By Paul Sullivan
Chicago Cubs pitcher Matt Garza was traded Monday to the Texas Rangers for four prospects, the team confirmed.
The Cubs and Rangers finally worked out the details of a trade that will send third baseman Mike Olt and right-handed pitchers C.J. Edwards and Justin Grimm, plus a player to be named, to the Cubs in exchange for the veteran right-hander.
The deal is pending physicals for the players involved.
Garza was scratched from his scheduled start Monday night against Arizona. Left-hander Chris Rusin will start in place of Garza vs. the Diamondbacks.
Chris Rusin was called up from Triple-A Iowa and will start tonight’s game in place of Garza.
