The 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs on Wednesday have traded their outfielder Jorge Soler to the Kansas City Royals in exchange for their right handed closer Wade Davis.Davis has pitched in the Major Leagues since 2009-2012 with the Tampa Bay Rays and from 2013-2016 with the Kansas City Royals.Since he played baseball in the Midwest region he is not that well known as one their best closers in recent Major League Baseball history outside of the Kansas City market area.The Cubs are not likely to retain the services of left handed closer Aroldis Chapman who goes by the nickname The Cuban Missile since he is currently a free agent and the Cubs are not likely to meet his salary demands to stay with the Cubs next year.Davis can enter the free agent market at the end of the 2017 Major League Baseball season that will be owed $10 million dollars to pitch for the Cubs in 2017.The Cubs are confident that Davis is he can stay healthy through the 2017 Major League Baseball season can propel the Cubs to another playoff run as the their closer.Soler, 25, will be a welcome addition to the Royals as an outfielder for the 2015 World Series champions even though his batting average of .238 with 12 home runs and 36 runs batted in playing in 86 games is nothing to write home about.Time will tell if the trade of both players will be a benefit for both teams or not.News source is NBCSports.com and the image is from Pinterst.com
