MILWAUKEE - Free agent pitcher Matt Garza and the Milwaukee Brewers have reached agreement
on a four-year contract.

Brewers owner Mark Attanasio made the announcement Sunday on stage during a
question-and-answer session at a fan event.

Attanasio says the contract still has to go through ``final approval.''

There had been recent reports that the Brewers were talking to Garza about a
four-year deal worth $52 million.

The 30-year-old righty went 10-6 with a 3.82 ERA last season for the Chicago
Cubs and Texas Rangers. Garza would join Yovani Gallardo and Kyle Lohse at the
top of Milwaukee's rotation.
