David DeJesus Profile
For the second time this summer, the Cubs have dealt an outfielder to the Washington Nationals as center fielder David DeJesus was traded on Monday for a player to be named later. Outfielder Brian Bogusevic was activated from the disabled list to take his spot on the roster. The Cubs face Washington in a four-game series starting Monday.
DeJesus signed a two-year deal with the Cubs in Nov. of 2011 and he played in 148 games last year hitting .263/.350/.403 with nine homers and 50 RBI. DeJesus missed 33 games with a right shoulder sprain on June 14 and came off the DL July 24. He played in 84 games with Cubs in 2013 hitting .250/.330/.401 with six HR.
Bogusevic went on the disabled list July 15 with a left hamstring strain and rehabbed seven games in Mesa (.400/.531/.640) and in New Orleans last night going 1-5 with a walk in a 16-inning game for AAA Iowa. The left-hander from Oak Lawn, Illinois, started the season in Iowa hitting .319 (83-260) with 14 doubles, 10 homers and 50 runs scored in 78 games before being promoted to Wrigley Field. In 13 games with Chicago, he hit .261/277/326 with three doubles, three RBI and two stolen bases.
