Chicago Cubs & Cincinnati Reds Make Trade

The Chicago Cubs have made a move to enhance their pitching depth by acquiring right-hander Jake Wong from the Cincinnati Reds.

Wong's brief stint last season included a challenging outing against the Baltimore Orioles, where he gave up three runs over three innings.

However, Wong's potential has been evident in his performances at lower levels, notably with the Louisville Bats and AA-Chattanooga, where he showed signs of promise and areas for development at times.

Wong's integration into the Cubs' system presents a fresh opportunity for him to refine his skills and achieve greater consistency.

For his minor-league career, the 27-year-old holds a 4.50 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, with 300 strikeouts across 307.2 innings and 94 appearances (54 starts).

With a track record that includes valuable minor league experiences and brief major league exposure, Wong adds depth to the Cubs' pitching options. Photo Credit: David Banks-USA TODAY Sports
