One More Cubs Trade: Outfield Prospect Jimmy Herron to the Rockies for IFA Pool Space

Chicago Cubs

Well that’s not a deal you typically see at the Trade Deadline, but it’s a fine one.

The Cubs needed some IFA pool space after their spending splurge on July 2, and they part with their 3rd rounder from last year, outfielder Jimmy Herron, to get it. Herron, 23, hadn’t quite hit yet at High-A in his first full professional season, but given his pedigree, I anticipate the Cubs got a decent chunk of IFA space (TBA). Perhaps even enough to add an additional prospect or two from the late-signing portion of the IFA market.
