It came down to the wire at the trade deadline, but the Cubs got their right-handed bat in Nicholas Castellanos:

The Cubs traded AA starter Alex Lange (a 2017 first-round pick) and High-A starter Paul Richan (a 2018 second-round pick) to the Tigers to complete the deal at the last minute.

Castellanos has a .790 OPS and 106 wRC+ this season with a 1.026 OPS vs. lefties. More to come on Castellanos as the day progresses.
