Confirmed Ryan Dempster is coming to the Braves.Still trying to confirm details but Delgado could be on the other end of the deal

No word yet on who is coming, but Randall Delgado would be a pretty decent return for Ryan Dempster. This post will be updated as more information is available.
UPDATE: still not sure who it is, but Delgado was the 46th ranked prospect by Baseball America entering the season. Sickels had him rated as a B+ prospect. He had dropped out of BA's top 50 since he was no longer a prospect. If this is what the Cubs get, it's hard to complain about this trade. I'm sure someone will though.
UPDATE 3: MLB.com is confirming that Dempster has been traded, but they also don't know what the Cubs are getting in return.
UPDATE 4: Keith Law is reporting that Delgado is included in the deal.
Filed to ESPN – if the Dempster trade is completed, Randall Delgado is in it, as well as something to balance the money

You gotta like the deal.
