Cubs acquire Daniel Murphy from Nationals

Cubs acquire Daniel Murphy from Nationals

Murphy got off to a slow start this year coming off of major surgery but is hitting.300/.341/.442 on the season and has been particularly hot of late.

The Nationals were coming off two consecutive division titles under manager Dusty Baker, who was sacked after last season and replaced by rookie skipper Dave Martinez.

Cardinals infielder Matt Carpenter is clearly excited to have Adams back, as he tweeted that he is going to "bathe" Adams in his salsa.

Interim manager Mike Shildt said Adams will join the team at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday and be activated for the series finale against Los Angeles.




In his return to the Cardinals, Adams will likely see more playing time in the outfield or as a designated hitter, considering home run crusher Matt Carpenter plays first base for St. Louis. Adams, 29, is hitting.257 with 18 homers, 48 RBI and a.510 slugging percentage. He went on the disabled list July 31 for a right shoulder strain and missed 19 games.

Washington sent second baseman Daniel Murphy to the Cubs on Tuesday for minor leaguer Andruw Monasterio and a player to be named or cash, the teams announced.

Wisdom, 26, was purchased from Memphis on August 11 and played in nine games for the Cardinals batting.333 (4-12) with a home run and three RBI.

Dexter Fowler was also moved from the 60-day DL to the 10-day DL.
