Cubs acquired OF Michael Burgress, LHP Graham Hicks and RHP A.J. Morris from the Nationals for LHP Tom Gorzelanny.
Burgess, 22, batted .265/.357/.465 with 18 home runs, 85 RBI and an .822 OPS over 529 plate appearances between High-A Potomac and Double-A Harrisburg last season. The former 2007 supplemental first-round pick has good power and a strong arm in right field, but his plate discipline still needs some work. He has struck out over 100 times in each of the last three seasons. Burgess could still mature at the plate, but right now he projects as a left-handed bat off the bench in the big leagues.
