Cubs trade Wellemeyer to Marlins

...get minor league pitchers Lincoln Holdzkom and Zach McCormack..they don't look all that hot..both single A guys...Holdzkom is 24 and has had Tommy John surgery..McCormack is also 24 and is left handed. I guess the deal is better than nothing. Holdzkom had the lower era despite the surgery. With Welley struggling this spring, I guess it made it tough to get much for him. Maybe one of these 2 will pan out. It would have been nice to get a position player prospect though since the Cubs are so thin there. Any thoughts?
