Now Playing: Cubscast Mesa, Meet the New Guys
Every team comes into Spring Training riding a wave of optimism, and a lot of that positive energy comes from adding new pieces to the clubhouse mix.
Baseball president Theo Epstein and General Manager Jed Hoyer spent the offseason strengthening the bullpen, adding depth to the rotation and finding good complementary pieces for the order. Vine Line got a chance to talk with some of the new blood, including starting pitcher Jason Hammel, catcher George Kottaras, outfielder Justin Ruggiano and new closer Jose Veras about what it means to them to be a Cub.
We’ll be posting videos and stories from Cubs Park throughout the spring, so watch the blog and our Twitter account, @cubsvineline.
