Mancini ended his seventh major season last year. He spent a season with both the Baltimore Orioles and the Houston Astros, the last of which he was traded in August.

He won the World Series with the Astros, helping them defeat the Philadelphia Phillies for his first career ring. He decided to sign with the Cubs on a free agency basis as part of an overhaul of their off-season roster.

Based on last year’s table, Mancini may have had one of his worst seasons. He hit under .240 and hit the fewest home runs in a season since 2016.

However, he has a career cut of .265/.330/.457 off the plate and has averaged 24.4 home runs per season since 2017 if you miss the 2020 season. In 2020, Mancini was diagnosed with colon cancer and did not play for a shortened season.

Following the 2021 season, he was named Returning Player of the Year after hitting 21 home runs and 71 RBIs. He hit .255/.326/.432 that season.

Mancini is likely to become a forward for the Cubs. During his career, he played most of the games in the outfield, then played at first base, and then was named hitter. There is a chance that at some point he will be able to see all three positions in the Cubs.
