SAN DIEGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs hired former San Diego Padres manager Andy Green as bench coach Monday.
Green will join the staff of first-year manager David Ross after being fired by San Diego in September. The former big league infielder was 274-366 over four seasons leading the Padres.
Mike Napoli, a 12-year major league veteran who retired after the 2017 season, joined Ross' staff as a quality assurance coach. He and Ross were teammates on the 2013 World Series champion Boston Red Sox.
