Cubs Hot Stove 2011: Chicago Spoke With C.J. Wilson's Agent, According To Report

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Chicago Cubs have spoken with the agent for free agent left-hander C.J. Wilson, saying the club is trying to get a feel for the amount of money it would take to sign Wilson. The Sun-Times' Joe Cowley corroborated Rosenthal's report on the preliminary nature of the discussion:

Cubs have been talking to a lot of people today, but more first-round jabs as they try and get a feel on the market.
So it looks like the Cubs aren't ready to make an offer just yet, but they are keeping tabs on the situation. Wilson is one of the more highly sought-after players on the free agent market this season; he's coming off a 2011 season in which he won 16 games and posted a 2.94 ERA.
