Cubs, Diamondbacks finalizing deal for Miguel Montero

The Chicago Cubs are close to acquiring catcher Miguel Montero from the Arizona Diamondbacks, with some sources saying the deal is “all but done.”

Diamondbacks beat reporter Nick Piecoro reports that the Cubs will give up tow lower level pitching prospects for the catcher. One of those prospects is Jefferson Mejia. ¬†The 20-year-old pitcher hasn’t made it out of rookie ball yet but has a lot of upside.

We will update when more information is available. UPDATE: Pitcher Zack Godley is the other player in the deal. It’s now official.
