The Chicago Cubs have acquired Eddie Butler and the bonus money for the No. 94 international signing slot from the Colorado Rockies in exchange for James Farris and bonus pool money for slot No. 28.
Slot No. 94 carries a $235,200 value, while slot No. 28 is worth $563,700.
Butler, a 2012 supplemental first-round pick, could be another option for Chicago's starting rotation. He has spent parts of the last three seasons with the Rockies, posting a 6-16 record and 6.50 ERA in 36 appearances (28 starts).
