Sources: Hinch on Cubs' list

As the Chicago Cubs’ chances to hire Joe Girardi as manager seemingly diminish, here is one name to keep in mind: San Diego Padres assistant GM and former Arizona Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch.

As the Chicago Cubs’ chances to hire Joe Girardi as manager seemingly diminish, here is one name to keep in mind: San Diego Padres assistant GM and former Arizona Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch.

Hinch is on the Cubs' list of possibilities, according to sources and would be a more viable candidate from the Padres than special assistant Brad Ausmus, who managed Team Israel in the World Baseball Classic in March.

Hinch, the D-backs’ former farm director, has experience working with young players and as an MLB manager.

He had little chance to succeed as manager in Arizona.
