Cubs | Discussing deal for Rick Porcello?

The Chicago Cubs and Detroit Tigers are reportedly discussing a deal that would send SP Rick Porcello to Chicago. The Tigers are trying to get the Baltimore Orioles involved in this deal in order to acquire SS J.J. Hardy, and they don't think the Cubs have the necessary players to make it a two-team trade. In this three-team deal, the Cubs would have to send pitching Baltimore's way. However, the O's probably aren't very motivated to get rid of Hardy unless they are overwhelmed in a trade. Baltimore isn't prepared to move 3B Manny Machado to shortstop this season. The Orioles are also interested in adding Porcello.
