MILWAUKEE (AP) The Chicago Cubs got some help for their bullpen Friday, acquiring Tommy Hunter from the Baltimore Orioles for outfielder Junior Lake.
Hunter was 2 -2 with a 3.63 ERA in 39 appearances for Baltimore this season. The 29-year-old right-hander is 44-33 with a 4.28 ERA in eight seasons with Texas and the Orioles. He won 13 games as a starter with the Rangers in 2010 and was traded to Baltimore the following season.
Since moving into a full-time bullpen role with Baltimore in 2013, Hunter is 11-9 with 15 saves and a 3.05 ERA.
