The Cubs made a deal with the Brewers after the Rule 5 draft acquiring lefty Caleb Smith. Milwaukee selected Smith from the Yankees during the draft so Smith has to be on the Cubs 25 man roster for the entire season. He was a 14th round pick in 2013 and will make the jump from Double-A to the big leagues. He'll be the Cubs long man taking Mike Montgomery's role. He can also be a spot starter compiling a 3.41 ERA in 4 minor league seasons. If things don't work he can be sent back to NY but not to the minors.
