Reliever Jesse Chavez joins Cubs after trade with Rangers

CHICAGO (AP) It's the ninth major league team for Jesse Chavez, so he's not too worried about fitting in with the Chicago Cubs.

Chavez was added to Chicago's roster as part of a flurry of moves before Saturday's day-night doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals. The veteran right-hander was acquired in a trade with Texas on Thursday for minor league pitcher Tyler Thomas.

"I've played with a couple guys in here," Chavez said. "Obviously, throughout the years you get to play each other and develop that on-field relationship a little bit. But now it's going to different, you know, developing that inside-clubhouse one."
