John Mallee is the new hitting coach for the Chicago Cubs.

Mallee (pronounced MAY-lee) comes to his hometown after a stint as hitting coach for the Houston Astros — Houston's Jose Altuve won the American League batting crown in 2014 — and the Florida (now Miami) Marlins, where he worked with Miguel Cabrera and Mike (Giancarlo) Stanton. He also worked with the Toronto Blue Jays.
