Ryan Dempster Trade: Braves, Cubs Still Working On Dempster Trade

According to David Kaplan of CSN Chicago and WGN Radio, the Chicago Cubs have not yet come to terms with the Atlanta Braves for the Dempster trade:

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:

Dempster later refuted claims that his Twitter account had been hacked, while his wife refuted claims that she knew anything about the trade process.
