The Cubs are actively talking with the Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, Cleveland Indians, and the Los Angeles Dodgers about the starter, and may be talking with the Baltimore Orioles and more of the NL West teams as well, according to Olney. Olney also stated that Garza is considered "the belle of the ball" currently on the trade market.
Garza started for the Cubs on Wednesday, tossing eight strong innings against the Oakland Athletics. The starter is 3-0 with a 0.90 ERA over his last four starts, reestablishing himself as the top starting pitcher currently available after starting the season on the DL.
Garza is scheduled to pitch for the Cubs on Monday against the Chicago White Sox.
