Craig Monroe to the Cubs
For a PTBNL.
Add: The PTBNL is expected to be a pitcher from the 40-man roster. Players on the 40-man have to clear waivers to be traded in any deal between Aug. 1 and the end of the regular season, so that would explain the wait. The Cubs are heavy on left-handers, which the Tigers could use, but short of guys currently on their active 25-man roster, they don’t have many possibilities. Clay Rapada could seemingly be one.
