The defending World Series champions acquired left-handed starter Jose Quintana from the White Sox on Thursday in a major trade between crosstown rivals that could shake up the NL Central race.

He won a career-high 13 games last season with a personal-best 3.20 ERA while making his first All-Star team and is 50-54 with a 3.51 ERA since debuting with the White Sox in 2012.

White Sox General Manager Rick Hahn said letting him go was a difficult choice for the rebuilding team.

He said the White Sox asked for reigning NL MVP Bryant when he inquired about a deal for All-Star pitcher Chris Sale in the offseason.

Though they paid a high price in prospects, the Cubs didn't have to include any current major leaguers to get Quintana.
