MLB Trade Rumors: Cleveland Indians Interested In Matt Garza

According to a report filed by Fox Sports contributor Jon Morosi, the Cleveland Indians are one of several teams interested in acquiring Chicago Cubs right-hand pitcher Matt Garza.

In addition to the Indians, Morosi reported that the Arizona Diamondbacks, Boston Red Sox, Cincinnati Reds, Detroit Tigers and St. Louis Cardinals have all been kicking the tires on the 28-year old starter.

While discussions are far from serious at this point, the Cubs had scouts in attendance at a recent Erie SeaWolves game, which is the Tigers Double-A affiliate club who has a wealth of prospects.

Garza is 4-7 with a 4.32 earned-run average over 93.2 innings pitched in 16 starts with the Cubs this season.
