Rangers non-tendered RHP Jacob Brigham.

Tough break for Brigham, who was just reacquired from the Cubs last week. The 24-year-old right-hander compiled a 4.72 ERA while striking out a batter per inning at Double-A in 2012, and there are always organizations willing to gamble on a live arm such as his.

Rangers acquired RHP Jacob Brigham from the Cubs in exchange for RHP Barret Loux and a player to be named later.

Cubs acquired RHP Jacob Brigham and a player to be named later or cash considerations from the Rangers for C Geovany Soto and cash considerations.

Brigham, 24, has a 4.40 ERA over parts of six seasons in the minors, averaging 8.2 K/9 and 3.7 BB/9. The Rangers gave him another shot as a starter this season with Double-A Frisco, but he had a 4.21 ERA in 21 starts while allowing 19 home runs in 124 innings. With a plus-fastball and a quality breaking ball, his best shot to make it out is likely out of the bullpen.

Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com reports that the Rangers have dealt prospect right-hander Jacob Brigham to the Cubs as part of the Geovany Soto deal.

Brigham is considered a fringe prospect, but Chicago couldn't have expected much more for Soto after the year he has had. Texas added Brigham to the 40-man roster this winter to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. The former 6th-round pick has posted a 4.28 ERA in 124 innings as a starter for Double-A Frisco this year.

Rangers purchased the contract of RHP Jacob Brigham from Double-A Frisco.

The move protects him from December's Rule 5 Draft. Brigham began this season as a starter, but shifted to the bullpen in June and posted a 3.60 ERA and 46/22 K/BB ratio over 40 innings. The 23-year-old right-hander just may have found a home.
