Cubs Acquire Pitcher Joe Smith From Angels

The Los Angeles Angels have agreed to trade pitcher Joe Smith to the Chicago Cubs, according to ESPN's Buster Olney:

Chicago's goal leading up to the deadline was to upgrade their bullpen, and they certainly did just that. After acquiring Aroldis Chapman from the Yankees to be their closer, Smith has added further depth to their bullpen.

Smith has a 3.82 ERA and six saves in 38 appearances this season.
