The Cubs and the Rangers have finally finalized the 'player to be named later' in the July 27 trade for Cole Hamels.

The Rangers will reportedly acquire outfielder Alexander Ovailes who has been playing in the Dominican Summer League and is only 17 years old. He was signed by the Cubs out of the Dominican Republic during last year's international signing period.

In 2018, he is hitting .316 with four doubles, eight steals, and eight RBIs in 21 games.

He is a lefty that had surgery last month to remove hamate bone (wrist).

In total, the Cubs gave up righty Eddie Butler, righty Rollie Lacy, and Ovailes to acquire the former-All star pitcher.

Hamels has found the fountain of youth since joining the Cubs with a 2-0 record with a 1.00 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 18 innings in 3 starts.
