Jim Mandelaro, of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, is reporting that the Twins have sent Class AAA outfielder Doug Deeds to the Cubs as the player to be named in the Craig Monroe trade. From Jim’s Extra Bases blog:
Deeds is a career .291 hitter who batted just .243 in 86 games for Rochester last season. He was destined to be another spare part this year with the Wings, and the Twins decided to give him a new lease on life elsewhere.
