General Manager Jim Frey lost his struggle for control of the Chicago Cubs and was replaced by Larry Himes, former general manager of the Chicago White Sox. Frey took over as general manager after the 1987 season, but his power eroded in a battle with former club President Don Grenesko.

Doc Edwards, who was promoted from bullpen coach to manager midway through the Cleveland Indians' disastrous 1987 season, was rehired Wednesday to manage the team in 1988. Edwards directed Cleveland to a 30-45 record after taking over July 16, when Pat Corrales was fired. The Indians were 31-56 under Corrales.
