Hot Stove Cubbies reports that his source said the Cubs almost traded for 2B Brian Roberts of the O's. The Cubs would of sent Jeff Samardzija, Hak-Ju Lee, Jake Fox, Alex Maestri and Mike Fontenot with the Cubs getting speedster Brian Roberts, a minor leaguer and the O's would of payed 20 million of his contract. Samardzija would of waive his no trade cause, both GM's have agreed to the trade but Peter Angels veto the trade. I have no clue why, he should get yelled at for that.
Geovany Soto will rehab for Double A on Monday and is expected to return Wednesday.
Tom Gorzolanny was with the Cubs today throwing in a bullpen session and is expected to start Tuesday.
I will keep you posted.
