The Cubs are wearing a small patch on the left sleeve of their jerseys Sunday in honor of the now deceased Ron Santo, who was finally inducted into the Hall of Fame this morning in Cooperstown, New York. Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune passes along this photo from the visitor’s clubhouse at Busch Stadium:
Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.
Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
