Cubs Grab Monroe For His Righty Pop

Jim Callis -

With Alfonso Soriano and Angel Pagan on the disabled list, the National League Central-leading Cubs have sought an outfielder who can hit lefthanders. They made a deal for one on Thursday, acquiring Craig Monroe from the Tigers for a player to be named plus cash toward his $4.775 million salary. Detroit acquired Triple-A lefthander Clay Rapada to complete the deal on Aug. 30.
