Reports: Cubs trade Starlin Castro to the Yankees
NASHVILLE – After a quiet Monday, the Cubs are making some noise today at the Winter Meetings.
After signing versatile player Ben Zobrist last Tuesday afternoon the Cubs appear to have followed it up by pulling off another major move.
According to multiple reports the Cubs have traded infielder Starlin Castro to the New York Yankees in exchange for right-handed pitcher Adam Warren.
With the Yankees the past four seasons, Warren pitched in 43 games in 2015 including 17 starts. He finished with a record of 7-7 with a 3.29 ERA and one save.
Warren pitched 131 innings last year and had 104 strikeouts.
Castro has been with the Cubs since 2010 and has a career average of .281 with 62 career homers with the team.
Once considered the face of a new era of the Cubs, Castro was benched for a while in the middle of the 2015 season. He would rebound late in the seasons to finish up with a .265 average with 11 homers and 69 RBIs on the season.
