This is a big move for the Cubs as this gives them a good third starter. He is coming off an impressive season with the Cardinals going 13-10 with a 2.77 ERA. This was good enough to finish 9th in Cy Young voting.

I think the Cubs will add a final piece to the starting rotation and trading Jason Hammel making Kyle Hendricks the fifth starter in the rotation.
