Matt Garza Rumors: Cubs Targeting Dodgers' Zach Lee In Trade Talks

The Chicago Cubs appear to still be pursuing their trade talks with the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to Jim Bowden of ESPN and XM Radio. The Cubs and Dodgers have been engaged in talks concerning SP Matt Garza and SP Ryan Dempster, and it appears Chicago is targeting young right-hander SP Zach Lee:

Lee, a top prospect for LA, began the 2012 season with the Dodgers' High-A affiliate, starting 12 games there with a 4.55 ERA and 4.03 FIP. His last five starts have come at the Double-A level, but he has scuffled a bit as he sports a 9.45 ERA and 5.50 FIP.
