MLB: Texas Rangers Acquire RHP Matt Garza from Chicago Cubs

Jul 22 2013, 10:59pm CDT | by

The Texas Rangers acquired Matt Garza from the Chicago Cubs on Monday for several minor-league prospects and one or two more players to be named later.

Matt Garza will now pitch for the Texas Rangers

According to Evan Grant of the Dallas News, Garza will be added to the Rangers' starting rotation. In return, the Rangers are sending third baseman Mike Olt, pitcher C.J. Edwards, pitcher Justin Grimm and a player to be named later. 

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels confirms one or two more players could be added to complete the deal, per the Chicago Tribune's Paul Sullivan. 

"It could be one, it could be two. Depending on who's selected. That's why both teams announced it (differently), to make the two teams look a little better. We announced one. They announced two. It could be either way, depending on Door A or Door B."

Daniels marveled at Garza's talent and him being the best pitcher on the market. 

"He's an extremely talented pitcher. He's had success in the toughest divisions and the biggest stages. He was throwing the ball as well as anybody right now. He has a power repertoire, who is something that's a little different from what we've got. And he was available. 

"He was in our opinion the best guy on the market, and we wanted to go out and make a push to get him."

Garza's postseason experience and his successful track record in the American League from 2006-2010 with the Minnesota Twins and Tampa Bay Rays should help the Rangers. 

Sullivan emphasizes the Chicago Cubs "had no choice but to deal Garza" who was to become a free agent at season's end and was not considered to be signable by the team

Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer liked the depth they acquired in the form of Olt, Edwards and Grimm. Old and Grimm are headed for Triple-A Iowa while Edwards will go to Class A Daytona. 

Grant adds Garza could pitch either on Tuesday or Wednesday for Texas. This would allow him to be on his normal schedule while giving Alexi Ogando and Derek Holland an extra day to rest.  

An ESPN report dated July 22 says Garza, who has a career 63-62 record with a 3.80 ERA, is likely to start on Wednesday night against the New York Yankees.

Blaming the Brewers' slide on one position

Sep 19 2014 11:48am CDT | Source: SBNation

It's probably not fair to do so, but, well, I have a column to write. The Brewers are going to miss the playoffs because they didn't sign Jose Abreu. This is hindsight masquerading as analysis, of course. But the math is almost there! Abreu has been worth 5.3 wins above replacement according to Baseball-Reference; Mark Reynolds and Lyle Overbay have combined for 0.6 wins. Take those five wins, graft them onto the Brewers' ...
