Dodgers, Cubs Still Discussing Ryan Dempster Deal

Ryan Dempster was supposed to be traded to the Atlanta Braves a week ago, but he exercised his 10-and-5 rights and is still a member of the Chicago Cubs, tentatively listed as the Cubs’ starter Tuesday against the Pirates.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have also expressed interest in Dempster, and that still could happen:

And, that deal, if it happens, could possibly include another highly-paid Cub:

Meanwhile, the Braves, who reportedly were going to send 22-year-old righthander Randall Delgado to the Cubs a week ago, are still interested in Dempster:

If the Cubs come back to the Braves, they might not get the same package that was in place before Dempster blocked a trade to Atlanta last week. In other words, there is no guarantee Randall Delgado would also be available in this package.

It seems likely Dempster will go somewhere, as he’s not likely to be re-signed by the Cubs and they’d like to get some sort of return for him.
