New details have emerged on the contract Matt Garza who signed with the brewers Sunday. According to the MLB Network Garza will earn 12.5 million dollars in each of the first 4 years and 2 million each year will be deferred with no interest.
The deal also includes incentives and a vesting option that could make it worth 67 million over 5 years.
The addition of Garza gives the Brewers their strongest rotation, at least on paper since 2011, when they won the NL Central.
The big addition last year was Kyle Lohse, who signed late in spring training, and finished with an 11-and-10 record. A 3.35 ERA, and 125 strikeouts in nearly 200 innings.
Lohse said he went through some up and downs to get where he is today. "Personally it was pretty good, if you took out may. You know I was struggling in may. I had some issues going on that you know I was stubborn and kept going out there, and just couldn't finish certain pitches the way I normally would, and you know once we got that straightened out, the rest of the year, personal wise you know it went pretty good, just more concerned about you know team wise we didn't do what we were suppose to
