DeJesus, 33, has been out for a little more than a month after suffering a right shoulder sprain while running into the outfield wall. He hit .260/.318/.445 (106 OPS+) with six home runs in 59 games as the club's everyday center fielder and leadoff hitter before the injury.
Chicago has been, by far, the most active seller leading up to this summer's trade deadline. They've already moved Matt Garza, Scott Feldman and Scott Hairston, and rumor has it Alfonso Soriano isn't too far behind. DeJesus is a solid everyday player signed affordably -- owed roughly $1.6 million for the remainder of this season with a $6.5 million club option for 2014 -- making him a prime piece of trade bait. He has a week to showcase himself before the trade deadline, though an August waiver deal is possible.
Sappelt, 26, hit .240/.269/.280 (51 OPS+) with three doubles in 75 plate appearances for the Cubs this year. He's hit .269/.311/.398 at the Triple-A level between call-ups.
