Cubs sending Garza to Rangers for 4 players

Chicago Cubs pitcher Matt Garza was traded Monday to the Texas Rangers for four prospects, the team confirmed.

The Cubs and Rangers finally worked out the details of a trade that will send third baseman Mike Olt and right-handed pitchers C.J. Edwards and Justin Grimm, plus a player to be named, to the Cubs in exchange for the veteran right-hander.

One of the players could be right-hander Neil Ramirez, or another player if the Cubs choose to pick someone else.

The deal is pending physicals for the players involved.

Garza was scratched from his scheduled start Monday night against Arizona. Left-hander Chris Rusin will start in place of Garza vs. the Diamondbacks.

WGN Radio’s David Kaplan reported earlier that he spoke with Garza, who confirmed the trade.
