Dempster traded to Texas
Back where he started
The time stamp on this story from MLB Trade Rumors is 2 minutes before the non-waiver trade deadline.
Ryan Dempster is joining Geo Soto in Texas. The Cubs will get two Class A players in exchange, reportedly a pitcher and a position player.
Dempster began his career when the Rangers drafted him in 1995, but may not stay there beyond September (or October), since he’ll be a free agent at the end of this season.
The Cubs website shows that “TBD” will be starting tonight against the Pirates.
John Arguello over at Cubs Den has a quick scouting report on the new Cubs prospects, Kyle Hendricks and Christian Villanueva.
