With the big trades made, our attention now turns to who can make a name for themselves and perhaps cement a role with the Cubs going into 2022 and beyond. One person doing just that is Rafael Ortega. Ortega already homered earlier in Sunday’s game for his second in as many days, but he added his second of the day for good measure. That wRC+ now up to 136!
