Description: Brewers right-hander Matt Garza has been scratched from Friday's start.
Insight: He was supposed to finish his 2014 season against the Cubs, but is dealing with right shoulder tightness. With Milwaukee eliminated from playoff contention, Garza finishes his season at 8-8 with a 3.64 ERA and 1.18 WHIP.
 
9/20/2014 9:52:00 PM
Description: Brewers right-hander Matt Garza was ejected Saturday night for hitting Andrew McCutchen in the fifth inning.
Insight: McCutchen was hit for the first time in the third inning, and Edinson Volquez retaliated by throwing at Ryan Braun in the fourth. At the point, warnings were issued to both benches. Garza did not appear to mean to hit McCutchen in the fifth, but was tossed nonetheless. He was throwing well after 4 2/3 innings, striking out six and not letting up a run. Garza's pitch count was at 86, making it unlikely he would advance too far into the game.
 
8/29/2014 9:05:00 PM
Description: Brewers right-hander Matt Garza (oblique) threw a successful simulated game on Friday, using all of his pitches effectively according to Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Insight: The Brewers have hoped all along that Garza could rejoin the pitching rotation without needing a minor league rehab assignment, and this is certainly a good sign. With Mike Fiers pitching very well, it's anticipated that Garza's return will bump Jimmy Nelson to the bullpen.
 
8/5/2014 1:46:00 PM
Description: Brewers right-hander Matt Garza is expected to be placed on the disabled list, according to a Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel report.
Insight: Garza is 7-7 with a 3.58 ERA this season, but suffered an oblique injury in his last start. Marco Estrada could be moved into a starting role.
 
8/3/2014 5:43:00 PM
Description: Brewers right-hander Matt Garza held the Cardinals to just one hit over six innings, but left the game with a left oblique issue, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.
Insight: The injury may have cost his team a win as the bullpen yielded three runs in the seventh inning. We await further news on the severity of the problem. Garza is 7-7 with a 3.58 ERA this season.
 
Hot7/29/2014 10:20:00 PM
Description: Brewers right-hander Matt Garza held the Rays to one run on five hits in seven innings Tuesday.
Insight: Garza (7-7, 3.74 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) allowed five runs in 1/3 innings on July 19, but he gave up four runs in 31 2/3 innings (1.14 ERA) in his other four starts this month. The right-hander has gone 5-3 with a 2.72 ERA since the start of June.
 
7/5/2014 7:14:00 PM
Description: Brewers right-hander Matt Garza outdueled Homer Bailey with a brilliant two-hit shutout Saturday.
Insight: Garza is now 6-5 with a 3.78 ERA, but has been too inconsistent to install in most fantasy lineups.
 
6/2/2014 10:28:00 PM
Description: Brewers right-hander Matt Garza cruised through Monday's start against Minnesota.
Insight: He fired 6 1/3 shutout innings, allowing just six hits and two walks. Garza (3-4, 4.42 ERA) now has 17 strikeouts over his last two outings. He'll get the ball again Saturday versus Pittsburgh.

Insight: He suffered a bruised thumb in his last start but was able to throw a successful bullpen session on Friday. Garza isn't off to a great start (1-3, 5.00 ERA in 36 innings) but we're confident he'll be able to turn things around. He's finished with an ERA lower than four each of his last seven seasons.
 
4/30/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: Brewers starter Matt Garza (thumb) expects to be ready for his next start, according to Adam McCalvy of mlb.com.
Insight: Garza left Wednesday's start with a right thumb contusion, which he suffered during an at-bat in the fourth inning. He allowed five hits, four walks and five earned runs in three innings Wednesday at St. Louis and is 1-3 with a 5.00 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP this season.

Description: Brewers starter Matt Garza suffered a bruised thumb Wednesday against the Cardinals. SOURCE: Tom Haudricourt, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Insight: He had to leave in the bottom of the fourth inning. Garza allowed five runs on five hits before exiting. He also walked four batters. It's unknown if the injury will prevent Garza (1-2, 5.00 ERA) from making his next start Monday versus Arizona.
 
4/2/2014 7:56:00 PM
Description: Matt Garza had a no-hitter for 6 2/3 innings in his Brewers debut Wednesday but gave up a homer to Chris Johnson and ended up with a 1-0 loss.
Insight: Garza gave up two hits and struck out seven in eight innings. The right-hander should be thrilled to be back in the National League -- he had a 3.17 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP in 71 innings with the Cubs last season, compared to 4.38 and 1.32 with the Rangers.
 
1/26/2014 3:21:00 PM
Description: The Brewers have finalized a four-year, $50 million contract with Matt Garza, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. The deal was reported by Ken Rosenthal a few days ago but the official announcement was delayed.
Insight: Garza will benefit from a return to the NL Central after posting a 4.38 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP in 84 1/3 innings with the Texas Rangers last season following a trade from the Chicago Cubs. Garza has recorded an ERA of 3.91 or lower in each of the last seven seasons but only once had one lower than 3.69 (3.32 in 2011).
 
1/23/2014 10:52:00 PM
Description: Updating a previous report, the Brewers and Matt Garza are still in talks and no deal is official yet. SOURCE: Brewers on Twitter
Insight: We imagine the deal will be finalized within the next 24 hours. Fox's Ken Rosenthal was the first to report that Garza had signed with Milwaukee for four years and $52 million. It seems like most teams were waiting to see what happened with Masahiro Tanaka before making any big moves. Now that Tanaka is with New York, we should see a lot of free agent signings in the next week.
 
1/23/2014 1:42:00 PM
Description: Righthander Matt Garza has agreed to a four-year, $52 million deal with Milwaukee, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.
Insight: The deal is pending a physical which is not a given with Garza, particularly with the elbow issues he's experienced over the last few seasons. Garza was 10-6 last season with a 3.82 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 136 Ks in 155 1/3 IP.
 
11/12/2013 7:44:00 PM
Description: A return to Texas seems unlikely for free agent righthander Matt Garza.
Insight: The Rangers' mid-season acquisition of Garza was always thought of as a rental and now Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram is confirming what we already believed. San Francisco has been linked to Garza in recent days though plenty of other teams should come out of the woodwork as the winter rolls on.
 
9/21/2013 10:18:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Matt Garza pitched into the ninth inning and allowed just one run on five hits Saturday against the Royals.
Insight: Garza entered Saturday with a 4.94 ERA in 71 innings since joining Texas, including a 5.72 ERA over his last nine starts.
 
9/11/2013 10:14:00 PM
Description: In 10 starts with the Texas Rangers, Matt Garza has a 4.45 ERA.
Insight: He lasted just four innings Wednesday against Pittsburgh and allowed three runs on four hits with four walks and six strikeouts. His biggest issue with the Rangers has been the longball; he has given up 10 of them in 66 2/3 innings.
 
9/1/2013 8:35:00 AM
Description: After allowing at least four earned runs in his first five starts of August, Texas right-hander Matt Garza gave up one on three hits over seven innings Saturday against the Twins.
Insight: Garza struck out nine Saturday and 25 over his last 20 2/3 innings. He's 3-2 with a 4.04 ERA in eight starts since joining Texas.
 
7/29/2013 10:15:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Matt Garza failed to win his seventh straight start Monday against the Angels but he did throw a quality outing.
Insight: Garza allowed three runs and struck out six in seven innings in a no decision. Since allowing nine earned runs in five innings on June 11, Garza has gone 6-0 and allowed nine earned runs total over his last 58 frames (1.40 ERA).
