Dodgers Waiting on Cubs

With Ryan Dempster scheduled to start Friday, the Dodgers are waiting on the Cubs for a decision on whether to deal the right-hander to Los Angeles. The Dodgers have made an offer, but won’t get in a bidding war because they also still need offense (preferably a corner infielder) even more than they need Dempster. And the farm system is thin in the kind of prospects needed to land All-Star caliber players like Dempster, San Diego third baseman Chase Headley, Shane Victorino, Aramis Ramirez, Michael Cuddyer or Jimmy Rollins. Dempster will be a free agent after the season and can veto a deal, but is expected to accept a trade to the Dodgers, where he will be reunited with buddy Ted Lilly. — Ken Gurnick
