The San Francisco Giants have hired Scott Harris as their new general manager, the team announced Sunday.

Harris takes over the Giants after seven years with the Chicago Cubs, more recently as an assistant GM. The California native was part of the Cubs front office that won the World Series in 2016.

The Giants fired their vice-president and general manager, Bobby Evans, in September. He had been part of the organization for 25 years.

Harris will act alongside Farhan Zaidi, the team’s head of baseball operations — hired in November 2018 — as San Francisco tries to get back into the post-season after three straight losing seasons.
