Zach Rosscup is the Pitching Prospect in the Matt Garza Deal

Chicago Cubs News, Chicago Cubs Transactions, Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects

The Chicago Cubs and Tampa Bay Rays finalized the Matt Garza deal today, and the mystery pitcher in the deal is young Zach Rosscup, the Rays’ 28th round pick in the 2009 Draft (shrug), and he pitched very well (hooray) in low A ball last year (shrug) as a 22 year old (double shrug). He could become relevant a couple years down the line, but for now, he gets a big ‘ole – you guessed it – shrug.


That puts the deal in the books as Chris Archer, Hak-Ju Lee, Brandon Guyer, Robinson Chirinos and Sam Fuld for Matt Garza, Fernando Perez and Zach Rosscup.

This will take a moment to digest.
