Cubs get closer Wade Davis from Royals for OF Jorge Soler

OXON HILL, Md. (AP) Wade Davis already had closed out a World Series. And that was part of his appeal for the Chicago Cubs.

In a trade between the last two champions, the Cubs acquired the All-Star reliever from the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday for outfielder Jorge Soler. Davis immediately takes over the spot held by Aroldis Chapman, who became a free agent after the Cubs won their first title since 1908.

"Wade is going to pitch the ninth inning," Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said.
