Despite suffering a biceps injury in his last outing, interest in Chicago Cubs right-handed starting pitcher Matt Garza remains high. But with time running out to deal Garza this regular season, the Toronto Blue Jays and Cincinnati Reds have become the more realistic options for Theo Epstein and company. Let's check out the latest on the Garza market...

  • According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Texas Rangers have had trouble finding a match with the Cubs, making them an unlikely destination for Garza. However, Rosenthal adds the Toronto Blue Jays and Cincinnati Reds appear to be the more realistic landing spots.
  • Richard Griffin of The Toronto Star writes the Jays maintain interest in acquiring Garza before the trade deadline and "are believed to have already asked the Cubs for permission to conduct a physical," on the 28-year-old. The Jays would have the edge over the Reds given how loaded Toronto's system is from top-to-bottom.
