Giroux just undressed you. Figuratively. He undressed your momma last night. Literally.
Regardless, we're going to see some roster activity between now and Tuesday. As we'll have the second pick in the Rule 5 Draft, too, we'll also have an idea as to who should be available around the league for when the Cubs are on the clock.

So many of those players can just go away already. I Hope there's a trade before Tuesday.
I'm not quite sure what time the deadline is today for the 40-man to be set, but a few teams are starting to announce roster moves. At the latest we're looking at before 12:00am ET. Maybe as early as 5:00pm ET.
Last year it was 5 p.m. EST. Can't find it for sure for this year.
Washington Post says midnight Eastern, CSN Northeast says 5 p.m. Eastern.
EDIT: Same as before, but written more clearly by Carrie Muskat:
(h/t gocubs2118)#Cubs acquire RHP Barret Loux and a player to be named from #Rangers for RHP Jake Brigham
#Cubs select contracts of 4 to add to 40-man roster: RHP Trey McNutt, IF Christian Villanueva, IF Logan Watkins & RHP Robert Whitenack
Bryan LaHair designated for assignment. #Cubs say they are pursuing opportunity for him in Japan.
Also, RHP Carlos Gutierrez cleared waivers & assigned to Minor Leagues. #Cubs

Loux sure is an fun get. If only he can stay healthy.
Good for LaHair if he gets a pay raise over there, but I was expecting him to get traded in a package to an American League team.
Where is everyone that told me the Cubs wouldn't let LaHair go to Japan?
