Creative Artists Agency, which represents the right-hander, announced the deal Thursday night on Twitter. Garza also posted on his account, ``Business side over! Hooray! Time to focus on what really matters 2013.''

Garza avoided arbitration a year ago as well, agreeing to a $9.5 million deal with the Cubs, and was a potential trade candidate before he was derailed by an injury to his pitching elbow against St. Louis on July 21.

He missed the rest of the season, finishing 5-7 with a 3.91 ERA in 18 starts.

Garza, the 2008 AL championship series MVP with Tampa Bay, can become a free agent after the upcoming season.
