According to three sources close to the Associated Press, the San Diego Padres could promote Josh Byrnes to the general manager position if Jed Hoyer leaves for the Chicago Cubs. In an email, Byrnes said, “Hopefully we'll know soon,”, but when reached by phone, Hoyer said: `'I'm not commenting on anything.” Byrnes, the team's current vice president of baseball operations, had previous experience in the GM position when he worked with the Arizona Diamondbacks from 2005 to 2010. Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated reported earlier that Hoyer will john Theo Epstein as one of his top executives once Epstein's deal with the Cubs is finalized.
