The Chicago Cubs have reportedly hired Rick Renteria as their new manager, per multiple reports.

The Chicago Cubs have reportedly hired Rick Renteria as their new manager, per multiple reports. 

According to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, Renteria will officially be introduced as the Cubs' new skipper on Thursday. The 51-year-old Renteria was previously a coach of the San Diego Padres for six seasons and was thought of by team president Theo Epstein to "fit numerous qualifications." 

Among these qualifications are Renteria's previous experience working with young players and the fact that he is bilingual. The first one is related to his days in the then-Florida Marlins' and Padres' farm systems while the second attribute allows him to communicate effectively with Cubs prospects Starlin Castro, Junior Lake and Javier Baez. 

Gonzales' colleague, Goron Wittenmyer, reported on Nov. 6 that Renteria signed a three-year contract. 

His hiring is all but official unless the 2013 World Series champions Boston Red Sox allow the Cubs to interview their bench coach, Torey Lovullo, per CBS Chicago.

Lovullo's chances of becoming Cubs manager is complicated by a no-compete clause which was consummated between the two teams in 2011 when Epstein left the Red Sox to become Cubs president. 

The clause forbids Epstein from hiring any Red Sox personnel for a three-year period, per MLB's official website. 

Renteria beat out other candidates for the Cubs managerial job who include Padres assistant general manager A.J. Hinch, former Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge, Tampa Bay Rays bench coach Dave Martinez, former Washington Nationals manager Manny Acta and former Padres special assistant Brad Ausmus, who has since been hired as the new manager of the Detroit Tigers

Former Cubs manager Dale Sveum was fired on Sept. 30 after two seasons. He posted a 66-96 record in the 2013 campaign. He was hired by the Kansas City Royals three days later to handle infield instruction and other coaching duties.

The Chicago Cubs Should Take a Serious Look at Ron Gardenhire

Sep 29 2014 9:32pm CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

The Chicago Cubs front office has a plan. Rick Renteria is a part of that plan. His role, you ask? To fill the void in the dugout until a playoff run is imminent. It’s nothing against Renteria, but there’s no way he will be the guy Theo and Jed want guiding the North Siders into contention. Names will emerge, and the first legitimate candidate might just be their man. Ron Gardenhire was fired by the Minnesota Twins on Mond ...
