BOSTON — Theo Epstein’s nine-year run as the general manager of his hometown team, the Boston Red Sox, could soon be coming to an end.

Epstein and the Cubs have agreed on a five-year contract, according to reports Wednesday by WEEI Radio in Boston and ESPN.com. Both outlets said that the deal hinges on the Cubs and Red Sox agreeing to compensation, since Epstein has a year remaining on his contract with Boston.

The deal is worth nearly $20 million, according to ESPN.com, which cited sources in reporting that the figure includes the Cubs picking up the conclusion bonus in Epstein’s contract.
