Red Sox Actively Talking to Cubs About Matt Garza

According to ESPN.COM’S Buster Olney, the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs are “actively talking” about a possible trade with pitcher Matt Garza. Olney also reports that the Rangers, Blue Jays, Indians and Dodgers are interested in acquiring Garza.

The Boston Red Sox sent scouts to watch Garza’s last start against the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday in which Garza dominated, allowing only 1 run on 4 hits in 8 innings of work. This season Garza has tallied a 4-1 record with a 3.45 ERA.

The Boston Red Sox are 54-34 this season and sit atop the AL East by 5.5 games. The Red Sox are 5th in the American League in team ERA and 2nd in strikeouts and quality starts pitched. If the Red Sox are able to give up a Double-A prospect then they might pull the trigger on the trade, but with the team doing so well there is no need for the Sox to mess with team chemistry and bring in Garza, the Sox are firing on all cylinders.
