The Texas Rangers seem to be the leading team to get Matt Garza from the Chicago Cubs, but no deal has been made yet as the both clubs continue to work on a trade.

T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com throws out infielders Mike Olt and Luis Sardinas along with pitchers Neil Ramirez and C.J. Edwards as some names being rumored to be thrown into a trade to get Garza. Rangers manager Ron Washington told MLB.com that he would definitely like the addition.

“I’ll get excited if what we’re talking about comes to fruition,” manager Ron Washington said. “I’m not going to get excited if the property we’re talking about is not ours. This is a tough business. You’ve got to play with what you have. That’s the attitude we have.”

Carrie Boarman of Tireball says the trade is “99 percent done” with both infielders “definitely part of the package.”

Garza didn’t add anything on his end, telling reporters he’s “just sitting and waiting” for the whole process to play out. He has a scheduled start for Monday.

The right-handed hurler is 6-1 on the year with a 3.17 ERA and 62 strikeouts.
