Cubs manager Sveum waits to hear about his future

Tools

CHICAGO (AP) — Dale Sveum doesn't know if he'll be coming back for a third season as manager of the Chicago Cubs.

Sveum is under contract to return for 2014. But team president Theo Epstein has said all jobs will be evaluated after another losing season.

Sveum was hired by Epstein before the 2012 season as the Cubs started a major rebuilding project. Though Chicago's minor-league system has improved, the major league team has struggled as the club has shed long-term contracts and gone with younger players.

Sveum said before the Cubs' game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday that "I'm not going to sit here and lie that you're not wondering what's going to happen in four to five days from now."

He expects to hear his fate shortly after the season ends Sunday.
