|Matt Garza takes loss vs. Padres Friday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/7/14) Brewers pitcher Matt Garza was saddled with the loss Friday after allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits while striking out three in three innings in his team's 6-2 loss to the Padres.
"With my mechanics, if I can spot my fastball, then my breaking balls are a lot easier to start locating," Garza told MLB.com after the outing. "Hopefully, next outing I'm ready to go and we'll start flipping up the breaking balls. … [But] my mentality is, 'Start day? Let's go.' It's always business. Let's get our work in and start battling, start competing and get guys out even when you don't have your best stuff.
Garza's spring debut also didn't go well, as he surrendered four earned runs in a single inning of work.

|Matt Garza slated for first spring action Sunday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(2/26/14) Brewers pitcher Matt Garza is schedule to make his first spring appearance Sunday against Colorado, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
It'll be Garza's first game action since signing a four-year deal with Milwaukee in late January. He has posted an ERA under 4.00 for seven straight seasons.
|Manager: Matt Garza personality already helping Brewers |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(2/21/14) Ron Roenicke has claimed that new Brewers starter Matt Garza has already positively affected his team without throwing a pitch in a game. Roenicke has been impressed with his personality.
"He's not a guy that cmes into a new organization and just sits quietly and watches," Roenicke told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "His personality - he's just all over the place. He's vocal; he's laughing. What I like about it is he really works hard. I think that's a great combination to have. You have fun when you need to but when you need to bear down he can bear down."
Garza signed a four-year deal with a team option for a fifth in late January.
|Bad timing led to Matt Garza missing out on Angels' offer |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/17/14) Brewers starting pitcher Matt Garza explained Monday it was a case of bad timing as the reason why he didn't jump at the Angels four-year, $52 million offer in December.
"They offered, but it was more of a weird situation," Garza said, per MLB.com. "I was on vacation with my wife and I didn’t want to be disturbed, and it was like, ‘Here it is, we’ll pull it in a certain amount of hours.’ I didn’t have a chance to respond, so I just said, ‘Whatever. It is what it is.'"
|Matt Garza's topsy-turvy 2013 makes him one of the more difficult players to assess on Draft Day. At first, he was damaged goods, the start of his season delayed more than six weeks because of a lat strain, which followed a triceps strain that sidelined him for the final 2 1/2 months of 2012. Then, he was a hot commodity, one of the most attractive names on the trade market thanks to a six-start stretch with the Cubs in which he went 5-0 with a 1.24 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and a 7.8 strikeouts per nine innings. Then, he was a letdown, consistently pitching seven-plus innings for the Rangers but with a 4.38 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 7.9 strikeouts per nine innings in 13 starts. So basically, his 2013 was right in line with the rest of his career -- flashes of greatness interspersed with mediocrity. In the end, the numbers are adequate for a middle-of-the-rotation Fantasy option, but the highs and lows will drive you crazy. Landing with the Brewers shouldn't change his value too much. He's been the same in the NL and AL, in hitter's parks and pitcher's parks. For a decent ERA, decent WHIP and decent strikeout rate, you could do worse than him if he lasts beyond Round 15. Just don't expect him to be at his best all year.
