DALLAS (CBSSPORTS.COM) - Cubs starting pitcher Matt Garza is being discussed in a possible trade with the Texas Rangers, sources have told Danny Knobler of CBSSPORTS.COM. Garza has been rumored to be on the trading block throughout the offseason, though at other times he’s been rumored to be part of the Cubs’ future plans. Basically, new Cubs’ braintrust (Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer) seem to be keeping everything very close to the vest.

The Rangers’ interest is obvious. Though still in the running for free agent starting pitcher C.J. Wilson, the Marlins and Angels appear to be the obvious favorites. Rangers general manager Jon Daniels told reporters Wednesday that he wouldn’t be surprised to lose Wilson.

While Neftali Feliz is moving to the rotation, the Rangers still only have four definite starters in Feliz, Colby Lewis, Derek Holland and Matt Harrison. They can use either Scott Feldman or Alexi Ogando, but acquiring Garza would allow them to keep the bullpen very strong in front of new closer Joe Nathan and setup man Mike Adams.

Garza, 28, was 10-10 (with awful run support and defense behind him) with a 3.32 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 197 strikeouts in 198 innings for the Cubs last season.
