8/15 Fleita out of Cubs front office
Oneri Fleita, who has overseen the Cubs’ Minor League organization and international scouting operations for 12 seasons, was dismissed on Wednesday. Fleita joined the Cubs in 1995 as a Minor League manager, and has overseen the development of the Minor League players as well as establishing the Cubs’ presence in the Dominican Republic. Jason McLeod was named the head of scouting and player development last November, taking over Fleita’s duties, but Fleita had been named vice president of player personnel.
