The Chicago Cubs acquired right-handed pitcher Neil Ramirez from the Texas Rangers as the player to be named later in the deal that sent pitcher Matt Garza to Texas last month.

The Cubs claimed Ramirez off waivers and then the clubs decided he would be the player to finish the deal that brought pitchers Justin Grimm and CJ Edwards to Chicago along with infielder Mike Olt.

Ramirez, 24, was 9-3 with a 3.84 ERA with Double-A Frisco this season. The Cubs assigned him to Double-A Tennessee.
