CHICAGO -- The Cubs acquired speedster Terrance Gore from the Royals for cash considerations on Wednesday.
The 27-year-old has yet to appear in the Majors this season, but in 49 career games, Gore has swiped 21 bases. Known for his speed, Gore is also seeking his first career big league hit as he's gone 0-for-11.
In 67 games at Triple-A Omaha this season, Gore is hitting .211/.304/.254 with 16 stolen bases.
Gore, 27, would give the Cubs some speed, which he provided in the postseason for the Royals in 2014 and '15. By being in the Cubs' organization before Aug. 31, he is eligible for the postseason roster.
