2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Think the Cubs' PTBNL could be Yohander Mendez, Matt West, or Will Lamb?
(Jake from Libertyville)
I don't think the Rangers would part with Mendez. The other arms could be in play, although I wouldn't give up on West after they spent the last year fixing his arm and rehabbing him. (Jason Parks)
