The Texas Rangers will acquire SP Matt Garza from the Chicago Cubs Monday, July 22, in exchange for 3B Mike Olt, P C.J. Edwards and a player to be named.
Fantasy Tip: Expect to pay a hefty price for Garza in AL-only leagues with this move. His fantasy value doesn't change drastically, although he could face a stretch of adjustment as he returns to the American League and another hitter-friendly environment.
Olt was one of Texas' top prospects that made his debut last season. His primary position is third base, but he can also play some first base and outfield. Given the Cubbies' lack of a solution at the hot corner, the inclusion of Olt in this deal makes perfect sense. He struggled with vision problems earlier this year, but he's a candidate to be brought up to Chicago later this year for an audition.
