Sox May Be In On Cubs RHP Jeff Samardzija

Multiple reports suggest that the Cubs might unload yet another of their starters (after trading Matt Garza) by offering up big RHP Jeff Samardzija. Word is that Samardzija would fetch at least two top prospects from any organization seeking him—so it will be interesting to see if BenCher bites on this after losing out on the prospect-free transaction of Cuban defector Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez to the Phillies. In addition to Boston, the Braves and Diamondbacks have shown interest. The 28-year old, 6'5" Samardzija has a 6-9 record this year with the Cubbies—sporting a respectable 3.94 ERA.
