Matt Garza rumors: 80 percent chance to be traded before next start

USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Cubs are 80 percent likely to trade righty Matt Garza before his next start, which is Monday or Tuesday, according to a report from Jim Bowden of ESPN.

The Texas Rangers, Arizona Diamondbacks and Boston Red Sox are all interested, while the Diamondbacks are a real dark horse in this race, especially if they are willing to part with left-handed starter David Holmberg.

The 21-year-old isn't overpowering, but he has a 2.97 ERA in 19 starts for Double-A Mobile this year.

Garza has been the subject of many trade rumors and is the top starting pitching option on the market.

The Cubs will likely demand one or two top prospects from any team that would like to acquire him. The Rangers are the favorites to land Garza according to our own Chris Cotillo's report.
