Cubs | Expecting production from Jake Arrieta, Mike Olt

The Chicago Cubs are expecting to get plenty of production from SP Jake Arrieta and 3B Mike Olt after trading for them last year. Manager Rick Renteria said the initial plan at third base is to have 3Bs Luis Valbuena and Donnie Murphy compete for playing time, but the Cubs are hoping to see Olt bounce back from a rough year with the Texas Rangers in 2013. Arrieta said he benefitted from working with pitching coach Chris Bosio for the final seven weeks of the season. The team didn't notice any vision problems from Olt when he was hitting off a tee during the team's developmental program last week.
