ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Cubs don't mind hanging onto Nate Schierholtz if they don't get an offer they like.

Chicago is in a nice position with Schierholtz. They inked the outfielder to a cheap one-year, $2.25 million contract over the winter and have been rewarded with a .272/.332/.517 slash line with 14 home runs and 43 RBI in 89 games. If they don't appreciate what the market will bear for Schierholtz, Chicago will simply keep him. Schierholtz is under team control through next season.
