NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. - The Cubs emptied out the piggy bank last winter, but this time around they won't be doing nearly as much Christmas shopping.

"Last offseason was the offseason we spent a lot of money, We were really aggressive financially, really aggressive to do two offseasons of building in one offseason. This offseason, I don't expect that same level of activity," noted Cubs GM Jed Hoyer. "We'll listen. We'll think about it. But fans certainly shouldn't expect it. I don't think we're the Chicago team that's going to be making headlines."

The one area Hoyer did leave a little wiggle room for tweaking is the pitching staff.

Many believe Aroldis Chapman will not be back on north side next year, leaving the door open for in-house promotions or free agent signings.

The Dodgers' Kenley Jansen and the Royals' Wade Davis are rumored to be on the Cubs' radar as potential closers.
