SAN FRANCISCO — A member of the Chicago Cubs' front office left for greener pastures on Sunday, with assistant general manager Scott Harris climbing the career ladder by being named the new general manager of the San Francisco Giants. Harris had served as the assistant general manager for the Cubs since 2018, working under Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein and Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer.

Epstein first hired Harris in 2012, when Harris was just 24 years old, and he worked his way up to becoming a valued Cubs executive. In San Francisco, Harris will be second-in-command to Giants President of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi in terms of player-personnel decisions. The Giants are still searching for a new manager, as longtime skipper Bruce Bochy retired at season's end.
