Outfielder Kyung-Min Na, 20, was transferred from extended spring training to Fort Wayne. Na was acquired from the Chicago Cubs along with right-handed pitcher Andrew Cashner in exchange for infielder Anthony Rizzo, and former Fort Wayne TinCaps right-hander Zach Cates on Jan. 6, 2012. Na, a native of Seoul, South Korea, originally signed with the Chicago Cubs as a non-drafted free agent on August 12, 2009.

In 2011 Na split time between the rookie level Arizona League Cubs, the Boise Hawks of the Class-A Northwest League, the Peoria Chiefs of the Midwest League and the Tennessee Smokies of the Double-A Southern League. Over 83 games, the left-handed hitting Na batted .268 (72-269) with no home runs, 22 runs batted in and 20 stolen bases.
