No “real favorite” for Garza says Heyman
by Matt S.
There’s “no real favorite” in the Matt Garza sweepstakes, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. It’s a five-team derby, according to the report, between the Yankees, Blue Jays, Tigers, Red Sox and Marlins. Chicago is seeking young pitchers, which is why New York’s Manny Banuelos and Dellin Betances, Detroit’s Jacob Turner, Boston’s Anthony Ranaudo and Toronto’s young hurlers have been bandied about in rumors. Florida would likely build a package around Class-A outfielder Christian Yelich and perhaps available youngsters Matt Dominguez, Gaby Sanchez, Chris Coghlan or Jose Ceda. Garza, 28, posted a 3.32 ERA and 197/63 K/BB ratio in 198 innings this past season. He’s arbitration-eligible for two more years.
