As the Chicago Cubs wait on their apparent top choice for manager — Joe Girardi — they have met with former Washington Nationals and Cleveland Indians manager Manny Acta about the opening, Comcast SportsNet Chicago's David Kaplan reported.

Acta met on Monday with Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer, according to the report. Chicago is also looking at San Diego Padres bench coach Rick Renteria and Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr.

Acta's track record as manager of the Nationals and Indians is a far cry from that of Girardi, the Cubs' top target. Acta has compiled a 372-518 record between his time in Cleveland and Washington.
