Brewers sign Matt Garza to four-year, $52 million deal

Now that Masahiro Tanaka is off the market the other starting pitching dominoes can begin falling and Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Brewers have agreed to a four-year, $52 million contract with right-hander Matt Garza.

That’s quite a bit less than most projections pegged Garza for at the beginning of the offseason and basically the same as the four-year, $49 million deal Ricky Nolasco got from the Twins.

Garza, who was traded from the Cubs to the Rangers in July and won’t require forfeiting a draft pick to sign, threw 155 total innings with a 3.82 ERA and 136/42 K/BB ratio last season. He’s struggled to stay healthy in recent years, but has generally been a solid No. 2 starter and is still only 30 years old.
