The Cubs acquired Garza in a blockbuster trade in January 2011 that sent prospects SS Hak-Ju Lee, SP Christopher Archer, OF Brandon Guyer, and C Robinson Chirinos -- along with fourth outfielder and fan favorite Sam Fuld -- to the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for Garza, minor league outfielder Fernando Perez, and minor league pitcher Zachary Rosscup.

Garza proceeded to have a career year with the Cubs, sporting a 3.32 ERA and 2.95 FIP over 198 innings of work. Garza is under team control until the 2014, when he will become a free agent.
