According to Jon Heyman, the Cubs have traded David DeJesus to the Washington Nationals for a player to be named later. DeJesus spent a sizable amount of time on the DL this season, but in his year plus with the Cubs, he gave the Cubs a bit more than they paid for.
No word on whether there is money involved in the deal, but the Nationals now own a club option for $6.5 million on DeJesus next season. It's an option that will probably be exercised by the Nats.
