Cubs-Rangers make minor trade


Recommended Posts

CHICAGO ? (AP) ? The Chicago Cubs traded right-hander Jon Leicester to the Texas Rangers on Wednesday for a player to be named.


Leicester, 26, spent most of last season at Triple-A Iowa, going 3-8 with a save and a 5.51 ERA in 16 starts and eight relief appearances. He also appeared in six games with the Cubs, making one start. He pitched well in relief as a rookie for Chicago during 2004.


Selected by the Cubs in the 11th round of the 2000 amateur draft, Leicester had a 5-3 record with a 4.80 ERA in 38 games with Chicago. All but one of his appearances were in relief.
