Theo Epstein compensation saga one step closer to completion

By C. Trent Rosecrans | Blogger
We are, thankfully, one step closer to ending the Theo Epstein compensation saga, as the Red Sox now have all the players they were scheduled to receive as Class A pitcher Aaron Kurcz was sent to Boston to complete the Cubs' side of the deal. The Red Sox, though, still have to send the Cubs a player to put this all behind us.

Last month Chicago sent Chris Carpenter to Boston, with players to be named scheduled to go both ways. Krucz, 21, was an 11th-round pick by the Cubs in 2010. The right-hander went 5-4 with a 3.28 ERA in 12 starts and 32 appearances for the Florida State League's Daytona Cubs. He struck out 91 batters in 82 1/3 innings, while walking 34. He had a WHIP of 1.227. He was 2-1 with a 2.05 ERA and nine save in 25 appearances at short-season Boise in 2010.

Chicago still has to send a player to San Diego as compensation for general manager Jed Hoyer.
