Former Cubs Exec Jason McLeod Lands with the Diamondbacks

Chicago Cubs

Former long-time Cubs executive Jason McLeod has found a new home after departing the organization earlier this offseason.

McLeod is joining the Cubs-to-Dimondbacks pipeline started by Jared Porter and Jason Parks:

Porter, of course, had long since departed for the Mets GM job (which was short-lived), so I’m not implying that’s the connection here. That said, the Diamondbacks front office is run by Mike Hazen and Amiel Sawdaye, who would have had connections with McLeod going back to their shared days in Boston (way back before Jed Hoyer and McLeod left for the Padres, and then eventually came back together with the Cubs in late 2011).

All the best to McLeod with the Diamondbacks. He was a huge part of what the Cubs built up from 2011 on, and although everyone seemed to agree it was a time for a change, there’s nothing but well-wishes here.
