Cubs' Garza feeling no pain in pulled muscle

MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Chicago Cubs right-hander Matt
Garza said Sunday that he has no pain from the pulled side muscle that
prevents him from throwing.

A week after feeling a
twinge in his left side while throwing batting practice, Garza said that
he's progressing and getting better, although he added that there is
just a "little spot that's annoying."

Manager Dale
Sveum said the problem is "very slight" and that Garza is getting better
every day.

The pitcher was limited to 18 starts in
2012 because of an elbow injury. He was going through his most extensive
work since last July when he felt something a week
ago.

Garza wore a bulky wrap around his midsection in
the Cubs clubhouse Sunday. He said he isn't sure when he will throw
again but hopes to in the next few days.
