At least 10 teams are interested in acquiring Chicago Cubs' pitcher Ryan Dempster, making it more likely that he will be traded by baseball's trading deadline July 31, reports ESPN.com. 

10 teams have shown legitimate interest in acquiring Dempster's services for the remainder of the season, according to industry sources. Those clubs include the Los Angeles Dodgers, Cleveland Indians, Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox and Atlanta Braves.

Dempster's value is at a peak level as he has been on a roll lately. He has pitched 33 consecutive scoreless innings, including six shutout innings in a 4-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday.  He is 5-3 this season and leads the majors with a 1.86 ERA. Dempster does have 10-5 rights which allows him to veto any trade.
