According to a report from Ken Rosenthal, the Dodgers are “talking to the Cubs about a trade for both Ted Lilly and Ryan Theriot.” According to Rosenthal, Theriot would likely take over for Blake DeWitt at second.
Rosenthal said it is unknown at this time if a deal is close. The Dodgers “seemingly gained momentum in their quests to land Lilly and Theriot when some of the other Cubs possibilities faded on Thursday.”
This is not the first time rumors have suggested that Jim Hendry is trying to package players in a deal. Rosenthal speculated “the Cubs almost certainly would need to include cash to cover the nearly $5 million combined Lilly and Theriot are owed for the rest of the season”
