Garza eyes next rehab start, potentially his last


CHICAGO -- Matt Garza's next Minor League rehab outing will be Thursday for Triple-A Iowa, and the Cubs will make a decision after that as to whether the right-hander is ready to be activated from the disabled list.

Garza is rehabbing from a left lat strain suffered in Spring Training. He gave up three hits, walked two and struck out two over 3 1/3 innings Saturday for Double-A Tennessee. It was his third Minor League rehab start, and he threw 66 pitches, 40 for strikes.

Cubs manager Dale Sveum said Garza threw with a lot of "aggressiveness" in his Monday bullpen session.

"We just have to get him built up, so he can at least go out there for [six innings]," Sveum said.
