Cubs could use a quality fourth or fifth outfielder

Nick Martini:

If there is indeed room for a fifth outfielder on the roster, one of the top candidates is this guy. Martini, 30, made his MLB debut in 2018 with the Oakland A’s. Between the A’s and Padres (2018-2019) he has hit .269/.372/.380 in 87 games. Martini plays primarily left field and could be a welcome depth piece as an outfielder and pinch hitter.

Ian Miller:

He was a member of the Cubs organization last year and had a very impressive spring, hitting .371/.450/.457 in 20 games. His most notable asset is his speed. While he has only played in 13 career MLB games between the Cubs and Twins, he is another organization depth piece that could have a place at some point. Doubtful it is the opening day roster unless there is an injury.
