Cameron Maybin — who played in 18 games in 2020 for the Chicago Cubs — has been traded to the New York Mets for cash considerations. For those people waiting for that big trade by the Chicago Cubs of one of their blue-chip players, this news may feel a little underwhelming. Sorry to disappoint.
The Mets recently placed outfielder Kevin Pillar on the 10-day IL, so this move is likely being made to provide the big-league team with some additional depth.
