Cubs promote Rehman to assistant GM

The Cubs have promoted Shiraz Rehman to assistant general

manager.

The 34-year-old Rehman joined Chicago last November as assistant

to the general manager after spending six seasons in the Arizona

Diamondbacks’ front office. He also worked under Cubs president of

baseball operations Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer as

an intern in the Boston Red Sox’s baseball operations department in

2005.

Chicago now has two assistant general managers, with Randy Bush

continuing to serve in a role he has held since December 2006. The

Cubs announced the move on Thursday.
