Greg Maddux Joins Cubs Front Office
CHICAGO (AP) -- Pitching great Greg Maddux has rejoined the Chicago Cubs as an assistant to general manager Jim Hendry.

The 355-game winner, who started his major league career with the Cubs in 1986 and later rejoined them from 2004-06, retired as a player after the 2008 season.

He will help develop players in his new job.

Maddux retired as the eighth-winningest pitcher in history. He won the first of his four career Cy Young Awards with the Cubs in 1992, when he went 20-11 with a 2.18 ERA before leaving as a free agent and signing with Atlanta.

He later pitched for the Padres and Dodgers.
