Late Monday night it was announced that the Chicago Cubs had sent left-hander Paul Maholm and outfielder Reed Johnson to the Atlanta Braves for right-handed pitching prospects Arodys Vizcaino and Jaye Chapman.
Atlanta gets marginally better for this year with the additions of Maholm and Johnson, but the Cubs land the best prospect they're likely to obtain in this year's trade market in exchange for two players they didn't need.
Keith Law writes that the Cubs scored in their deal with the Braves.
