MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Two Myrtle Beach Pelican players were involved in a big trade between the Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees on Monday that sent hard throwing closer Aroldis Chapman to Chicago.

Outfielder Rashad Crawford and shortstop Gleyber Torres were sent to the Yankees’ minor league system, along with two other prospects. Crawford hit .255 with 18 doubles so far this year. Torres was second on the Pelicans with a .275 average and nine home runs, and also led Myrtle Beach with 62 runs.

Chapman missed the first 29 games of the year for breaking the MLB’s domestic violence policy. He has a 2.01 ERA and 20 saves in 2016.

As of Monday, the Cubs are an MLB-best 59-38 this year. The Pelicans beat the Carolina Mudcats on Monday night to improve to 17-14 in the second half of the Carolina League season (53-48 overall).
