Buster Olney reports the Cubs are 1 among teams interested in P John Smoltz. Smoltz was recently DFA by the Red Sox. When Smoltz is release I will see if I can sign him to a minor league deal and pitch out of the bullpen.
Aramis Ramirez is going to see teams doctors today as he is out again tonight.
The Cubs sent P Jeff Stevens back to Triple A Iowa again and called up P Esmailin Caridad from Triple A Iowa. Caridad was added to the Cubs 40 man roster and is wearing number 33.
I will keep you posted.
