Chiacgo Cubs Have Told Garza He Will Be Traded

The Cub’s star pitcher Matt Garza has gotten news from his agent that the Chicago Cubs will be trading him sometime soon. It’s clear that the Cub aren’t in a win-now situation, they have plenty of time to wait for the right season. They still seem to have the infamous Cubs Curse, but maybe by trading Garza they can bring in some players to help in the coming years. At least that’s what Matt Garza has heard from the organization.

They told my agent [earlier in the week] that they were going to move me. They said as much as they like me they need to add inventory for the future. I want to stay, but that doesn’t seem possible now.

As of this point, there are four teams that are in the race for the pitcher. The Texas Rangers, Cleveland Indians, Toronto Blue Jays, and Los Angeles Dodgers all have expressed interest in Garza, and the Rangers seem to be the front runner right now. They have been looking at Matt Garza for about four years now, so it’s obvious they want him.

Garza has expressed interest in staying with his current team, but that’s how the business works. Wherever Gaza goes, he should be able to make an immediate impact, but we will just have to see where he ends up within the next few days or weeks.

I don’t think we are far away from winning.You look at our pitchers and the competitive way of the team. That is not my call. It looks like I will be pitching elsewhere soon.

A trade could happen as soon as the weekend, so stay updated at FanSided for further news! And let me know down in the comments where you think Garza will land, or where he’ll make the biggest impact!
