More than three months after the Chicago Cubs hired former Boston Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein, the two teams finally have a deal on what the Red Sox will receive in return.
Reliever Chris Carpenter and a player to be named will go to Boston with the Cubs receiving another player to be named as part of the deal.
Carpenter, 26,was the Cubs’ third-round pick in the 2008 draft. The right-hander appeared in 10 games for Chicago last season — pitching 9 2/3 innings with eight strikeouts, seven walks and a 2.79 ERA.
