4:04pm: The Rangers have acquired Matt Garza from the Cubs, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports (on Twitter). In a second tweet, Passan adds that Mike Olt is in the package.
Garza, 29, has been tremendous for the Cubs this season. Though he began the season on the disabled list, he’s shown little signs of rust since being activated on May 21. In 71 innings this season, Garza has pitched to a 3.17 ERA with 7.9 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9. He is a free agent at season’s end and therefore cannot be tied to draft pick compensation.
