Jeremy Hermida drawing interest of the Cubs

The Cubs have Jeremy Hermida on their mind.

So don't count on the Cubs depleting their trading or payroll resources to land Peavy when, as Piniella said Wednesday, the organization is in ''total agreement'' on pursuing a middle-of-the-order left-handed bat and more ''athleticism.''

Free agent Raul Ibanez, 36, is also in the Cubs' sights after a 23-homer, 110-RBI season with Seattle, along with Marlins outfielder Jeremy Hermida (.249, 17 homers, 61 RBI).
