Matt Garza Signs With Brewers
The Milwaukee Brewers have signed Matt Garza to a 4 year $52 mil deal. Garza will join Yovani Gallardo, Kyle Lohse, Marco Estrada and Wily Peralta in the Brewers rotation. Since being traded to the Chicago Cubs from the Tampa Bay Rays after the 2010 season, Garza is just 25-23 with an ERA in the high 3s. He was traded again last season after a 6-1 start with the Cubbies to the Texas Rangers and made 13 starts, going 4-5 with a 4.48 ERA. Garza has the potential to win 15 games again, and going back to the National League helps. With Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy, Aramis Ramirez, Jean Segura and Carlos Gomez providing run support, I like Garza in Milwaukee.
