Cubs acquire Quintana in blockbuster trade with White Sox - MLB Schedule

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs have acquired ace Jose Quintana from the White Sox in a major trade between crosstown rivals.

Trailing Milwaukee by 5 1/2 games at 43-45, the defending champions shook things up in a big way on Thursday by acquiring Quintana, a 2016 All-Star. In exchange, the Cubs sent four prospects to the White Sox — outfielder Eloy Jimenez, right-handed pitcher Dylan Cease, and infielders Matt Rose and Bryant Flete.

Quintana is 4-8 with a 4.49 ERA in 18 starts this season. He went 13-12 with a 3.20 ERA last year and made his first All-Star team.

In other MLB news:

— Chicago White Sox reliever Nate Jones has undergone season-ending arm surgery. Sidelined since April 28 because of inflammation in his right elbow, he experienced discomfort during a throwing session last week.

— The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired left-handed reliever Tyler Webb from the New York Yankees for minor league first baseman Garrett Cooper. Webb was assigned to Triple-A following the trade. He had a 4.50 ERA in seven appearances this year season with the Yankees without recording a decision. Cooper was batting .366 with 17 homers and 82 RBIs at Triple-A.

— The Washington Nationals say they've "won a major legal victory." An appeals court has ruled that a committee of Major League Baseball owners and executives can determine the amount of rights fees the Nationals can earn from television broadcasts of their games. It's the latest chapter in a long dispute between the Nationals and the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network, which is controlled by the Baltimore Orioles. In 2015, a New York judge threw out an arbitration decision that said the network owed the Nationals about $298 million for the team's 2012-16 television rights.

— The Tampa Bay Rays have placed injured outfielder Colby Rasmus on the restricted list after the player's decision to 'step away from baseball. The team did not provide specifics, instead saying in a brief statement that the club fully supports the player deciding to leave. Respecting the privacy of Colby and his family, the Rays say they will have no further comment. Rasmus, who signed with Tampa Bay as a free agent last winter, had been on the 10-day disabled list since June 23 with left hip tendinitis.
