BOSTON (AP) – Right-hander Matt Garza was scratched from his scheduled start for Sunday’s series-finale against the Boston Red
Sox.

Manager Mike Quade said before Saturday’s game that Garza had a “little stiffness with his elbow” and will be checked out Monday.

The club was uncertain who would start Sunday, but Quade indicated that left-handed reliever James Russell was the leading candidate. The manager also said he may have to use a number of relievers.

Garza (2-4), who won 15 games with Tampa Bay last season, was acquired in a trade during the offseason. He signed a $5.95 million, 1-year deal with the Cubs in January, avoiding arbitration a week after being traded.
