1/19 Garza numbers updated
Matt Garza and the Cubs exchanged salary figures on Tuesday. The right-hander is seeking $12.5 million while the Cubs countered at $7.95 million. Usually, the team and player reach agreement on a halfway point, which, in this case, would be $10.225 million. Garza was 10-10 with a 3.32 ERA in 31 starts in his first season with the Cubs. He will be a free agent after the 2013 season. The Cubs avoided arbitration with six other players.
(Note: Garza’s numbers were incorrectly reported at first. The above fixes that.)
