The Washington Nationals traded third baseman Jeimer Candelario to the Chicago Cubs on Monday night, the team announced. In return, the Nationals received 22-year-old left-hander DJ Herz and 20-year-old shortstop Kevin Made. Herz is in Class AA; Made is in high Class A.

Candelario, a 29-year-old pending free agent, signed a one-year contract with the Nationals in the offseason after spending the past five-plus seasons with the Detroit Tigers. After a down year, he bounced back to hit .258 with 16 home runs and 53 RBI in 99 games while playing nearly every day at third base.
