David Ross on Cubs List for Maddon Successor

CHICAGO (AP) — Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein says former catcher David Ross is on the team’s list of candidates for its manager job. He also says he wants to talk to at least one member of the coaching staff, and at least one other candidate is working for a team in the playoffs. Epstein is looking for a successor to Joe Maddon, whose contract expired after Chicago missed the playoffs this year for the first time since 2014.
