The Milwaukee Brewers and right-handed pitcher Matt Garza have agreed on a four-year contract, which Garza signed Sunday, sending him to the Brew Crew through 2018.
The deal is reportedly worth a guaranteed $50 million, according to John Heyman of CBSSports.com. The deal also includes up to $1 million in incentives and a vesting option for the 2018 season.
“Matt is an established top-of-the-rotation pitcher who provides our staff with experience and quality depth,” Brewers general manager Doug Melvin told the Associated Press.
The 30-year old Garza was 10-6 last season with a 3.82 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP and 136 strikeouts in 155 1/3 innings for the Cubs and Rangers. He missed the first two months of the 2013 season recovering from an injury that affected his back and side.
Garza is 67-67 with a 3.84 ERA in eight seasons with Minnesota, Tampa Bay, the Cubs and Texas.
