Braves acquire Ryan Dempster ***updated***

No word yet on who is coming, but Randall Delgado would be a pretty decent return for Ryan Dempster. This post will be updated as more information is available. 

UPDATE: still not sure who it is, but Delgado was the 46th ranked prospect by Baseball America entering the season. Sickels had him rated as a B+ prospect. He had dropped out of BA's top 50 since he was no longer a prospect. If this is what the Cubs get, it's hard to complain about this trade. I'm sure someone will though.

UPDATE 2: Delgado was ranked 3rd in the Braves organization by Baseball America entering 2012 and he was also 3rd in Sickels' ratings

UPDATE 3: MLB.com is confirming that Dempster has been traded, but they also don't know what the Cubs are getting in return.

UPDATE 4: Keith Law is reporting that Delgado is included in the deal.

You gotta like the deal.
