Jed Hoyer: Cubs may lose a front office executive to another team

Tuesday September 13th, 2016

Chicago Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer believes the team may lose a front office executive to another team, according to CBS Sports.

“There’s one opening now, and there could be more,” Hoyer said. “We have people that really should be desirable, so I think that’s a strong possibility. We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.”

The Minnesota Twins recently requested to speak with senior vice president of scouting and player development Jason McLeod. The Cubs will allow McLeod to speak with the Twins at an appropriate time. Cubs assistant general manager Shiraz Rehman could also be another target.

McLeod and Rehman have been members of the Cubs organization since 2011.

The Cubs hold the best record in the major leagues with their 92–51 record heading into Tuesday night. The team could clinch a playoff berth by the end of the week.
