MILWAUKEE - After committing $50 million to free agent Matt Garza, the Milwaukee Brewers are feeling much better about their pitching staff. Gary Carter Jersey . Garza completed a four-year contract with Milwaukee on Sunday, strengthening the top of the rotation and boosting the Brewers hopes following a disappointing season. The deal includes an option and performance bonuses that could make it worth up to $67 million over five years. General manager Doug Melvin called Garza an "established, top-of-the-rotation pitcher." "The thing about signing Matt now, it gives us a lot more depth and, as you know, during a baseball season, you never use five starters," Melvin said. "So, just kind of wait and see how spring training unfolds, and always having the available depth is important to stay in a 162-game season." Garza gets $12.5 million a season, with $2 million annually deferred without interest. The deferred money is payable in four installments each Dec. 15 starting in 2018. He can earn an additional $1 million annually in performance bonuses: $500,000 each for 30 starts and 190 innings. The deal includes a $13 million option for 2018 that would become guaranteed if he makes 110 starts during the next four years, pitches 155 innings in 2017 and is not on the disabled list at the end of that season. Milwaukee also would get an extra year at a relatively low salary if he has a significant arm injury. The 30-year-old righty went 10-6 with a 3.82 ERA last season for the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers. He missed most of the first two months while recovering from an injury that affected his side and back. Garza will join Yovani Gallardo and Kyle Lohse as Milwaukees top starters. He is 67-67 with a 3.84 ERA in eight seasons with Minnesota, Tampa Bay, the Cubs and Texas. The Brewers ranked ninth in the National League with a 3.84 ERA last season, when they finished fourth in the NL Central at 74-88. Garza was looking forward to pitching — and hitting — in the NL Central again. "Its fun. I like the Central, I like pitching in the Central," he said during a conference call. "I like swinging the bat in the big parks." The move also adds depth to Milwaukees staff and puts less pressure on young pitchers such as Wily Peralta and Tyler Thornburg at the back end of the rotation. Milwaukee also has Marco Estrada and Johnny Hellweg as rotation options, and lefty Will Smith was acquired from Kansas City in December for outfielder Norichika Aoki. "Weve said now for a couple of years that were focusing on pitching and pitching depth," Attanasio told reporters. "You can never have enough pitching depth, and I would argue we have as much pitching depth as weve had (in) my 10 seasons of ownership." Garza was the MVP of the 2008 AL championship series for Tampa Bay, beating Boston twice. He also has thrown the only no-hitter in Rays history, on July 26, 2010, against Detroit. Milwaukee has protection against an arm injury in two ways. If he is on the disabled list for 130 or more days during any 183-day period for a right shoulder or elbow injury, or an injury resulting from instability in the shoulder or elbow, Milwaukee gets a $1 million option for 2018. If he has fewer than 90 starts during the next four years, the Brewers have a $5 million option. Garza has a complete no-trade provision this year. He can block deals to 15 teams in 2015, 10 in 2016 and six in 2017. Darryl Strawberry Jersey . Miralem Pjanic dribbled through the defence to score an extraordinary goal in the 43rd minute at the Stadio Olimpico and Gervinho added another from a rebound in the 65th for Romas ninth straight victory — ending Milans five-match winning streak. Jeurys Familia Jersey . They never thought it would take some blood, too. Kevin Love grabbed his 4,000th career rebound as part of a 19-point, 13-board effort to lead the Timberwolves over the Utah Jazz 112-97 on Tuesday night. http://www.metsrookiestore.com/Mets-Neil-Walker-Kids-Jersey/ . Just ask Arsenal fans. However, Arsene Wenger has repeatedly told anyone willing to listen that finishing in that spot is more important than winning a cup competition.Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Kesler scored a pair of third-period goals and added the winner in the shootout as the Anaheim Ducks stole a 6-5 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday. The first meeting of last seasons Western Conference second-round series had the feel of a playoff game, especially after the clubs combined for five goals in a wild third period. Ryan Getzlaf scored with 1:39 left in regulation to force overtime, and goals from Jakob Silfverberg and Kesler in the shootout ended the Ducks three-game slide. Jason LaBarbera took over for an ineffective Frederik Andersen midway through the second period and made 14 saves before stopping Jeff Carter and Anze Kopitar in the shootout. That was the loudest regular season game Ive ever heard, said LaBarbera. It felt like the playoffs out there. Jonathan Quick made 44 saves in the loss, but the Kings fell for the sixth time in their last eight games. If it wasnt for Jonathan, it wasnt even close, said Kings head coach Darryl Sutter. Theyre a much better team than we are. They proved it last year. Kesler beat Quick from between the circles 2:35 into third period to knot things at 3-3, but Marian Gaborik and Justin Williams each scored less than four minutes apart to give the Kings a two-goal cushion. Gaborik skated in and snuck an odd-angle shot past LaBarbera at the 7:32 mark, and Williams chipped in a rebound with 8:59 to play. A gorgeous wrap-around goal from Kesler ignited the Honda Center crowd, and Getzlafs deflection of Devante Smith-Pellys turnaround shot with 1:39 remaining provoked an even louder response from the home fans. Jacob deGrom Jersey. Sami Vatanen hooked Kopitar going in on a breakaway 9:21 into the opening period, and Kopitar backhanded one through Andersens legs for the early lead. LAs Drew Doughty scored his first goal of the season with 48.5 seconds left in the opening period with a rising slap shot into the right corner. Cam Fowler, who had missed Sundays loss to the Canucks, returned with a goal at the 7:07 mark of the second period to cut Anaheims deficit to 2-1. Just over two minutes later, however, Andersen let up a soft goal by whiffing on Trevor Lewis pedestrian wrister from the point, and Bruce Boudreau immediately pulled his starter. Silfverberg scored from the same spot as Fowler -- the right circle -- with 8:17 remaining in the middle stanza. Game Notes The Kings needed seven games to oust the Ducks in last seasons playoffs ...
