Carter Hawkins was formally introduced as the Chicago Cubs' new general manager on Monday.

Hawkins comes to Chicago after 14 seasons with the Cleveland Indians, including the last five as an assistant general manager. He also supervised the team's player development department.

"What Jed [Hoyer] and Theo [Epstein] started to put together roughly 10 years ago today has raised the bar in Chicago for baseball to an incredibly high level," Hawkins said. "The challenge is how do we raise it even further, and that is a difficult challenge, but one I'm eager to take on."
