The Rangers traded Ragans and Roni Cabrera to the Royals on Friday in exchange for Aroldis Chapman.

Ragans was a first-round pick (30th overall) in the 2016 MLB Draft, but he has posted an underwhelming 5.32 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 51:30 K:BB in 64.1 career major-league innings after undergoing two Tommy John surgeries. The 25-year-old left-hander saw his velocity spike by 3-4 mph this spring, but as yet his command isn't big-league caliber. Ragans will report to the Royals' Triple-A affiliate in Omaha.
