Rosscup the extra piece of Garza deal

Left-hander Zach Rosscup was the minor league pitcher who completed the trade that sent pitcher Matt Garza from the Rays to the Chicago Cubs. Rosscup was a 2009 draft pick who was in short-season ball last year.

Garza, former Biscuits outfielder Fernando Perez and Rosscup go to the Cubs. Right-handed pitcher Chris Archer, catcher Robinson Chirinos, outfielder Sam Fuld, outfielder Brandon Guyer and shortstop Hak-Ju Lee come to the Rays.

You may remember Chirinos ... as a shortstop. He hit three triples against the Biscuits in his final game as a shortstop in May 2008. He flew to Arizona the next day to learn catching.
