7/9 Matt Garza update

The Indians are among the teams seeking a starting pitcher, and are keeping an eye on Matt Garza, according to CBSSports.com and MLB Network’s Jon Heyman. They had a rep among the dozen scouts at U.S. Cellular Field Monday night to watch Garza, who was impressive. The right-hander picked up the win over the White Sox, and has given up four earned runs over his last 37 innings in his last five starts to lower his ERA to 3.22. Before this stretch, he had a 6.26 ERA in five games. The Rangers, Dodgers and Red Sox also are following Garza’s outings.

Garza, who will be a free agent after this season, did acknowledge after Monday’s game that he has talked to the Cubs about a possible extension.

“[An extension] is always on the table,” Garza said. “I voiced my opinion about how I love it here. My family loves it here. It’s always something you think about. I don’t know which route they’re going to go.”

How real is an extension?

“As real as a trade,” Garza said. “Trades are just rumors like everything else. An extension talk, I’m part of, I know for a fact where it’s at. It’s always a possibility, man, 50-50.

“At the end of the day, it comes down to my decision if I want an extension, and a trade, it’s obviously [the Cubs’]decision,” he said. “I like being a Cub, I want to get this team to October and win it here. Like I’ve said before, it’d be one [heck] of a party. I’m just going to get ready for every five days.”

So, what uniform is he wearing on Aug. 1?

“I’m hoping the Cubs, but I don’t even look that far,” Garza said. “What’s today, the 8th? Probably the 13th will be the next day I look at.”
