Cubs finalize contract with outfielder Jake Marisnick

MESA, Ariz. – The inability to hit consistently has cost the Cubs another shot at 2016 glory the last three campaigns.

The offense famously “broke” at the end of 2018 when the season ended in a Wild Card loss. It did so again when the team missed the playoffs completely the next season. While the shortened 2020 season saw moments, the Cubs scored only a run in two Wild Card Series games at Wrigley Field against Miami.
