Mancini to Cubs, per reports

The Chicago Cubs and free agent Trey Mancini are in agreement on a two year deal, per reports. The deal is two years, $14 million, with an opt out after 2023 if he has 350 plate appearances in 2023, and another $7 million in possible incentives.

Mancini was one of the remaining bats I thought the Rangers would have interest in, though he’s more of a 1B/DH than a LF, and would seem to be better suited to a part-time role than an everyday gig. Mancini has put up a 735 OPS and 104 OPS+ the past two seasons, and especially struggled after he was traded to Houston last summer.
