Matt Garza shut down with shoulder stiffness
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/25/14) The Brewers have scratched veteran starter Matt Garza from his Friday start with shoulder stiffness and replaced him with Jimmy Nelson.
Garza has been on a strong roll down the stretch. He has allowed just 10 earned runs in his last 38 2/3 innings pitched, but six of those runs came in one start. He has appearently finished his season at 8-8 with a 3.64 ERA.
Matt Garza gets ejected during scoreless outing
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/20/14) Brewers pitcher Matt Garza was ejected during a scoreless start Saturday.
Garza allowed three hits over 4 2/3 scoreless innings. He struck out six and walked two during the outing. Tensions were high after Garza hit Andrew McCutchen with a pitch in the third inning. At that point, both benches were warned. Garza managed to work until the end of the fifth inning. After striking out the first two batters, Garza hit McCutchen again, and was ejected from the game.
Garza earned the no-decision for his performance. He’ll take on the Cubs in his next start.

Matt Garza lasts four innings, strikes out seven Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/10/14) Brewers pitcher Matt Garza wasn't a factor in the decision Tuesday, giving up two runs (one earned) on six hits and one walk in just four innings while striking out seven in his team's 6-3 loss to the Marlins.
Garza gave up a pair of runs in the third inning Tuesday, with the second coming after his own error extended the inning. He was removed for a pinch hitter in the bottom of the fourth, ending his night after 84 pitches. Garza owns a 3.83 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 114:45 K:BB ratio in 152 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Cardinals next Tuesday.
Matt Garza surrenders six runs in three innings vs. Cubs
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/3/14) Brewers pitcher Matt Garza took the loss Wednesday, allowing six earned runs on eight hits and one walk in just three innings while striking out three in his team's 6-2 defeat against the Cubs.
Garza (7-8) was making his first start in a month after recovering from an oblique injury. He served up a two-run home run in the second inning before really getting into trouble in the third, allowing four runs on five hits in the inning. Garza owns a 3.87 ERA and 107:44 K:BB ratio in 148 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Marlins Tuesday.
|2014 summary: In all the ways Matt Garza may have stood out in the past, he didn't in 2014, his first year with the Brewers. He had a 12-start stretch midseason in which he compiled a 2.52 ERA, but with a lower-than-usual strikeout rate and some bad luck in the wins column, it barely even registered in mixed leagues. |
Playing time status: Garza doesn't have a clean bill of health going into 2014, having been shut down late in 2014 with shoulder stiffness. It doesn't sound like much on its own, but remember he also missed the first month and a half of 2013 with a strained lat and stress reaction in his elbow, not mention almost all of August last year with a strained oblique. The accumulation and variety of his injuries are of some concern for a pitcher with only moderate upside.
2015 outlook: Garza wasn't a bust in 2014, but he never gave Fantasy owners reasons to pursue him either, which will make him easy to overlook in 2015. And that's probably for the best. While starting pitching as a whole has improved over the last several years, Garza's numbers have stayed about the same -- and he wasn't a stud to begin with. An asset in no one category, he's that guy you draft to fill out your rotation when you can't come up with anyone more exciting.
