11/14 Garza to be examined
The Cubs expect an update this week on Matt Garza, who was sidelined with an elbow injury. Garza made 18 starts before he was shut down in July with a stress reaction in his right elbow. He was to have a scan done on his arm. The Cubs signed Scott Baker on Tuesday, and are in the market for at least one more starter.
“We’re pursuing pitchers across the spectrum,” Theo Epstein said. “[We’re looking at] some guys who might be classified as buy low, there might even be ‘buy high’ guys, some multi-year deals, some trades. We’re looking for pitchers who can step in and improve our rotation. If there are sound investments out there, whether they’re big or small, we’ll pursue them and try to sign them.”
