Hall of Famer Greg Maddux is back in baseball.

The former Cubs, Braves, Dodgers and Padres pitcher joined Los Angeles as a special assistant to President of Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman, the team announced Tuesday.

Maddox’s specific duties will include scouting, player development and working with both big-league and minor-league players, according to the L.A. Times.

Maddux, 49, was drafted by the Cubs in 1984 and spent the first seven seasons of his career in Chicago where he captured his first Cy Young Award in 1992.

Locked in a contract dispute the following offseason, Maddux headed for Atlanta as a free agent. He rejoined the Cubs in 2004 before being traded to the Dodgers. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2014.

He rejoined the Cubs as an assistant to GM Jim Hendry in 2010 before leaving the organization prior to the 2012 season to accept a similar position with the Rangers.

Maddux finished his 23-year career with 335 wins, 3,371 strikeouts and a lifetime 3.16 ERA.
