Cubs right-handed starter Rich Harden and right-handed reliever Aaron Heilman have reportedly been claimed off waivers.

FOXSports.com cited Major League sources Thursday as saying a National League team was awarded the claim on Heilman. The claiming team on Harden was not known, but presumably he did not get through the NL, either. Players must pass through their own league first before being exposed on waivers to teams in the other league.

The Cubs will have until Monday to work out trades, allow Harden and Heilman to depart on claims, or pull them back them from waivers. Harden is 3-1 with a 1.80 ERA in eight starts since the All-Star break.

The Giants, Rockies and Dodgers all are interested in adding starting pitching, and Harden would be an attractive pickup.

Harden is 8-7 with a 3.99 ERA overall in 22 starts, while Heilman is 2-3 with a 4.55 ERA.

The Cubs began Thursday's play nine games behind the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central.
