According to Jon Heyman, Ryan Dempster has been traded to the Dodgers. More to come if it's confirmed.

Still no word on whether it's official or who may be coming to the Cubs, but I'm sure Dempster will be traded to the Dodgers at some point today.
UPDATE 2: On twitter there are rumors that this could be a larger deal and some are suggesting James Russell could be included.
If Dempster to Dodgers is multi-player package, James Russell might be another guy on the move.

UPDATE 3: George Offman confirms the deal is close and includes more than just Dempster.
UPDATE 4: Phil Rogers reportedly said on MLB Network that the Cubs really want Allen Webster.
