As I reported several minutes ago, deal is not done. Per a great source Cubs have NOT received any approval from Dempster to approve trade.— David Kaplan (@thekapman) July 23, 2012
The Braves had reportedly acquired SP Ryan Dempster from the Chicago Cubs on Monday, but it appears the reports were premature as the teams had not finished the terms, and Ryan Dempster has not yet given his approval of the trade.
The Twitter account for his charity group, the Dempster Foundation, also refuted the claims of a consummated trade:
THERE IS NO TRADE dont know where this info came from!— Dempster Foundation (@RyanDempsterFDN) July 23, 2012
