Cubs Acquire Pitcher Travis Lakins in Trade With Red Sox

The move puts the Cubs' 40-man roster at 40 players

The Chicago Cubs made a trade on Tuesday afternoon, acquiring right-handed pitcher Travis Lakins from the Boston Red Sox.

Lakins appeared in 16 games for the Red Sox last season, posting a 3.86 ERA in 23.1 innings of work. He struck out 18 batters and walked 10 in those appearances, according to a press release from the Cubs.

In exchange, the Cubs will send the Red Sox a player to be named later or cash considerations.

The addition of Lakins pushes the Cubs’ 40-man roster to 40 players, meaning the team would have to make a corresponding roster move to add any other players to that roster.

Long-time Blackhawks Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith reportedly had a bit of a scuffle at practice Tuesday.
