Matt Garza rumors: Rangers, Indians, Red Sox, Cardinals

USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Cubs have informed right hander Matt Garza that he will likely be traded after contract talks failed to end with an extension according to a report from Jon Heyman of CBSSports. Garza has received interest from the Rangers, Indians, Red Sox and Cardinals.

Texas and Cleveland seem to be clear players while Boston's interest might depend somewhat on the return schedule of injured star Clay Buchholz, which is unclear. St. Louis is believed by others to be a stealth player in the derby for the red-hot righthander.

Garza has established himself as the top starter on the trade market in his last five starts, posting a 1.47 ERA, .225 BAA, 33 strike outs and three home runs in 36.2 innings.

Injury issues to Colby Lewis and Matt Harrison have cranked up the interest in Garza for the Rangers while the Indians are looking to add a top-of-the-rotation starter.

Almost all contenders have at least checked in on the asking price for Garza, which will likely be high.
