The Chicago Cubs offered their managerial job to Milwaukee Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum on Wednesday. According to the Sun-Times, some sources believe the Cubs introduce him as their new manager Friday.
“We can’t address anything specifically at this point,” Cubs president of baseball operation Theo Epstein told reporters Thursday, according to MLB.com. “As Jed (Hoyer) said (Wednesday), we’re at that stage. We’ve been open with (the media) throughout this process, very open, but when it gets to the final inning here, we need to keep things confidential. If and when we have something to announce, we’ll do so.”
