CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs' search for a radio analyst to replace Keith Moreland may be down to two names, according to a source familiar with the process.

Current television studio analyst Todd Hollandsworth and former player and Chicago native Ron Coomer are the frontrunners, although there are a “couple others still in the picture,” according to the source.

Hollandsworth, who was Rookie of the Year for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1996, played for the Cubs in 2004-05. He’s been the pre- and post-game analyst for Cubs games on ComcastSportsNet since 2009.

Coomer played one season (2001) for the Cubs before retiring from his playing career in 2003. He’s been an analyst for the Minnesota Twins' radio and television outlets after playing for the Twins for five seasons.

The Cubs flagship station, WGN Radio, said they hoped to have a replacement for Moreland by mid-January when the Cubs Convention takes place.
