Cubs acquire Cole Hamels in trade with Rangers

Reports: Rangers Trading Cole Hamels To Cubs

He was 5-2 with a 2.45 ERA in 18 games this year at Class A South Bend and Class A Myrtle Beach.

Veteran starter Cole Hamels goes from the Rangers to the Cubs. The teams had agreed to the trade Thursday, pending physicals for the players involved.

The Cubs increased their efforts to acquire Hamels after the Toronto Blue Jays sent J.A. Happ to the New York Yankees.

The 34-year old has had a rough season with a 5-9 record with a 4.72 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. It was his last start for the Phillies before being dealt to the Rangers. He's struck out 114 in 114 1/3 innings.

Avenatti: Cohen Tapes Contain 'very damaging admissions' By Trump on 'critical issues'
Avenatti has a history of taunting the president with claims to have more information on Trump's alleged indiscretions. Cohen's legal matters will not be tried in the court of public opinion, but in a court of law", Blakely said.

At minimum, he gives them additional rotation depth to use while Yu Darvish is out injured and Tyler Chatwood is busy walking the world. His 2.93 road ERA is the 12th-lowest in baseball.

Hamels is 152-111 in his career with a 3.43 ERA in 383 games with the Rangers and Phillies, and he's 7-6 with a 3.48 postseason ERA. Chatwood walked six batters in the Cubs' 7-6 walk-off victory over Arizona on Thursday, giving him 85 walks in 94 innings.

"It's always that chase for that World Series, you start realize how hard it is to achieve", Hamels said. The Cubs emptied their once rich farm system on the way to three straight NLCS appearances and a historic championship in 2016, hurting their chances of making a major trade this year.

Hamels has been in awful form recently, allowing 25 earned runs in his last 22 innings pitched, raising his ERA to 4.72. "Going to Chicago, set up pretty nicely to be able to do so, I'm really excited to just kind of move right in and be a part of that".
