The Blue Jays have announced that they have acquired Miguel Montero from the Cubs for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Montero was designated for assignment last week after he publicly criticized teammate Jake Arrieta for his alleged inability to hold baserunners. That made him toxic in the Cubs clubhouse, but for basically nothing — the Cubs will pick up most of the remaining money on his contract — the Jays will take a backup catcher who can still hit a little.
