Baker is another player who must wait for Tanaka, as Chicago will likely be a player for him. Even if the Cubs win that potential sweepstakes, though, they will remain the frontrunner for Baker -- especially if they trade Samardzija -- as the team got just three starts for the $5.5 million it invested in him last winter (it took Baker most of the year to return from Tommy John surgery) and might be able to sign him for even less this time around.
