Ryan Dempster Traded To Texas Rangers, According To Reports

Ryan Dempster appears to be headed from the Chicago Cubs to to the Texas Rangers, according to various "breaking news" Tweets:

If the trade is legit - with no word yet as to what the Cubs would receive, although they've stated previously they're in the market for young minor league pitchers as the franchise begins a total overhaul - it would strengthen Texas' World Series chances even more.

The two clubs completed a trade on Monday to move backup catcher Geovany Soto to Texas for minor league pitcher Jacob Brigham.

Dempster was previously named in a potential trade with the Atlanta Braves, but the pitcher blocked the deal.
