The Cubs continued adding to their bullpen depth on Wednesday, dealing for left-handed pitcher Rex Brothers. The 27-year-old is 16-11 with 61 holds, 20 saves and a 3.42 ERA in 286 career appearances.
Starlin Castro's name has popped up in trade rumors for more than a year, but a report has the Cubs infielder in a possible deal for Brett Gardner of the New York Yankees.
The Cubs added four players to their 40-man roster on Friday, with catcher Willson Contreras being the headliner.
