Report: Ben Cherington to Take Over as Red Sox General ManagerIt was suspected that Ben Cherington would take over as Red Sox general manager once Theo Epstein‘s departure for the Cubs was finalized. Neither moves are officially set in stone yet, but Cherington is reportedly set to take over as GM.

Yahoo! Sports reported on Thursday that Cherington will indeed be the man to take over for his former boss once Epstein’s move to the North Side of Chicago becomes official. Tim Brown, who broke the story for Yahoo!, said via Twitter on Thursday afternoon that sources have indicated that Cherington was told he would get the job.

The 37-year-old Cherington is a New Hampshire native who has an extensive history with the club. He was brought in as an intern in 1997 under general manager Dan Duquette, then hired by the club in 1999.

From there, Cherington worked up the organizational ladder, gaining experience in scouting and player development throughout the system. He most recently served as the vice president of player personnel under Epstein.
