Cubs acquire Barret Loux from Rangers in deal for Jake Brigham

Rick Scuteri-US PRESSWIRE

Chicago sends Brigham back to Texas for Loux and a player to be named later.

The Chicago Cubs completed a trade on Tuesday to return Jacob Brigham to the Texas Rangers for minor league pitcher Barret Loux and a player to be named later, according to reports.

The deal sends Brigham back to the Rangers after the Cubs acquired the right-handed pitcher in a trade before the July deadline for catcher Geovany Soto. Brigham didn't work out for the Cubs after he was sidelined by a strained elbow after making just two starts for Double-A Tennessee where he finished 0-2 with a 19.64 ERA for the Smokies.

Along with a future player, the Cubs acquire Loux, a 23-year old right-handed pitcher who was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks with the sixth overall pick in 2010 out of Texas A&M. Pitching for Double-A Frisco, TX this past season, Loux finished with a 14-1 and 3.74 ERA in his 25 starts. Those numbers were good enough to earn Loux the Double-A Texas League Pitcher of the Year honors.
