AP source: Pirates agree to hire Ben Cherington as GM

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pirates have agreed to hire Ben Cherington as their general manager, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Friday because the agreement had not been announced.

Pittsburgh scheduled a news conference on Monday to introduce its new GM without revealing the person's identity. Cherington will replace Neal Huntington, who was hired in September 2007 and fired in October.
