Many of the same teams that have had strong interest in Chicago Cubs right-hander Matt Garza were on hand to watch his outing on Saturday night at Wrigley Field.

The Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays remain the front-runners for a trade with Chicago, according to industry sources. The Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians and San Francisco Giants have also expressed strong interest in the pitcher.

Garza pitched 6⅔ innings Saturday, giving up 10 hits but only two runs. Garza, 29, won his sixth game of the season despite not having his best command against the St. Louis CardinalsSt. Louis Cardinals in a 6-4 Cubs win.

"He is extremely impressive," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. "Tonight, he was missing by a half a ball, and there were huge pitches in the game that cost him [extra] pitches, too. His last five or six starts have been extremely impressive."

The Cubs will have a different schedule for Garza if he is not traded during the All-Star break. The plan is for him to be passed up next weekend when play resumes for Chicago against the Colorado Rockies in Denver. The way it stands now, Garza will have eight days between starts. His next scheduled outing will be in Phoenix on July 22 against the Arizona Diamondbacks. If for some reason he has not been traded by then, his last start before the non-waiver trading deadline passes will be in San Francisco on July 27.

"I know exactly what is going to happen," Garza said after his fifth straight quality start. "I am going to come in tomorrow and get my day-after workout. I am going to enjoy the All-Star break and see if I can catch that flight on Thursday or Friday to Denver."

On Friday, Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein admitted that Garza's situation is still up in the air.

"He is throwing the ball extremely well, and he is very healthy," Epstein said. "There are teams out there looking for pitching that are going to call and try and acquire him. He is helping us win games right now, and there is a chance to possibly retain him beyond this year. We will just balance it all out and do what is best for the organization."
