The Chicago Cubs told Matt Garza's agent that they would trade the right-hander to add inventory for the future, Garza told ESPNChicago.com's Bruce Levine on Friday.

"They told my agent [earlier in the week] that they were going to move me," Garza said. "They said as much as they like me they need to add inventory for the future. I want to stay, but that doesn't seem possible now."

The Texas Rangers, Los Angeles Dodgers, Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays have been told to make their final bids for the pitcher, sources told Levine. Fox Sports reported late Thursday that the Rangers are closing in on a deal for Garza.

Garza said he was originally scheduled to pitch on Saturday against the Colorado Rockies but was told by the Cubs he will start on Monday against the Arizona Diamondbacks instead if he's not traded first.

Reports last week said the Cubs and Garza's camp talked about a contract extension, but the pitcher said that doesn't appear to be an option.

"There really was not another offer on a contract at this point," Garza said.
