The Cubs Acquire Martin Maldonado From The Royals

The Chicago Cubs have made a move to bring in gold glove catcher Martin Maldonado from the Kansas City Royals

The Royals will get left-hander pitcher Mike Montgomery in exchange for Maldonado. This move comes as no surprise with the Cubs all-star catcher  Willson Contreras being on the Injury list. Contreras has a strain left foot but is not expected to miss a significant amount of time. 

Maldonado will likely be a backup for the Cubs, but he will an above-average player especially defensively.
