Cubs GM Jed Hoyer, scouting director Jason McLeod get 5 more years

CINCINNATI -- Chicago Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer and scouting and player development director Jason McLeod agreed to contract extensions through the 2021 season Friday.

The team announced the deals before its game against the Cincinnati Reds.

The announcement comes days after the team also gave president of baseball operations Theo Epstein a five-year contract extension.

Hoyer and McLeod joined the franchise on Nov. 1, 2011, and have helped put together a team that has qualified for postseason play in consecutive seasons for just the third time in franchise history.

This year's team went into the final series of the regular season with a big-league-best 101-57 record -- just the third team in major league history to win a least 100 games within four years of a 100-loss season.
