Allow Joc Pederson to introduce himself.
Pederson, the new Cubs left fielder who was one of the club's most significant offseason additions, made an early spring training splash in Wednesday's game against the Mariners.
In the first inning, Pederson, hitting cleanup, hit the Cubs' first home run of spring training, a towering two-run blast into right-center field.
Pederson's at-bat was set up by a one-out double by Willson Contreras.
Pederson has plenty of pop in his bat — he hit a career-high 36 home runs in 2019. Although it's only spring training, Wednesday may be a sign of things to come for the 28-year-old in his first season donning the blue pinstripes.
