Cubs Welcome Trachsel Back

Jim Callis -

Steve Trachsel broke into the majors with the Cubs and won 60 games for Chicago from 1993-99. Now he's coming home again, as the Cubs added him for the stretch drive in a Thursday trade with the Orioles. In return, Baltimore received a pair of Triple-A players, third baseman/outfielder Scott Moore and righthander Rocky Cherry. Nov. 5 update: The deal had a condition that provided Baltimore with a third prospect if Chicago made the playoffs, so the Cubs sent righthander Jake Renshaw to the Orioles as well.
