On August 28, 1916, the Giants traded Doyle and Herb Hunter to the Cubs for Heinie Zimmerman and Mickey Doolan. The trade allowed manager John McGraw to shift Buck Herzog to second base and put Zimmerman at the hot corner. Less than two years later, in January of 1918, McGraw reacquired Doyle, sending Herzog to the Braves.
