Former Chicago Cubs Closer Hector Rondon is Retiring

It wasn’t that long ago that Hector Rondon was a staple in the Chicago Cubs bullpen, from quality setup man to exceptional closer to World Series champion. His two years from 2014 to 2015, in particular, came with an ERA just barely over two, and he was one of the clear best relievers in baseball.
