Hoyer gets new assistant GM in Rehman

CHICAGO -- The Cubs promoted Shiraz Rehman to assistant general manager, reporting to GM Jed Hoyer, on Thursday.

The team now will have two assistant GMs in Rehman and Randy Bush, who will continue to serve in the role he has held since December 2006.

Rehman, 34, joined the Cubs in November as assistant to the GM after six seasons with the D-backs, where he was director of player personnel. He also held the titles of director of baseball operations (2009-10) and manager of baseball operations (2007-08) after joining the D-backs as a baseball operations assistant in December 2005.
