Former Cubs reliever Pedro Strop is apparently onto his second career — as a recording artist

2 years agoTony Andracki

During his 8 years in Chicago, Pedro Strop was one of the most popular players on the Cubs — with the fans and inside the clubhouse.

The right-handed pitcher was a major part of the bullpen in 2013-19 and returned to the team for a short stint in 2021.

Now, his playing career appears to be over but the 37-year-old is keeping busy.

For his next chapter, he’s trying his hand as a recording artist.

On Saturday afternoon while the Cubs were hosting the Mets for a doubleheader at Wrigley Field, Strop dropped a snippet of his new song on his Twitter account:

The song, “RUMBA,” premiered last month and there is an official music video on YouTube:

Strop’s house is shown in the video, including a blown up photo of his 2016 World Series ring.

Strop ranks 6th in franchise history with 413 appearances and has the most holds ever by a Cubs reliever (120).
