UPDATE 12:20 PM
WFAN is reporting that Aaron Heilman of the Seattle Mariners, has been traded to the Chicago Cubs for Ronny Cedeno.
Wow, that west coast trip didn’t last long… This can’t be good for Heilman’s psyche…
ESPN 1000 Radio, is reporting that the Chicago Cubs are pursuing a trade that might land them former Met Aaron Heilman in return for Ronny Cedeno.
The Cubs also continue to pursue Seattle pitcher Aaron Heilman. The Mariners are looking for middle infield help, possibly switching one of their current guys to first base next year. They are known to have interest in Ronny Cedeno, who is out of options. Heilman, a former Met, would be exactly the swingman that Piniella could use as a fifth starter or a sixth and seventh inning middle reliever. If the Cubs aren’t able to revisit the Peavy trade talks, we’ll reiterate that left-hander Randy Wolf is on their radar screen. The Cubs tried to sign Wolf in 2006 before he opted to sign a deal with the Dodgers.
The Cubs sure have been busy this off season…
I wonder if they are going to restart trade talks with San Diego for Jake Peavy now that they have new owners?
MLBTR mentions that Ken Rosenthal had earlier reported that the Mariners were willing to trade Heilman.
