The Chicago Cubs made a last-minute trade before Wednesday's deadline, acquiring Nick Castellanos from the Detroit Tigers.
The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal first reported the deal, which took place just before the 3 p.m. trade deadline.
The Cubs will also acquire a cash consideration in the trade, the team said in a press release.
Castellanos has a .273 batting average with 11 home runs and 37 RBIs in 403 plate appearances this season. He also has a .328 on-base percentage with the Tigers.
To make room on the 40-man roster, the Cubs have designated pitcher Oscar De La Cruz for assignment.
In exchange, the Cubs sent Single-A pitching prospects Paul Richan and Alex Lange to the Tigers in the deal. In 17 appearances with the Single-A Myrtle Beach Pelicans, Richan has a 10-5 record and a 3.97 ERA, with 86 strikeouts in 93 innings of work.
Lange, also with the Pelicans, has a 1-9 record and a 7.36 ERA in 11 starts.
The Cubs also acquired utilityman Tony Kemp from the Houston Astros in a trade Wednesday, sending back-up catcher Martin Maldonado to the Lone Star State.
On Tuesday, the Cubs acquired reliever David Phelps in a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays, adding yet another arm to their bullpen ahead of the stretch run.
