Twins After Craig Monroe?

UPDATE: The deal is official.

This is odd: Joe Christensen reports that the Cubs may send Craig Monroe to the Twins for a player to be named later, perhaps today.  For the Cubs, getting something for Monroe is gravy since they would non-tender him otherwise.  I guess the Twins like the idea of Monroe on a one-year, $5MM commitment as opposed to the free agent options in left field.

I wonder if any other non-tender candidates might be moved?  Guys like Ben Broussard, Joe Crede, Morgan Ensberg, Kevin Mench, Mark Prior, Josh Towers, and Claudio Vargas are possibilities.
