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.

10/9 No-hitter in Mesa, AZ

It won’t get the headlines that Roy Halladay’s no-hitter did in the NLDS, but on Saturday at Fitch Park in Mesa, five Cubs Minor League pitchers combined for a no-no against the Angels in an Instructional League game. Aaron Kurcz, Dustin Fitzgerald, Casey Harman, Robinson Lopez and Kevin Rhoderick held the Angels hitless. Trouble is, the Cubs couldn’t muster much either and the game ended in a scoreless tie.
