Cubs that are available

The Chicago Tribune's Dave van Dyck lists Kevin Mench as a player on the Cubs' "shopping list," and has this item on available Cubs players:

According to a well-informed source, these are the choices of names Hendry is giving such teams as the Marlins, Reds and Devil Rays, all of whom are seeking young, inexpensive players:

  • Sergio Mitre, who spent part of last season with the Cubs and has shown flashes of being very good.
  • Jerome Williams, obtained last season for LaTroy Hawkins and who also has shown signs of being good. He was 6-10 with a 4.26 ERA for the Giants and Cubs last season.
  • Todd Wellemeyer, who appeared mostly in relief with the Cubs last season but has been a starter in the minors.
  • Ricky Nolasco, a promising Double-A pitcher considered a good prospect.
Williams and Mitre are both guys who could step into the Ranger rotation right now and contribute.  I'd like to see either, or both, involved in a Mench or Soriano to Chicago deal.
