Assignment: Chicago?

Danny Graves, late of the Reds, and Eli Marrero, Kansas City, have both recently been "designated for assignment" by their clubs, and speculation has resulted among Cub fans about the utility of either being signed by GM Jim Hendry after their release.

The Daily Southtown article linked here says the Cubs are mildly interested in both, but that Marrero might require a trade before his 10-day DFA period is up, due to higher demand. Graves' 10-day period has passed as of today.
