Matt Garza to Padres?

Matt Garza is probably now the most likely Cubs player to be traded and in the last month he has really helped his stock as he has pitched to a 4.05 ERA in June but has been great in his last 3 starts going 2-0 with a 0.82 ERA and a .190/.256/.278 split against him in his last three games. He has been striking out batters left and right with a K/9 of 9.4 and a BB/9 of 2.04 which is great. The team Garza has been rumored most likely to go to is the San Diego Padres. The Padres are Jed Hoyers former team and he should know most of the farm team. I expect Garza to get a solid pitching prospect such as Matt Wisler (20) or Jose De Paula (23). They are not top flight pitchers but they are young and have done well in AA. I would also hope for a filler someone who isn't the next great player but who is organizational depth.
