The Cubs on Monday acquired minor-league pitcher Carlos Guzman from the Detroit Tigers for infielder Zach McKinstry.

Guzman, a 24-year-old right-hander, started 23 games last seasons in High-A West Michigan and AA Erie. He struck out 90 and walked 34 with an ERA of 4.11.


Guzman's last four outings for West Michigan were strong, giving up just 1 earned run in 22 innings of work.

McKinstry was acquired from the Dodgers last July in a trade that sent reliever Chris Martin to Los Angeles.

In 47 games with the Cubs, McKinstry hit .206/.272/.361 with 4 home runs and 12 RBI.
