Cubs acquire Cole Hamels in trade with Rangers

Cole Hamels goes from last place to first place when he joins the Chicago Cubs during this weekend's series at St. Louis. Merely moving to a team in the midst of a pennant race that will be playing in packed houses in front of hungry, raucous fans for the next two-plus months theoretically could help Hamels improve upon the 4.72 ERA he posted in his first 20 starts of the 2018 season.

Hamels has made six starts at Wrigley, where he's 3-1 with a 1.76 ERA. For his career, Hamels, a four-time all-star, is 7-6 with a 3.48 ERA in October and was the most valuable player of both the NL Championship Series and World Series in 2008 as the ace of the Phillies.

The trade was reported yesterday, and Cole Hamels gave his now-former Rangers teammates hugs as he left the ballpark during the game against the A's, but now the Cole Hamels trade is official.

But Mourinho later suggested that the Italian is set to leave the side and he gave the armband to respect the player. "I spoke with the manager a week after the holidays", said Shaw.

The Cubs reportedly struck a deal with the Rangers to acquire Hamels, 34, for low-level minor-leaguers. "That was something I wanted to be able to do in Texas, and it didn't happen".

Yu Darvish, who signed a $126 million, six-year contract in February, is on the disabled list with a right elbow impingement and inflammation, and it's unclear when he might return. He's an arm who can eat some innings I suppose.

Quintana was acquired in a costly trade with the crosstown White Sox last July that included touted prospects Eloy Jimenez and Dylan Cease. The Cubs referenced that no-hitter in a tweet after the trade was announced. Lacy, 23, is 5-2 with a 2.45 ERA in 18 appearances (12 starts) in two levels of the Cubs' system.
