Matt Garza: Should be Ready for Opener Staff

Update: Manager Dale Sveum said that Garza (arm) should be ready for Opening Day if he's able to throw in the next few days, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Recommendation: Garza said he would have been able to pitch Sunday if the team had allowed him to, but since he's still feeling some slight irritation, the Cubs are being careful. He's still expected to throw this week and should prove Sveum correct if he's able to avoid any further setbacks during the spring.
