Though Hendry insists the relatively minor deal was not the warmup act to a splashier trade, it does beef up the Cubs' bullpen, giving them three lefties in Cotts, Will Ohman and Scott Eyre. That could put the Cubs in a better bargaining position to deal with the Cleveland Indians, who are dangling right-handed starter Jake Westbrook. The Indians, who might be ready to put young right-hander Fausto Carmona in their rotation, are in search of relief help and a shortstop -- Ronny Cedeno is certainly available -- to back up starter Jhonny Peralta. The Indians are listening to offers for Westbrook or veteran Paul Byrd. Westbrook, 29, is appealing because he will earn $6.1 million and is a top-of-the-rotation pitcher who went 15-10 with a 4.17 ERA in 32 starts last season.
