Girardi Baseball

Former New York Yankees manager and Chicago Cubs player Joe Girardi, above, was scheduled to interview with the Cubs for their managerial job on Wednesday. 

CHICAGO — The Cubs are set to interview Joe Girardi and David Ross for their manager job this week.

Girardi, 54, who has 11 years of managerial experience with the Marlins and Yankees, was scheduled to meet Wednesday with team officials, two sources said.

Girardi, who spent seven of his 14 seasons as a catcher with the Cubs (1989-92, 2000-02), also has been linked to the Mets, according to multiple reports. Girardi currently is serving as a Fox analyst for the American League Division Series between the Astros and Rays.

Ross, 42, will interview later this week. He serves as a special assistant in the Cubs' baseball operations department and as analyst for ESPN after a 14-year career that concluded with a 2016 World Series title with the Cubs.

The Cubs interviewed bench coach Mark Loretta on Thursday and first-base coach Will Venable on Monday, sources said.

The Cubs haven't announced a timetable for hiring a replacement for Joe Maddon. Maddon reportedly is the favorite to be hired as Angels manager after interviewing for the job Monday.
