Brewers | Matt Garza fires six scoreless

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 19:03:17 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza allowed five hits and struck out two over six scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Garza has pitched well in his first two starts. His long-term value is questionable, but he could be worth a flier in NL-only leagues.

Brewers | Matt Garza inefficient in return

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 23:04:03 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza received a no-decision in his season debut Tuesday, June 14, against the San Francisco Giants. The veteran right-hander worked just four innings, allowing one run on eight hits and one walk, while also recording five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't the prettiest of returns, as Garza needed 87 pitches to get through those four innings of work, but it could've been worse, considering the right-hander's decline in recent years for the Brewers. He was able to escape jams, as the Giants left 13 runners on base for the game. Garza isn't worth picking up just yet, but could have something to offer if he shows signs of his old self.

Brewers | Wily Peralta to minors

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 04:42:28 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta was optioned to Class AAA Colorado Springs on Sunday, June 12, to make room for SP Matt Garza (lat) on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: How the mighty have fallen, if that's a word you want to use with Peralta. He was the team's opening-game starter but has compiled a 6.68 earned run average this season. Needless to say, a change of scenery may do Peralta some good. Peralta's fantasy value has dropped significantly.

Brewers | Matt Garza to start Tuesday

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 16:33:32 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza (lat) will be activated from the disabled list in time to start against the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Garza's numbers have been in a steady decline, and you can afford to leave him on waivers and take a wait-and-see approach.

Brewers | Matt Garza close to return

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 14:48:07 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza (lat) will make one final rehab start Thursday, June 9, and will then rejoin the Brewers' starting rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Garza has yet to pitch in 2016, but his velocity and effectiveness have been headed downward over the last few seasons. He had a 5.63 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 6.3 K/9 in 25 starts for Milwaukee last season. With limited strikeout upside and while pitching in a hitter's park, there's not much to like about Garza in mixed fantasy leagues these days.

Brewers | Matt Garza rehab update

Sat, 28 May 2016 11:52:28 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza (lat) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Class A Wisconsin Tuesday, May 31. If all goes well, he is hoping to return to the parent club's starting rotation June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Garza went 6-14 with a 5.63 ERA in 26 games (25 starts) for the Brewers in 2015 but is likely to step into a starting role once he is healthy enough to return, which speaks volumes about the rest of the team's rotation. If he performs well in his first few outings, the 32-year-old right-hander could be worthy of consideration for NL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues.

Brewers | Matt Garza set for bullpen session

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:49:49 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza (lat) will throw a 60-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, May 25, and will then move to live batting practice Saturday, May 28. Garza said he's had no setbacks and is aiming for a return in mid-June.

Fantasy Tip: Garza should have a rotation spot to return to, but you'd have to be really desperate for a starting arm in a cavernous mixed or NL-only league to consider adding him. Garza has yet to pitch this season and had an ugly 5.63 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and just 6.3 strikeouts per nine innings with Milwaukee in 2015.

Brewers | No setbacks during Matt Garza's bullpen

Thu, 19 May 2016 15:11:04 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza (lat) said his bullpen session went well Thursday, May 19, and his next one is scheduled for Saturday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Garza returned an unimpressive 5.63 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 6.3 K/9 through 148 2/3 innings last season, and he shouldn't be trusted outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Stay tuned for updates as he works his way back into the mix for the Brewers.

Brewers | Matt Garza, Corey Knebel set for bullpens

Wed, 18 May 2016 14:59:31 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza (lat) and RP Corey Knebel (oblique) will throw their first bullpen sessions since sustaining injuries Thursday, May 19, and Friday, May 20, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: There is very limited fantasy value here, and even in NL-only formats, neither hurler are must-add arms. Knebel does have some strikeout upside given his career 10.5 K/9 through 59 innings, but you still might want to see him prove his health on the mound before acquiring his services.

Brewers | Matt Garza close to mound work

Tue, 17 May 2016 23:10:12 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza (lat) could throw off a mound this week. He has been out all season with a right lat injury.

Fantasy Tip: Garza's stuff has regressed since his younger, hard-throwing days. He's only a depth option in NL-only leagues for now.
