Matt Garza‘s elbow injury kept the Cubs from being able to trade him and then kept him from pitching in August and September, but it won’t keep him from a normal offseason routine.
Garza had his elbow scanned by doctors earlier this week and Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports that he was given a clean bill of health.
Garza is arbitration eligible for the final time in 2013 and will be a free agent after the season, so expect the trade rumors to start swirling again if he looks healthy in the early going.
