Cubs Rumors: Miami Marlins Interested In Matt Garza?

We can add another team to the list of suitors for Chicago Cubs starter Matt Garza, as Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports is reporting that the Miami Marlins have shown serious interest in the Cubs' top pitcher. The Marlins were in pursuit of former Oakland starter Gio Gonzalez before the A's traded him to Washington, so it appears that they're not entirely satisfied with their current rotation.

The Marlins are one of many teams that are reportedly interested in Garza. Rosenthal notes that the Cubs continue to speak with multiple teams, including the Marlins and the Detroit Tigers, who could potentially have the upper hand if they're willing to include top prospect Jacob Turner in offers.

Sources told Rosenthal that Marlins top prospect Christian Yelich was a key target of the A's in Gio Gonzalez trade talks, and he'll likely be Chicago's top target in discussions. Players that the Marlins are reportedly willing to move in trades include first baseman Gaby Sanchez, third baseman Matt Dominguez, outfielder Chris Coghlan and relief pitcher Jose Ceda.
