Kimbrel is signed for $11 million in 2016 and $13 million in 2017, with a $13 million club option in 2018.

Report: A potential Cubs — San Diego Padres trade still in the works

Stalin Castro in San Diego? That sounds like another disappointment for Padres fans.

According to ESPN writer Jim Bowden, the Cubs still have interest in Padres No. 2 pitcher Tyson Ross and closer Craig Kimbrel. Ross is 6-8 with a 3.45 ERA and 132 strikeouts, while Kimbrel has 29 saves with a 2.73 ERA this season.

Bowden said Chicago would give up a lot for the two pitchers. The Cubs would have to offer shortstop Starlin Castro, minor league pitchers C.J. Edwards and Pierce Johnson, and minor league outfielder Billy McKinney.
