Industry source thinks Cubs will trade for Britton. “If you have a chance to add Britton to your club, you do it. Theo has the minor-lgrs."

Jesse Rogers at bleachernation.com stated “Not to get too hyped that this is something that will actually happen, but I do think – particullary given that the Orioles are probably serious about trading Britton right now if they can get good return – this bears watching.” Rogers basically states that this is something that could happen, but don’t be suprised if it does not.
If this does end up happening what do the Cubs do? Currently they Have Candelario and De La Cruz that could be an interest for the Orioles (IMO).
Britton has a 1.93 ERA on the year out of the bullpen with a WHIP of 1.71.
