3/15 Kurcz to Red Sox
The Cubs will send Minor League pitcher Aaron Kurcz to the Red Sox to complete their part of the compensation package for Theo Epstein. Kurcz was a 10th round pick in 2010 and was 5-4 with a 3.28 ERA in 32 games last season with Class A Daytona. He struck out 139 over 109 2/3 innings and walked 45. The Cubs earlier sent pitcher Chris Carpenter to the Red Sox, and at that time, the two teams also agreed to exchange Minor League players.
