The Cubs got some good news on Matt Garza, as an MRI exam on his lat injury revealed only a minor strain.

Patrick Mooney of reports that Garza will rest for a week, which means his Cactus League debut will be pushed back, but so far at least the injury is nothing that should keep him out for the regular season.

Not only is Garza a key piece of Chicago’s rebuilt rotation, keeping him healthy is important because the Cubs would no doubt love to cash in the impending free agent for some prospect help before the trade deadline.

    Time for Garza to quit drinking lat and switch to cappuccino.

      PS – I hope the Cubbies realize that Tweeter is available now – his knee for Garza’s wonky lat, straight up.

    There is no such thing as a mild lat strain
