ARRIVALS
C Henry Blanco (free agent from Minnesota), LHP Stephen Randolph (trade with Arizona).

DEPARTURES
RHP Matt Clement (free agent to Boston), Kent Mercker (free agent to Cincinnati), Moises Alou (free agent to San Francisco), Ramon Martinez (free agent to Detroit), Mark Grudzielanek (free agent to St. Louis), Paul Bako (free agent to Los Angeles), OF Ben Grieve (free agent, signed with Pittsburgh).

BIGGEST NEEDS
With the shoulder injury to Joe Borowski and the struggles of LaTroy Hawkins (nine blown saves), the Cubs are keeping an eye open for a reliable closer for 2005. Ryan Dempster might get a tryout in spring training.

FREE AGENTS
OF Tom Goodwin.

IN LIMBO
RF Sammy Sosa appears headed for Baltimore in a deal for 2B/OF Jerry Hairston and two minor leaguers.

MEDICAL WATCH
RHP Joe Borowski (partially torn right rotator cuff) hopes that a few months off will help strengthen his arm for 2005. Surgery was not needed for the shoulder, but he did undergo arthroscopic surgery to clean out his left knee.
