Cubs get catcher Maldonado from Royals for LHP Montgomery

CHICAGO (AP) With their All-Star catcher sidelined, the Chicago Cubs quickly found some experienced help behind the plate.

The NL Central leaders acquired Martin Maldonado in a trade with Kansas City on Monday night that sent left-hander Mike Montgomery to the Royals.

Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein announced the deal following Chicago's 6-3 loss to Cincinnati - adding that top catcher Willson Contreras was going on the 10-day injured list with a strain to the arch area of his right foot.
