DeJesus was basically traded for nothing, according to a person familiar with the deal. The Nationals had the option of sending a player to be named later or cash. The Nationals will instead pay a fraction of the waiver fee and will not send a player to the Cubs. The deal was essentially a straight waiver claim. The Cubs unloaded nearly $2.5 million off their books and the Nationals acquired a player they like without giving up a prospect.
Not quite sure how to explain all this to a 3 year old who sleeps on a Cubs pillow every night and calls the clubhouse his basement
Oh boy, Rosenthal reports DDJ has been claimed off waivers by another team.
The Rays, it seems. Why am I not surprised that Friedman et al seem to be making a logical pickup?
Perhaps the Rays want him as a platoon LFer for the defensive upgrade, pushing Joyce to mostly DH duties? A DeJesus - Jennings - Myers OF is pretty good defensively.

#56 The Rays couldn't have successfully claimed him unless all NL teams passed. On the other hand Washington may have claimed him to keep him from the Braves and would likely have pulled him back had the Braves but in a claim if that's the case.
Well done, #39.
