Occasionally as a GM, you’ll find a ‘diamond in the rough.’ This has been the case for three specific pitchers. Jake Arrieta, Jason Hammel and Pedro Strop. Fortunately, the Chicago Cubs organization was able to turn around these pitchers into success stories.
These additions were crucial parts in the 2016 World Series run, and now the Chicago Cubs are hoping to replicate the same success with the recent signing of Brad Brach for the 2019 season. If any baseball fans have seen this trend, there should be a lot of excitement about this addition.
