Here’s a recap of the transactions that occurred yesterday in the world of National League baseball. There was a trade and the activation of a slugger from yesteryear.

The Chicago Cubs acquired 29-year-old right-hander Justin Germano from the Boston Red Sox yesterday for cash considerations. Boston designated Germano for assignment last week to make room on their roster for center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury.

In a corresponding roster move, the Cubs designated right-hander Jairo Asencio for assignment.

In other news, the San Diego Padres activated veteran outfielder Jeremy Hermida from the 60-day disabled list yesterday. Hermida had been sidelined since April due to a hernia. The Padres optioned the 28-year-old to Triple-A following his activation.

In a corresponding roster move, San Diego designated right-hander Mark Hamburger for assignment.
