Everyone loves a good comeback story.

The Chicago Cubs have a familiar face in Spring Training with reliever Brandon Morrow early in Mesa, Arizona.

Morrow has thrown several bullpens already this spring and hopes to make a coveted roster spot for the Cubs if he can stay healthy and rekindle his past success.

"So far so good," Morrow told reporters on Monday morning. "I'm not going to declare I'm back yet, but I've been off the mound a few times, so far so good. Cautiously optimistic."

Morrow is happy to try to make his comeback with the Cubs and wouldn't want to try it with any other organization.

"Comfort level with the organization," Morrow said about the reasons he is sticking with the Cubs. "This is where I want to be. I signed here as a free agent and part of the Chicago Cubs. Unfortunately, I only got to do that for half of a season. We love it in Chicago. Mutual interest, honestly, I didn't have any major league opportunities, I had some other minor league interest. It was an easy decision."
