CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs have hired Joe Bohringer as their director of pro scouting, the latest addition to their growing front office.

The 41-year-old Bohringer spent the past five seasons as a pro scout for the Arizona Diamondbacks after joining the club in 2006. He was an area scouting supervisor for Seattle for five seasons before that and was senior manager of player development for the Los Angeles Dodgers from 1998 to 2001.

In Chicago, he will report to new general manager Jed Hoyer. Tim Wilken, who was Chicago's director of amateur and professional scouting, will now oversee the amateur side.

The Cubs announced the hiring on Monday.
