Former Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs architect Theo Epstein is set to join Major League Baseball as a consultant for on-field issues, The Score reported Thursday.

An announcement is expected later Thursday.

Epstein stepped down as president of baseball operations for the Cubs in November.

Epstein, 47, was the architect of the Cubs’ World Series title in 2016, the club’s first in 108 years. Prior to joining the Cubs, Epstein engineered the end of an 86-year World Series drought in Boston as the Red Sox rolled to titles in 2004 and 2007.
