11/14 Rehman named assistant to GM
The Cubs added to the front office on Monday, naming Shiraz Rehman as assistant to the GM. Rehman, 34, joins the team after six seasons with the D-Backs, most recently as director of player personnel. He was director of baseball operations from 2009-2010, and manager of baseball operations from 2007-08. Rehman will report to GM Jed Hoyer on potential player acquisitions and assist in scouting, financial and statistical information to support trade and player evaluation. The Red Sox connection? Rehman interned in Boston in 2005 in the baseball operations department.
