Fontenot Traded to Giants
Of Fontenot's six seasons with the Cubs, he spent most of the last four in Chicago. He batted .278 in 86 games in 2007 and .305 in 119 games the following year – both playoff seasons for the Cubs.
The 22-year-old Crawford, a speedy right-handed batting outfielder, batted .255 with four home runs, 12 doubles and triples and 24 stolen bases in 33 attempts this season for the Giants' Class-A Augusta affiliate.
Crawford was a ninth-round Giants draft pick from Indiana of the Big Ten in 2009 and led the conference with 27 stolen bases last year.
To coincide with the trade, the Cubs are expected to promote shortstop Darwin Barney from Iowa. Barney is batting .297 with 24 doubles in 113 games for Iowa this season. He was a fourth-round Cubs draft pick from Oregon State in 2007.
