Ryan Dempster close to going to Braves in deal

The Braves are close to obtaining star righthander Ryan Dempster from the Cubs, sources tell CBSSports.com.

The Braves have been looking to upgrade their rotation and were always in good position to land Dempster since they have a lot of top pitching prospects.

Dempster has a no-trade but word is he is willing to go to the Braves without demanding an extension.

Mark Bowman of MLB.com suggested the Cubs may be getting pitching prospect Randall Delgado back in return.
