Rangers send Cole Hamels to Cubs in trade

The Cubs were in agreement with the Rangers in a trade that would net Cole Hamels.

The Cubs' deal to acquire Cole Hamels from the Rangers is done, according to Yahoo Sports. In order to cover the salary of Hamels, Passan notes Texas also will send a "significant amount of cash". He has made 12 starts and six relief appearances in 2018, posting a 2.45 ERA with 94 strikeouts and 24 walks in 80.2 innings in low-A and high-A combined. While they missed out on him in 2015 when he no-hit the Cubs at Wrigley Field, they were able to win the sweepstakes this time around.

The 34-year-old Hamels is 5-9 with a 4.72 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 20 starts this season.

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. His Rangers contract contained a partial no-trade clause, but the Cubs were not among the teams he could block. "I've not liked him for a long time", Maddon cracked. He is a great competitor and has great stuff.

He will assemble the squad that is expected to compete in the 2019 World Cup in China and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. He appeared in a photo with Raptors president Masai Ujiri and general manager Bobby Webster over the weekend.

Another Major League Baseball pitcher is on the move. The San Diego native struck out 13 while pitching a no-hitter at Chicago's iconic ballpark in his final start with the Phillies in 2015.

Imagine what the NL Central race would look like now if the Cubs had instead signed Miles Mikolas, who reinvented himself in Japan and reemerged as an All-Star and a bright spot in an otherwise dark season for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Lacy, 23, was the Cubs' 11th round pick in the 2017 draft.

Quintana was acquired in a costly trade with the crosstown White Sox last July that included touted prospects Eloy Jimenez and Dylan Cease.
