  • Reports: Rangers Trading Cole Hamels To Cubs

The Cubs got the left-hander Friday, trading pitchers Eddie Butler and Rollie Lacy and a player to be named to Texas.

In the midst of a relatively weak trade market for starting pitching, the Cubs were one of the teams pursuing Blue Jays lefty J.A. Happ, whom the New York Yankees acquired earlier Thursday from the Blue Jays. And although the lefty is 5-9 with a 4.72 ERA through 20 starts this season, he brings a veteran presence and another arm for what could be a deep playoff run for Chicago.

He was the National League Championship Series and World Series MVP when Philadelphia won the title in 2008, and is 7-6 with a 3.48 ERA in 16 career post-season starts. Hamels played for the Phillies for almost ten seasons until being traded to the Rangers in the middle of the 2015 season. "It's always that chase for that World Series, you start [to] realize how hard it is to achieve, " Hamels said. Butler, 27, is 1-1 with a 4.08 ERA in eight appearances for the Cubs this season and 0-3 with an 8.10 ERA in five starts at Triple-A Iowa.
