Report: Chicago Cubs acquire RHP Jacob Turner from Marlins

Two days after the Chicago Cubs reportedly claimed Miami Marlins starting pitcher Jacob Turner on waivers, the two clubs have worked out a trade, tweets ESPN’s Keith Law.

Right-handers Tyler Bremer and Jose Arias will go to Miami, reported ESPN Chicago’s Jesse Rodgers.

Bremer was 5-1 with a 2.43 ERA in 28 games while Arias was a reliever for Kane County.

The teams had 48 hours to agree on a deal following the Cubs claim.

Turner, 23, struggled this season, posting a 5.97 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP in 78 1/3 innings over 20 appearances for the Marlins.

The ninth-overall pick in 2009 was traded by the Detroit Tigers to the Marlins in 2012 in the deal that brought starter Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante to Detroit.

In a corresponding move, the Cubs designated Ryan Kalish for assignment.
