think he’d be a great fit in the clubhouse. While he slumped for the Astros last season, fans are sure he’ll be able to find his swing again. He’s only hit under 20 home runs once in his career, and that was last season.

While fans are predominantly focused on the shortstop market, Mancini would be a great signing. Even if he’s not somebody they use every day, they could platoon him with Matt Mervis at first base and DH.

It was a tough pill to swallow for Cubs fans to watch their three-time All-Star catcher Wilson Contreras sign with the St. Louis Cardinals. He was a huge contributor to the team, and it must have pained fans to see him sign with their division rival.

The Chicago Cubs have to fill the hole they now have at catcher. They could fill that hole with players they already have, like P.J. Higgins and Yan Gomes, but neither would bring the offensive capabilities that Contreras had.

The Chicago Cubs are one team to watch this offseason. They could soon be involved in some interesting signings.
