MLB Trade Rumors: Tigers Interested In Matt Garza, But Talks Not Serious

On Friday afternoon, Fox Sports contributor Jon Morosi reported that the Detroit Tigers have interest in acquiring Chicago Cubs pitcher Matt Garza.

Morosi stated that the Cubs recently scouted the Tigers' Double-A affiliate, the Erie SeaWolves, which is considered to be a prospect-heavy club. At this time, though, talks have not yet become serious, but there is clearly an interest.

However, the Tigers aren't the only team to be reportedly kicking the tires on Garza.

According to Morosi, the Arizona Diamondbacks, Boston Red Sox, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians and St. Louis Cardinals are also in the mix to acquire the 28-year old, right-handed starting pitcher.

Garza is 4-7 with a 4.32 earned-run average over 93.2 innings pitched in 16 starts with the Cubs this season.
