The Texas Rangers got a win on the trade market acquiring Matt Garza from the Chicago Cubs. Garza was traded for Mike Olt, Justin Grimm, and players to be named later. Garza has 6-1 record this season with 3.74 ERA.

He’s an extremely talented pitcher that has had success in the toughest of divisions and the biggest stages, who is throwing the ball as well as anybody right now,” Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said of Garza.

It’s a power repertoire, a little bit of a different look from what we’ve got.”

Later on Monday night, the Rangers used 6 1/3 innings of shutout baseball from Yu Darvish with four strike outs in a 3-0 win over the New York Yankees.

Darvish threw for the first time since July 6th and did not disappoint in his return from the disabled list.

Texas still struggled at the plate with only 8 hits in the ball game, but Nelson Cruz helped the cause with a 7th inning homer to seal the victory. Texas remains 3 games back from Oakland for first place in the American League West.

Texas and New York face off again tonight at 7:05 with the Rangers sending Alexi Ogando to the mound against Yankees starter Phil Hughes.
