Growing Up Garza

January 23, 2007, 6:37 PM by Jay Elsen

Growing Up Garza
The Twins rotation is drawing the biggest questions marks this winter, as the team scrambles to find a way to replenish their starting five.

And it's that uncertainty that is forcing one of the organization's top prospects to grow up quickly.

Twins phenom Matt Garza is living out his childhood dream. 

"It's the life everybody wants to live, going to play a game for a living...What else can you ask for," says Garza.

Well, conditioning for one. The 23-year-old right-hander admits that the grind of professional baseball wore him down in his rookie season. 

"I used too many bullets too early, and the ones I used I could have saved for September. And that's part of this game is just learning what your body can do, and what your body can handle," said Garza.

Now, with a new-found pace, Garza says he feels better than ever. And hopes to become the newest cornerstone of the Twins' rotation. 

"Everybody is hungry for a shot at the big leagues and to stay in the big leagues," says Garza. "I'm looking forward to earning my job and showing them that I'm ready ."

Which will be a chore in and of itself, as Minnesota continues to compete in one of the M-L-B's most difficult divisions. 

Garza said, "The Tigers went out and signed some big dudes. The White Sox are always there. The Indians are up-and-coming. The Central looks like its going to be back to what it was last year. And how else would you want it? I'd rather have a tight race than an open one...It's going to be a blast."
