Cubs Send Pitcher to Red Sox as Comp for Epstein
CHICAGO (AP) -- The Cubs and the Red Sox have agreed on a deal that settles their dispute over what Boston should get after Theo Epstein left for Chicago.

The Cubs said Tuesday they are sending right-handed reliever Chris Carpenter and a player to be named to the Red Sox for a player to be named.

Epstein became Chicago's president of baseball operations and got a five-year, $18.5 million deal in October. The teams were not able to agree on compensation and submitted arguments to Commissioner Bud Selig.

The 26-year-old Carpenter made 42 relief appearances between Double-A Tennessee, Triple-A Iowa and the Cubs. He spent four years in the minors before seeing his first major league action last season, when he posted no record and a 2.79 ERA in 10 appearances.
