Ryan Dempster, right now (maybe not next week) of the Chicago Cubs is currently in the midst of a 33 consecutive scoreless inning streak (Even crazier is he went on the DL and came back and continued his streak). This has only helped generate more interest in the right hander as ESPN Chicago's Bruce Levine notes that at least 10 teams are interested. Among those teams are the Dodgers, Yankees, Indians, Braves, Tigers and White Sox. The Cubs are also willing to pay a portion of the remaining $7mm that is owed to Dempster as they are looking for better prospects in return. Levine adds that the Cubs want young pitchers in any deal. There have been reports that have surfaced recently that the Dodgers already have a deal on the table for Dempster, but I am guessing the Cubs will wait to make sure they get the best possible return before dealing him. Dempster is 5-3 with a 1.86 ERA with a 7.3 k/9 and a 2.4 bb/9. Image taken by mootown and used under the Creative Common License Agreement.
