Marlon Byrd Trade: Cubs Send Outfielder To Boston Red Sox

This morning, rumors spread that the Chicago Cubs were close to trading struggling outfielder Marlon Byrd to the Boston Red Sox. After Chicago snapped its six-game losing streak on Saturday afternoon against the Cincinnati Reds, word came down that the trade is official, at least according to Bruce Levine of ESPN.

Byrd has been off to a horrendous start for Chicago, going 3-for-41 at the plate, good for a .070 average. Byrd also has two RBI and one run scored on the season.

Compensation coming back to the Cubs remains unknown at the time, though Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports said earlier in the day that Michael Bowden -- a product of Waubonsie Valley High School -- could be on his way to Chicago.
