There is never a boring day at 1060 West Addison. Several reports on Tuesday afternoon stated the Cubs had traded Jacque Jones, cash and a PTBNL to the Florida Marlins for a Class-A prospect. Jones had not been informed of the deal according to Ken Rosenthal and the deal hit what Rosenthal called a “major snag”. Jones was in uniform and in the dugout on Tuesday night against the Rockies.
Ryan Dempster was placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to Saturday with a strained left oblique likely ending his first half of the season. Dempster would be eligible to come off the DL on July 7th. To make room for Billy Petrick on the 40-man roster, the Cubs transferred Wade Miller to the 60-day DL.
