The Chicago Cubs are hoping to upgrade their center field depth and bring in someone who can hit leadoff before the start of spring training.

One of the options that GM Theo Epstein is considering to fill both spots is former Yankees bust Jacoby Ellsbury, who was released in November after spending the last two seasons on the injured list.

It’s unknown if Ellsbury is back to full health, but he’s reportedly hoping to play in 2020 and the Cubs are interested, MLB Network insider Jon Heyman reported Friday.

The Chicago Tribune confirmed the interest with news that Cubs manager David Ross loved what Ellsbury brought to a ballclub when they were teammates on the Red Sox’s 2013 World Series championship team.
