The Cubs' Carlos Zambrano and the Rays' Kyle Farnsworth were among the players placed on waivers yesterday, according to MLB.com's Peter Gammons (via Twitter). Teams have 48 business hours to make a claim on either player, giving them until Tuesday. This news doesn't necessarily mean that the Cubs and Rays are looking to deal Zambrano and Farnsworth, respectively. Hundreds of players are expected to hit the waiver wire in the month of August.
Earlier this week, both players were identified as August trade candidates by MLBTR's Tim Dierkes.
