CHICAGO (WNDU) – The Chicago Cubs are expected to hire former catcher David Ross as the club's next manager.
The news comes from several reports. The Chicago Sun-Times says that, after Ross' second interview with the team this week, he may be announced as the new manager as soon as Thursday.
Ross currently serves as a special assistant to the team. He has never managed at any level.
His fan-favorite status as ace Jon Lester's personal catcher and his role on the young 2016 World Series-winning team earned him the nickname "Grandpa Rossy."
