Cubs Put In Claim For Shannon Stewart

UPDATE: The San Francisco Chronicle verifies the claim.  Stewart has mixed feelings about it.

UPDATE 2: Buster Olney says has heard that the two sides will not be able to work out a trade.

UPDATE 3: Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune says many teams put in a claim for Stewart, and the winner is not yet known.

Several people have emailed me regarding a Bruce Levine report today on ESPN 1000.  It seems the Cubs may have won a waiver claim on Shannon Stewart, meaning the two teams have 48.5 hours to work out a trade.

The 33 year-old outfielder is having a solid year by his standards and has managed to stay healthy.  But with a .401 SLG, he doesn't add much pop to the currently punchless Cubs squad.  I would imagine Stewart will be a Type B free agent, lessening the quality of the player going to Oakland in return.
