The Toronto Blue Jays acquired Miguel Montero and cash considerations from the Chicago Cubs for a player to be named later.
Montero, 33, was DFA'd last week after he made critical comments regarding starter Jake Arrieta. Montero caught Arrieta in his start against the Nationals last week, when the Cubs allowed the Nats to steal seven bases.
Montero told reporters post game that Arrieta was slow to the plate and that is why he struggled defensively that evening.
Montero has played back up to Wilson Contreras all season, despite hitting .286 with four home runs in 44 games.
Montero will be making $14 million this season and the Cubs are expected to pick up around $7 million.
The two-time all-star will play back up to Russell Martin in Toronto, which is a huge upgrade over their current back up catcher, Luke Maile.
