What starting pitchers would be available by trade?

Link goes to Yahoo! sports listing of all 2009 pitchers. The Cubs have some decent pitching prospects, with Andrew Cashner and Jay Jackson the highest rated, but with young major-leaguers like Marshall and Wells or bullpen depth like Caridad or Parker also in the system. If Jim Hendry were to deal for one starting pitcher, a number 2 or 3 level guy, who do you think would be available, and what would it take to get them? This might be now, during spring training, or mid-season. To be clear, I'm not advocating the Cubs make such a trade. But acquiring starting pitchers in trades is hard. I'm interested in everyone's thoughts about whether it is even possible this season, especially with the apparent salary constraints.
