Rangers get Cubs ace Ryan Dempster

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Texas Rangers have obtained Ryan Dempster from the Chicago Cubs, a move to fortify their rotation for the stretch run.

The AL West leaders sent minor leaguer infielder Christian Villanueva and pitcher Kyle Hendricks to Chicago as part of Tuesday's deal.

Dempster, who had power to block deals, had refused to approve a trade to Atlanta last week. The 35-year-old right-hander was 5-5 with a 2.25 ERA in 16 games for the Cubs and can become a free agent after the season.
