Cubs Acquire Trachsel

Friday, August 31, 2007

The Chicago Cubs have traded Rocky Cherry and Scott Moore to the Baltimore Orioles for Steve Trachsel. Trachsel, who started his career with the Cubs, will be starting a lot this month. "I see him starting," Cubs general manager Jim Hendry said Friday. "We wanted to try to augment the pitching. We've got extra games coming. We're in the time of year when you don't want to get caught short. This season, Trachsel is 6-8 with a 4.48 ERA and 45 K. Cherry and Moore were in AAA for the Cubs. Moore, who batted .265 with 19 HR and 69 RBI with AAA Iowa, did make his debut with the Cubs last season. He can play 1B and 3B. Cherry, who got his first big league win with the Cubs, was 2-0 with a 4.59 ERA and 7 K.
