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.

CHICAGO — Tsuyoshi Wada earned his first big league win, pitching seven strong innings Monday night as the Chicago Cubs defeated the Colorado Rockies 4-1.

Baseball Hall of Fame 2014: TV and Player Information for Induction Ceremony

Jul 26 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Much of the focus in baseball this time of year revolves around the trade deadline, but this weekend Cooperstown, New York, will take center stage for the 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame ceremony.  There are times when it is hard to get excited about a Hall of Fame class, like last year when the only people inducted were a former executive (Jacob Ruppert), a player who died in 1939 (Deacon White) and an umpire (Hank O'Day).

Valbuena rallies Cubs past slumping Cardinals

CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs don’t have the look of a team more interested in draft position than on-field success. One day after the Central Division cellar-dwellers couldn’t have looked worse in a 13-3 embarrassment against the lowly San Diego Padres, they showed some grit in a come-from-behind, 7-6 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, who suffered their fourth consecutive loss on Friday. A persistent wind at the ...
