Former Chicago Cubs closer Hector Rondon is on board with his team acquiring lefty flamethrower Aroldis Chapman from the New York Yankees and is willing to pitch in the seventh or eighth inning or "whenever" manager Joe Maddon wants him.

"I think it's good for our team," Rondon said before Monday's Cubs/White Sox game. "He's one of the best relievers we have right now. I'm good with that. I know I did a really good job in my role.

"You have a chance to get that guy, better take it."
