Cubs trade Miguel Montero to Blue Jays

The Chicago Cubs officially cut ties with catcher Miguel Montero by trading him Monday to the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Cubs will receive either a player to be named later or cash considerations for Montero, 33, who was designated for assignment Wednesday.

Montero was taken off the 25-man roster Wednesday after making critical comments about Jake Arrieta and the rest of the rotation’s inability to hold base runners.
