Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza said has revamped his pitching mechanics in an attempt to cut down injury risks.
Fantasy Tip: Over the past three years, Garza has averaged just 141 innings per season, and he has returned a 3.77 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP with a 7.9 K/9 mark over the same time span. Those aren't eye-popping numbers and his K/9 mark has dropped in four consecutive seasons. Garza has potential, though, as he posted a 5-3 record with a 2.52 ERA through 12 midseason starts last year. Still, he is a late-round flier in deep mixed leagues, at best.

Milwaukee Brewers SPs Matt Garza (oblique) and Kyle Lohse (ankle) both have a timetable for their returns, according to manager Ron Roenicke. Roenicke noted they are targeting Lohse's return during the team's next road trip, and hope to get Garza back in early September.
Fantasy Tip: The Brewers next road trip begins Monday, Aug. 25, which gives Lohse the opportunity to help fantasy owners down the stretch. Garza might be able to help with a few starts, so he is only worth holding in deep mixed leagues and NL-only formats.
