The Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs are continuing trade discussions that would send right-handed starting pitcher Matt Garza to Los Angeles in exchange for a Zach Lee-centric package, reports Jim Bowden of ESPN. Who's doing more of the talking remains to be seen, but the Cubs are set on moving Garza at the trade deadline.

The Cubs have been seeking a premium prospect in return for Garza, and this deal sounds like it would certainly satisfy them. Lee is the considered to be the Dodgers top prospect, because of his upside and age. However, he is currently struggling in Double-A for the Dodgers, posting a 7.2 K/9 and 5.4 BB/9. But even then, he's just 20-years-old and far from a complete package.
