No not a MLB move but I got you excited - admit it.
The Chicago Cubs traded left-handed reliever Darin Downs to the Tampa Bay Rays for a player to be named.
The 23-year-old Downs, who was a fifth round draft pick in 2003, was 0-2 with a 6.56 earned-run average in 22 appearances with the Smokies.
Downs was assigned by the Rays to Class A Vero Beach, Fla.
