Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza is rolling with an ERA of 19.06 so far this spring, but he's not worried about his numbers in camp and said he'll be ready for the start of the regular season. He gave up 10 runs (six earned) and nine hits Wednesday, March 12.
Fantasy Tip: Garza's golden years are behind him, and he wasn't anything special in his return from elbow surgery last year with the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers. In Milwaukee, he won't stand out, and you likely have to deal with an ERA above or near 4.00, but you could do worse with him as your third or fourth starter.
