Rizzo named to Forbes' 30 under 30

At age 28, Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo lands a spot on Forbes' coveted 30 under 30 list. Rizzo is a three-time All-Star as well as a Gold Glove and Silver Slugger winner. Also from MLB, Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve makes the cut.

Contrary to a report, the Cubs won't be paying the luxury tax this season. It has an effect on the compensation given to teams for losing/signing free agents who were given qualifying offers. If the Cubs sign one they will lose their second highest pick in the draft. If another team signs Jake Arrieta and/or Wade Davis, the Cubs will be given a compensatory pick after the second round.

Unlike last year at this time, when most in baseball felt the Cubs were moving on from Aroldis Chapman, that may not be true with closer Wade Davis. The demand at his position is expected to be lighter this winter, which could help the Cubs. Theo Epstein spoke about Davis on Monday: "He knows we don't typically...give long, multi year deals to relievers but it's definitely worth talking."

Cubs GM Jed Hoyer confirms Brandon Hyde will be the bench coach for the Cubs replacing Davey Martinez who left to be the manager of the Nationals. Hyde was previously the first base coach but did a lot of bench coach duties, including organizing and running much of the spring. He also was responsible for relaying the daily lineup to the players. The Cubs have not announced his replacement at first base.
