Cubs' Alec Mills: Could serve as sixth starterMay 23, 2020 | 08:22 AM
Mills could work as the Cubs' sixth starter when the regular season is able to begin, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports. Before play was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, it looked like Tyler Chatwood would get the fifth spot in the rotation, with Mills serving as a long reliever. However, a shortened season with expanded rosters is now the likely route for MLB, and that could mean teams like the Cubs turn to six-man rotations, at least until their top five pitchers stretch out their arms more. Mills started four times for Chicago in 2019 and would make sense as a sixth starter if the team goes that direction.
