Here’s what Cubs President of Baseball Operations, Theo Epstein, had to say:
“We are excited to welcome Manny to the Cubs organization and look forward to him working with our young hitters,” Epstein said.
“While Manny is not and will not be a fit on the Cubs major league roster, we do think at this stage of his life he’s a nice fit as a mentor for some of the young talented hitters we have in the organization. Manny will coach full-time and play part-time in a limited role that does not take at-bats away from our prospects.”
Ramirez, 41, is a lifetime .312 hitter with 555 home runs in 2,302 games covering 19 major league seasons.
