Almora, Jay take their friendship to center for the Cubs

MESA, Ariz. (AP) Jon Jay and Albert Almora Jr. are Miami guys, born and raised. Jay played his college ball for Miami, and Almora committed to the Hurricanes before he signed with the Chicago Cubs out of high school.

Magic City, right in the middle of Wrigley Field.

The Cubs are hoping Jay and Almora can fill their hole in center field after Dexter Fowler became a free agent and signed with rival St. Louis. Jason Heyward also could slide over from right, but the No. 1 option for the defending World Series champions is a Miami duo who struck up a friendship during offseason training sessions.
