Former Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum hired by Kansas City Royals


Well it didn’t take former Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum that much time to find a new gig.

Sveum was fired by the Cubs on Monday and was hired to be apart of the Kansas City Royals (according to Kansas City news) staff next season. There has been an announcement that he has been hired on to be an instructor. 

He only spent two seasons with the Chicago Cubs and had a combined record of 134-202 through 336 games managed with the North Siders. It was a possibility that he picked up either a bench coach or third base coach position since the organization wasn’t sure if they were going to renew the contracts of Chino Cadahia or Eddie Rodriguez, but they did. 

With Sveum already finding a new home, the Cubs are still trying to get interviews together in hopes of picking up a manager who can get this team to the next level. They could be pushing hard for Joe Girardi who could be preparing to become the highest paid manager in all of baseball either by the New York Yankees or Chicago Cubs.

Congratulations to Dale and best of luck too him in Kansas City.
