09:33 AM ET 07.19 | Reports indicate the Cubs and Rangers are getting closer on a deal for Matt Garza. Prospects from multiple levels are being discussed in the deal, including Rangers' top prospect Mike Olt. The Cubs are nearing the final stages of negotiations and were calling for "last and best" offers for Garza, an indication that a trade is near. Garza, 29, has had a spectacular season so far. He's gone 6-1 with a 3.17 ERA after returning from the DL. Over his career, Garza has a 63-62 record with a solid 3.80 ERA. He is a free agent for the first time next year, and should be in line for a fairly large multi-year deal.
