2012 Cubs Offseason: Jed Hoyer Compensation Narrowed Down To Low-Level Prospects

The Chicago Cubs, having pillaged GMs from both the Boston Red Sox and the San Diego Padres in the 2012 offseason, reportedly settled the terms of their second offseason compensation matter, this time agreeing on a group of low level prospects in exchange for GM Jed Hoyer, according to Scot Miller of CBS Sports:

The Cubs acquired the then-Padres-GM Jed Hoyer from San Diego shortly after they had consummated a contract to bring then-Red-Sox-GM Theo Epstein in as the team's President of Baseball Operations.

Chicago -- with assistance from the league commissioner, Bud Selig -- complete their compensation package to the Red Sox on Tuesday, sending once-top-prospect SP Chris Carpenter and a player to be named later to Boston. The Hoyer compensation is widely believed to be even less impressive.
