Matt Garza: Oblique strain not so bad this time


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) The Brewers don't anticipate right-hander Matt Garza needing any longer than the required 15 days to return from a strained left oblique that landed him on the disabled list, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

The team believes that the strain is not as serious at the one he sustained last February, which prevented him from pitching for seven weeks.

"It's not as bad as the last one," Garza claimed. "I have more range of motion, it's easier doing things every day - breathing, coughing, waking up, rolling out of bed. It's a lot easier than it was last year. I don't think it'll be too long, but at the same time, I don't read medicals, either."

Garza went down in the midst of a roll in which he yielded just two runs on eight hits in 21 innings pitched. He is 7-7 with a 3.58 ERA on the season.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Garza suffered an oblique strain during spring training in 2013 and missed the first seven weeks of the season. Roenicke hopes Garza won't be sidelined as long this time.

"I don't really know," Roenicke said. "He didn't think he did as much as he did last year. Last year, he was out for a long time. Hopefully this year, it's just a slight one and he won't be out as long."

Marco Estrada and Mike Fiers are the two leading candidates to replace Garza in the rotation.
