Breaking: Cubs Trade Mike Fontenot to Giants for A Ball Outfielder

Chicago Cubs Transactions

Breaking news: the Chicago Cubs have sent infielder Mike Fontenot across the diamond to the San Francisco Giants for Single A outfielder Evan Crawford, according to various sources.

The Giants unsuccessfully tried to acquire Fontenot before the non-waiver trade deadline. More details as they become available.

UPDATE: Crawford was the Giants 9th round pick last year, and although he put up decent numbers in Low A ball last year, he’s struggled this year in A ball. He just turned 22 last week, and is a speedy centerfielder.

UPDATE 2: AAA Iowa infielder Darwin Barney will finally get his shot in the bigs as a utility infielder, where he likely has a productive future. We’ll have some more on Barney tomorrow.
