The Cubs have named Scott Harris, 25, the director of baseball operations replacing Scott Nelson, who was offered another position with the team last summer. Harris spent the last two seasons with Major League Baseball as the league coordinator of major league operations. He provided transaction support and analysis to all major league clubs and helped manage procedural operations in the league office.

He was an intern for the Cincinnati Reds in 2010 and with the Washington Nationals in 2008 before working for MLB.

Harris is a native of Redwood City, Calif., and a 2009 graduate of UCLA. He was attending Columbia Business School while working at MLB.
