Chicago Cubs starting pitcher, Matt Garza will miss his scheduled start tonight against Arizona Diamondbacks because he has just been traded to the Texas Rangers confirm by Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.  The 29-year-old Garza was in his third season with the Cubs, is 6-1 with a 3.17 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 62 strikeouts in 71 innings this season. 

In a tweet from Rosenthal, the Texas Rangers gave up three minor league players:

The third player involved in the trade is right-hander pitcher Justin Grimm.  Garza is a rental as of now and will soon be one of the biggest free agents in the offseason.  With the addition to Garza, the Texas Rangers have bolstered their pitching staff that should compete for another strong post-season run.  Yu Darvish, Garza, and Hollins should solidify a strong pitching staff down the stretch.
