Cubs | Jake Arrieta, Pedro Strop acquired

The Chicago Cubs have acquired SP Jake Arrieta and RP Pedro Strop from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for SP Scott Feldman and C/1B Steve Clevenger.

Fantasy Tip: Arrieta still has quite a bit of talent, and the O's weren't eager to part with him, but they realized he was a decent bargaining chip. His transition to the NL will be interesting to watch, so fantasy owners should monitor him. Strop has really struggled this year, but he has the stuff to be a factor in the late innings, something to keep in mind in case the Cubs deal Kevin Gregg.
