As part of the deal, Texas will send Chicago $2,862,903 (all dollars U.S.) to cover a portion of the $7,862,903 remaining in Hamels' $22.5-million salary this year. He played for the Phillies from 2006 to 2015 and won a World Series, a World Series MVP and an NLCS MVP with them in 2008.
The 34-year-old adds some help to a Cubs rotation that has underachieved this season, despite leading the National League Central.
Hamels, who had been scheduled to start for Texas on Saturday in Houston, said he wasn't sure yet when he would make his first start for Chicago. He is 1-7 with a 6.41 ERA and an opponents' OPS of.911 at the Rangers' hitter-friendly Globe Life Park - and has an extensive postseason pedigree.

It was the third time in four July games he allowed seven runs, including at Baltimore when he got only two outs on 41 pitches on a day four runs were unearned. He's a great competitor, got good stuff. The Cubs also received cash considerations from the Rangers.
Chicago Cubs pitcher Yu Darvish posted a photo on his Instagram Thursday, saying that he couldn't wait to see Hamels. Which will nearly certainly be bought out given that the option would pay Hamels $20 million next year.
The teams agreed to the trade Thursday, pending physicals for the players involved, the sources said. Among starting pitchers with at least 90 innings this year, Chatwood's 19.4% walk rate leads the league ... by almost SIX PERCENTAGE POINTS.
