(WSCR) After the flurry of activity from the Cubs’ brass last night, Theo Epstein and Co. aren’t quite finished yet.
According to Comcast Sportsnets’ David Kaplan, the Yankees, Dodgers and Rangers are all in play for Ryan Dempster.
Kaplan reports the 35-year-old Dempster would approve a trade to any of the three teams, if a deal can be worked out.
“Texas is serious about adding a starter and Dempster isn’t as expensive to trade for as Garza would be, but after finishing as runners-up in the last two World Series and seeing the Angels add Zach Greinke, Texas management has decided to make a run at adding pitching, sources told Kaplan. “However, with three teams seriously involved, it won’t be cheap to acquire him even though it is potentially a three-month rental.”
