Cubs - Acquired Nevin
Chicago Cubs - Acquired 1B Phil Nevin from the Texas Rangers for 2B-OF Jerry Hairston Jr..
In a shocking turn of events, the Cubs, in one single move, actually attempt to address a real weakness and actually reduce the number of second basemen on their roster.
No, Nevin’s not really a good player anymore, but given that the Cubs want to use Todd Walker at first, it makes sense to get a guy who can still crush lefties. Nevin will stick around after Lee comes back as a bat off of the bench, another thing that the Cubs haven’t really tried to have the last couple of seasons.
Hairston isn’t really an ideal fit for the Rangers as they have the position that Hairston’s most valuable at, second base, well covered for the time being. Hairston does have more use than Nevin in that he can back up the other Jr. in the outfield.
