The Chicago Cubs are in line to land Astros executive Ehsan Bokhari as assistant general manager, according to Shadev Sharma of The Athletic.

Like general manager Carter Hawkins, Bokhari has spent his entire career within two successful organizations. The past two years, he served as the Astros senior director of player evaluation. Bokhari was a senior analyst with the Dodgers for four years prior to his stint in Houston.

It seems Hawkins and Bokhari have very similar minds. Sharma’s piece notes his approach to his previous positions in baseball.

“According to those who have worked with him in the past, Bokhari brings that academic mindset to his job in baseball. He’s known for being very rigorous in making sure that the processes that lead to certain conclusions — whether they’re coming via a model or through scouting by the human eye — are sound.”

Bokhari will assume the role previously occupied by Randy Bush, who has stepped down and taken an advisory role with the organization. This internal shift allowed Jed Hoyer to add Bokhari.

The Cubs front office now has Hawkins, Bokhari, assistant GM Craig Breslow, and VP of special projects Jared Banner.
