Rumor Roundup on the Day Before the Deadline

The Major League Baseball trade deadline is tomorrow at 3pm Central Time. The next two days we will have all the action covered right here on Everything Cubs Blog. Let's take a look at the latest from the rumor mill!

  • David O'Brien says that Marlon Byrd is on the Braves' radar.

  • Jim Hendry does not think that the Cubs need a complete overhaul, according to Gordon Wittenmyer.

  • Aramis Ramirez still wants to stay with the Cubs the rest of the season. He does not plan to waive his no trade clause. It appears that any deal involving Ramirez is highly unlikely.

  • Bruce Levine reports that a major deadline deal is unlikely for the Cubs.

  • Carlos Pena is drawing interest, but the Cubs are hesitant to deal him because he may be in their plans for next season.

  • In a non-trade related note- Andrew Cashner will throw off a mound in Mesa today. This will be the first time he has done so since May 16. He could return in a month.

That's it for now, but I'll keep you posted throughout the rest of the week!
