There is a strong likelihood the Chicago Cubs trade SP Jeff Samardzija before Opening Day, according to two sources. 

Although the Cubs are listening to offers for their ace, the price would have to be right in order to move him before Opening Day. The club would have more leverage if they waited until the trade deadline in July, so that is more likely to happen than a trade before Opening Day. No matter where he pitches in 2014, Samardzija has the high-strikeout ability to make him an above average fantasy pitcher this season.
