Garza Cleared to Start Off-Season Routine

The Cubs received good news on Thursday morning when Matt Garza was medically cleared to resume baseball activities and begin his off-season program. A second scan on Garza’s right elbow revealed that the injury was healing as expected.

Garza said on twitter, “I’m cleared for takeoff!! Strap it on tight cause we are going on one helluva ride..”
