Cubs fans collectively held their breath last week when Matt Garza left with an apparent injury. Initially we got word that he would miss his next start and pitch on Monday, July 30, but today Cub fans got the news they didn’t want to hear. An MRI showed that Garza still has fluid in his right tricep and Dale Sveum told reporters today that he will not pitch Monday and will be pushed back to later in the week. Later in the week means after the trade deadline on Tuesday, which is bad news for the Cubs as it becomes highly unlikely the Cubs will be able to move him before the deadline. The Cubs are not placing Garza on the DL hoping to keep what little hope alive that a deal still might be struck. One has to wonder when the Cubs will get some good news on the trade front.
