(670 The Score) The Cubs on Thursday revealed their 40-man player pool for the postseason, and it included top pitching prospect Brailyn Marquez, who has been working at the team’s alternate camp in South Bend.

The Cubs’ pool was comprised of 21 pitchers, nine infielders, six outfielders and four catchers. The Cubs will have to choose 28 of those players for the best-of-three wild-card round series, which begins next week.
