The Matt Garza File

By bullpenbrian at 12.15.2010 Leave a comment.

To trade or not to trade for Matt Garza? The right-hander is 27-years-old and a five-year veteran.

Last three seasons in Tampa Bay:
-(34-31), 3.86 ERA.
-Started 30,32,32 games.
-Tossed six complete games.
-Threw 200+ innings twice (’09-’10) & 184 IP in ’08.
-Struck out 467 vs. 201 walks.
-Started five playoff games going (2-1) with a 3.48 ERA.

According to Baseball-Reference.com, Garza is close in similarity score to John Danks (977 out of 1,000) and Mike Pelfrey (967).

He’s similar through age 26 to Kip Wells (982), Steve Trachsel (982), Brad Penny (972), Jason Marquis (971) and Darryl Kile (970).

Is Garza worth a package of young Cub prospects? You tell me.
