Found July 22, 2013 on Tireball.com:
PLAYERS: Matt Garza
TEAMS: Chicago Cubs
Matt Garza may be the best pitcher available via the trade market but his next start is expected to come with his current team – the Chicago Cubs. “I’d say 100 percent he’s going to be pitching,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum told Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com. “If we get a phone call and something changes, that’s the way it is.” A deal sending Garza to the Texas Rangers fell though over the weekend after the Cubs had concerns about the medical files of one of the prospects they would receive in return. No progress has been made in a trade to Texas but Oakland, Boston, Arizona, St. Louis and Cleveland have all been mentioned as possible destinations for the right handed Garza. In 2013 the 29-year-old Garza has made 11 starts and owns a 3.17 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP.
