Ryan Dempster has a 15.43 ERA after his first start in the AL.

Ryan Dempster, the pitcher who declined to quickly accept a trade to the Braves and ended up being dealt by the Chicago Cubs to the Texas Rangers, allowed eight earned runs in 4 2/3 innings in his first start for his new team Thursday night.

Dempster allowed nine hits, walked three and struck out six against the Angels.

Atlanta reportedly had agreed to a deal that would send pitching prospect Randall Delgado to Chicago, but as a major league veteran of 10 years and the last five with the same team, Dempster had the right to veto any deal.

The Braves instead traded other prospects for Cubs pitcher Paul Maholm, who will make his debut for Atlanta Saturday against the Astros.
