The Cubs announced two key additions to new manager Rick Renteria’s staff, bringing in Bill Mueller as hitting coach and Brandon Hyde as bench coach.
Mueller played 11 seasons in the majors, including 2001 and 2002 with the Cubs, winning a batting title and finishing as a career .292 hitter with a .797 OPS. Most recently he worked as a scout for the Dodgers.
Hyde previously coached in the Marlins’ farm system and spent a year as their bench coach in 2011, but most recently worked in the Cubs’ front office as director of player development.
