Cubs Bank On Kendall Rebounding

Jim Callis -

The Cubs have gotten next to no offense out of their catchers since banishing Michael Barrett to San Diego a month ago. Chicago made a move designed to rectify that situation Monday, acquiring former all-star Jason Kendall from the Athletics for Rob Bowen and Double-A lefthander Jerry Blevins. Oakland also will contribute cash toward the remainder of Kendall's 2007 salary.
