Cubs affected most from the Cole Hamels trade

Reports: Rangers Trading Cole Hamels To Cubs

Hamels played for the Phillies for almost ten seasons until being traded to the Rangers in the middle of the 2015 season. Yahoo's Jeff Passan says Texas is sending a "significant amount" of money in the deal to cover Hamels' salary and that they will receive prospects in return. With the Cubs over the last two seasons, he has an ERA of 3.98 in 11 starts and 10 relief appearances.

But the 34-year-old Hamels is an experienced playoff pitcher with a history of success at Wrigley Field.

Weeks later, another Guangxi zoo drew condemnation for displaying plastic butterflies . The pictures quickly went viral, with experts weighing in on the species of the animal.

Hamels is 5-9 with a 4.72 ERA in 20 starts with the Rangers and has struck out 114 in 114 1/3 innings. "We certainly know that", said Rangers general manager Jon Daniels, adding the Cubs were one of four teams he had serious discussions about on Thursday. Among starting pitchers with at least 90 innings this year, Chatwood's 19.4% walk rate leads the league ... by almost SIX PERCENTAGE POINTS. The Rangers will pick up $5 million of what's left on Hamels' $22.5 million salary for this year plus the $6 million buyout on his 2019 option. "I've not liked him for a long time", Maddon cracked.

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. Jesse Chavez was acquired in a July 19 trade for a minor league pitcher, and the veteran reliever pitched five scoreless innings over his first four appearances with Chicago. Hamels has made six starts at Wrigley, where he's 3-1 with a 1.76 ERA.
