The Chicago Cubs have made several moves trying to solidify their bullpen for the upcoming 2018 season.

Cubs standout pitcher Kyle Hendricks was on 670 The Score recently and was very high on the moves that Theo Epstein and management have done so far this offseason.

“I am really excited about the moves so far,” Hendricks said. “The signings have been huge. I have heard Morrow is a great guy. I have not heard much about (Cichek) yet. Morrow is a power guy, and I heard he is very low key and will probably fit well in our clubhouse. (Chatwood) and I grew up in the same area in Southern California. We played summer ball as seniors together. I know from experience, he is a great guy and just a baseball guy. That is what our whole team is about. As long as we keep getting guys like this, they will fit right in the clubhouse and fit in right with the culture. That will help them relax, so we can get the best out of them.”

It appears that the Cubs not only got some talented pitchers, they got some guys that will fit into the team's culture next season.

However, the Cubs aren't finished re-tooling their pitching as they have been linked with free agent pitchers Alex Cobb and Yu Darvish as of late.
