The Brewers say they're in talks with free agent Matt Garza to fortify their pitching staff.

Milwaukee issued a statement Thursday evening following reports of a $52 million US, four-year agreement between the Brewers and the 30-year-old right-hander, pending a physical.

The statement says "despite media reports, negotiations between the Brewers and Matt Garza are ongoing, but there is no deal yet."

Garza would join Yovani Gallardo and Kyle Lohse to form what could be a solid rotation top. Garza went 10-6 with a 3.82 ERA last year for the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers, striking out 136 in 155 1-3 innings.
