Matt Garza (lat) is now playing catch at 75 feet.

Garza feels like he can do more but will follow the Cubs' conservative plan. "I'm pushing to try to speed it up but they have me on a real set pace right now and it's going real good," the 29-year-old right-hander said Monday in camp. The Cubs are expected to use Garza as trade bait this summer and will want him as healthy as possible when the July 31 deadline approaches. He should make his 2013 regular-season debut by early May.
