The Chicago Cubs got a scare on Saturday night when SP Matt Garza -- a major topic in the budding trade market -- left the game in the third inning due to an apparent injury. According to Doug Padilla of ESPN Chicago, however, the injury should be minor:

Garza is rumored to be a trade target for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston Red Sox and a number of other teams in contention. He currently sports a 3.91 ERA and 4.14 FIP through 103 and 2/3 innings in the 2012 MLB season.
