Brewers Allegedly Sign Matt Garza To A Four-Year $52 Million Contract

GarzaJust about a month before pitchers and catchers arrive to begin spring training, the Milwaukee Brewers have pursued Matt Garza as one of their starters.

The Brewers are giving him a reported four-year, $52 million deal (pending a physical), close to the four-year, $60 million that Jim Bowden predicted back in November, so health issues didn’t scare off the Brewers.

What do the Brewers get? A 30-year-old right-hander with a two-seam fastball with good movement, plus a four-pitch arsenal that includes a slider — his best strikeout weapon (batters hit .163 off it with 75 of his 136 K’s coming on the slider).
