Castro a three-time All-Star struggled during the first half of the season. Last season he hit .265 with 11 home runs and 69 RBIs. The 25-year-old shortstop is currently signed through 2019 with a team option for 2020.
The Cubs will receive Adam Warren and Brenden Ryan. Adam Warren went 7-7 with a 3.29 ERA striking out 104 batters and walking 39. He pitched in 43 games for the Yankees and started 17 of them.
Brendan Ryan is an infielder. He played 47 games for the Yankees. He hit .229 with 8 RBIs.
Starlin was traded so the Cubs would have room for Ben Zobrist which you can read about here
