Lukewarm Stove: Ryan Theriot Believes He’ll Be Traded Today

Chicago Cubs

Chicago Cubs second baseman Ryan Theriot told his friends yesterday that he expected to be traded by the Cubs today, according to Gordon Wittenmyer.

Theriot, who is making $2.6 million this year, is under team control through 2011, but given his salary and lack of correlative performance, he’s a non-tender candidate. Don’t expect the Cubs to get a great return if, in fact, they deal Theriot – of course, Ken Rosenthal has mentioned Theriot somehow netting Kelly Johnson, so I guess you never know.
