Tigers Trade Monroe To Cubs

Aug 23, 2007 2:12 PM EST

Craig Monroe quickly found himself back in a pennant race Thursday when the Tigers traded the slumping outfielder and cash to the Cubs for a player to be named later.

The Tigers designated Monroe for assignment last Friday and replaced him with highly touted prospect Cameron Maybin. The NL Central-leading Cubs will send a player to Detroit by Oct. 15. Detroit is close in the AL Central and wild-card races.
