If the trade is legit - with no word yet as to what the Cubs would receive, although they've stated previously they're in the market for young minor league pitchers as the franchise begins a total overhaul - it would strengthen Texas' World Series chances even more.
The two clubs completed a trade on Monday to move backup catcher Geovany Soto to Texas for minor league pitcher Jacob Brigham.
