Banister also said newly-acquired right-hander Eddie Butler will get consideration as a starter after the trade deadline passes.

In that very instant, Cole Hamels had become the most sought out arm on the trade market - especially by the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs are expected to provide the Rangers only secondary prospects and take on roughly $4 million of the $14.2 million-ish Hamels is owed between the rest of his salary this year and a $6 million buyout on his 2019 contract.

Hamels is 1-3 in his last five starts, allowing 25 earned runs in 22 innings and raising his ERA from 3.41 to a career-high 4.72. With the Cubs over the last two seasons, he has an ERA of 3.98 in 11 starts and 10 relief appearances. He played for the Phillies from 2006 to 2015 and won a World Series, a World Series MVP and an NLCS MVP with them in 2008.

"To be able to change kind of the mindset, now to go on a first-place team, there's something inside of you that sparks when you get in those situations", Hamels said after the trade was announced. The switch-hitting Cabrera is having a huge year at the plate, batting.277 with 18 home runs, 58 RBIs and an.817 OPS.

The 34-year-old adds some help to a Cubs rotation that has underachieved this season, despite leading the National League Central.

With the departure of Cole Hamels, the Rangers will give minor leaguer Ariel Jurado a chance at the starting rotation.

"I think teams know he's better than he's pitched recently".

The Rangers did not discuss calling up Yohander Mendez, who started on Thursday for Double-A Frisco.

"He's been pretty good".
