Chicago Cubs: Bullpen

Frasor drawing interest: In the wake of setup man Angel Guzman's
season-ending shoulder injury
, ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick checks in to report that the Cubs have inquired about the availability of Toronto's Jason Frasor. As
we told you last week
, Frasor is in a three-headed competition for the closer role, so the Blue Jays do have a surplus from which to trade -- and Frasor makes sense, given that he's eligible for free agency after the season.

If Chicago decides to stay in-house, the likely replacements for Guzman's setup services are Esmailin Caridad or Jeff Samardzija.
