Cubs Make Deal With Toronto

CHICAGO (AP) -- CHICAGO (AP) -- The Cubs added bullpen depth by acquiring right-hander David Phelps from Toronto for minor league righty Thomas Hatch. As part of the trade announced Tuesday, the Blue Jays will send cash to Chicago to offset some of Phelps' contract.
The 32-year-old tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow in spring training in 2017 and did not return to the major leagues until this June 17. He had a 3.63 ERA in 17 relief appearances with the Blue Jays, going 0 for 2 in save chances.
Phelps is the third player in three days traded by the rebuilding Blue Jays after right-hander Marcus Stroman was sent to the New York Mets and utilityman Eric Sogard to Tampa Bay.
