Cubs send Mike Montgomery to Royals, receive Martin Maldonado in return

Kansas City acquired lefty Mike Montgomery from Chicago on Monday, the team announced. The Cubs got catcher Martín Maldonado in return.

The Royals signed Maldonado to a one-year deal in March, but the 32-year-old has underperformed at the plate, batting .224 after 73 games with the club.

Meanwhile, Montgomery made 20 relief appearances with the Cubs this season. He is 1-2 with a 5.67 ERA.

Royals’ Martin Maldonado wore a tie on his catching gear during Father’s Day game

Rule 3.03(c) of the Major League Baseball rulebook states: “No player whose uniform does not conform to that of his teammates shall be permitted to participate in a game.”

So technically, Royals catcher Martin Maldonado shouldn’t have been allowed to wear a tie* during Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field.

*Yeah, a tie ... a clip-on, no less

But, c’mon, this was a cool way to commemorate Father’s Day. And, it’s probably never been done in the history of baseball.
