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.

Joe Maddon is prepared to sit out 2015 season if need be, agent says

Oct 25 2014 5:56pm CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

Free-agent manager Joe Maddon doesn't have many viable options if he wants to manage a ballclub in the 2015 season. Three teams (Houston Astros, Texas Rangers and Arizona Diamondbacks) have already hired managers, and that really only leaves him with a few choices. The Minnesota Twins are the only club with an actual job opening, but that would be a downgrade from his previous stint in Tampa Bay. ...

Exploring Joe Maddon's options as a free agent

Oct 24 2014 3:14pm CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

Joe Maddon has resigned as manager of the Tampa Bay Rays, opting out of the remainder of his contract.  He had a clause in his deal that let him leave the Rays if the GM left (GM Andrew Friedman moved to the Dodgers last week). So where is he going to manage in 2015? The timing is interesting here, since three teams (Astros, Rangers, DBacks) have already hired new managers this off-season.  Maddon’s options ...
