  SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Los Angeles Angels and Chicago Cubs included a pair of big names in a minor league trade.

The Angels dealt first baseman Matt Scioscia, the son of manager Mike Scioscia, to the Cubs on Thursday for outfielder Trevor Gretzky, the son of hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky.

The Cubs selected Gretzky in the seventh round of the 2011 amateur draft; the younger Scioscia was picked in the 45th round the same year out of Notre Dame.

Scioscia, 25, has hit .222 with three home runs and 46 RBIs in three minor league seasons, never advancing past Class A. He batted .194 with three clubs last year.

Gretzky, 21, hit a combined .274 with a home run and eight RBIs in 2013 for Class A Boise and Kane County last year.
