Report: Garza traded to the Rangers

Sounds like the deal is almost official.  Numerous reports are now saying that the Cubs have traded Matt Garza to the Rangers for Mike Olt, C.J. Edwards and possibly Justin Grimm.  If that is the final package then this is a clear win for the Cubs as the Rangers just gave up a MLB ready pitcher, a youngish one too (Grimm), a high end prospect arm (Edwards), and there number one prospect coming into this year (Olt) for ten starts out of Matt Garza.  More to come later..

Sounds like the Cubs are also getting a player to be named in the deal, and the players in that group are quite good.  Chris Rusin starts tonight for the Cubs.
