The Miami Marlins have agreed to trade Dan Haren to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for two minor league prospects, the team announced.

The deal was first reported by Gordon Wittenmeyer of the Chicago Sun-Times

The Cubs will send two Double A prospects, pitcher Ivan Pineyro and infielder Elliot Soto to Miami.

Haren, 34, holds a 7-7 record with a 3.42 ERA and 1.09 in 21 starts. The Marlins signed the righthander to a two-year deal in the offseason. He is expected to earn $10.2 million this year.

In 13 major league seasons, Haren, a three-time All-Star, has a 149-129 record with a 3.75 ERA and 1.18 WHIP.

Pineyro, a 23-year-old righthander, has a 3.69 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 19 starts. Soto, 25, is batting .275 with a .702 OPS.

The Cubs are 54-47 and sit two games out of a wild card berth. Miami, 42-60, is fourth in the National League East.
