The Chicago Cubs have been busy in 2012. Carlos Zambrano was sent to the Miami Marlins. The team picked up first baseman Anthony Rizzo from the San Diego Padres. And Chicago has reportedly signed former Pittsburgh Pirates lefty Paul Maholm as well.
Now it appears that pitcher Matt Garza is about to be dealt. All offseason, plenty of rumors have surfaced about where Garza would end up and the current destination appears to be the Detroit Tigers.
CSN Chicago reports that "the Cubs are down the road in discussions with the Detroit Tigers" to send Garza to Michigan in exchange for a bunch of prospects. Other teams interested in Garza, the site notes, are the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays. If he ends up in Detroit, CSN notes, Garza will be the No. 2 pitcher behind Cy Young winner Justin Verlander.
The Yanks, according to CSN, "have balked at what they felt was an excessive asking price," but the Tigers are willing to give up some top prospects for the 28-year-old Garza, who went 10-10 with a 3.32 ERA last season.
