Matt Garza (elbow) threw 30 pitches in a bullpen session Monday with no issues.

Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer and pitching coach Chris Bosio watched the bullpen session and were impressed with what they saw. "Matty looks like he is in great shape," said Bosio. "It looks like he worked hard in the offseason. His legs are in great shape and I believe he is ahead of where he was last year when he reported." Garza was shut down last season due to a stress reaction in his throwing elbow, but he could prove to be a nice value in fantasy drafts if he's back to full health.
