    Wasn’t Connolly traded to the Cubs a few years back? Was he in the Farnsworth trade? When did he come back into the system?

    He was traded to the Cubs, but it was for Felix Sanchez (I believe). Sanchez basically spent all his time in the Tiger organizaiton injured.

    I think Scott Moore and Roberto Novoa were the ones in the Farnsworth trade
