That stressed area near Matt Garza's elbow gets scanned soon.

Some time soon, or maybe it's already happened, Matt Garza is going to get that stressed area on his pitching arm scanned.
It's just routine, this scan.
Part of a "regularly scheduled check-up", says ESPN.
No big deal or anything.
Except maybe a couple prospects or 3, depending on if Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer decide to trade him.
I'm sure the results will be fine.
There are good arguments on both sides about trading him or not, but since they already tried even I'm smart enough to figure he'll go when the right offer comes along.
Anyway, hope it all goes well.

  • welcome to the cubs j.nathan.

    2 pitches into the inning and there's a guy on 3rd with 0 outs (triple).

    his velocity is hanging around 91/92mph.

  • Always a good idea to bring in Richard against a LH batter.

  • a.russell out and down into the clubhouse...no one knows why.

    it's very hot on the field, so it might be heat related.

  • I blame the All-Star game again, or else Michael Barrett.

  • Miller park roof is closing. Hmmm, might play differently now?

    Lester at 72 pitches through 3. Roof closing might get him through 6.

    Middlebrows pulls a calf or hamstring. Len says he blew a tire rounding 1st. Nieuwenhuis enters game.

    Now roof opening. Dizziness. No AC in the ballpark wrt the field.

  • just to lighten the mood:
    Shark's day: 5.2 IP 5 Runs (all earned), 8 Hits, 2 HR. Left the game down 5-0 to Yankees.

    Anyone expecting game 4 NLCS Shark vs Hammel or Lackey?

  • First inning: two on, no out, Rizz and Zobrist due up. Don't score.
    Third inning: two on, one out, KB and Rizz due up. Don't score.

    This is getting' old, fellahs.

  • 62 through 2ip...yow.

    it's an off day for d.ross, too. the wild pitch + passed ball in 2 separate strike 3 calls allowing the runner to reach 1st and the 5sb through 2ip makes for a bad game so far. ross cant shoulder any blame for some of those SBs, especially that villar steal of 3rd while lester watched him.

  • 39 pitch inning by Lester. I guess it's a wash vs yesterday's 1st when Lackey gave up 2 run HR.

  • lester threw over to 1st! ...badly. braun takes 2nd.

    it was a slow rainbow throw.

  • wow...villar just stole 3rd (after stealing 2nd) by walking 1/2 way to 3rd and then just sprinting toward 3rd with lester watching him do it from the mound.

  • Torres for Chapman I think Yankees are aiming high,but would much rather get him to keep away from Giants or Nationals.
