Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza (shoulder) was put on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendonitis Monday, July 6, and RP Corey Knebel was recalled from Class AAA Colorado Springs in a corresponding move. The DL stint is retroactive to July 3.
Fantasy Tip: Garza ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) should be dropped in all shallow leagues if he was still owned. He was having a rough season with a 4-10 record, a 5.55 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP in 16 starts. It's unknown who will replace him in the starting rotation. Stay tuned.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza allowed six runs and a career-high 13 hits in 6 2/3 innings Tuesday, June 16, in a 7-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals. He is 1-5 at home this year.
Fantasy Tip: Garza ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is an example of why you should watch matchups in daily fantasy leagues. Garza should be avoided when he pitches at Miller Park, as his record isn't exactly spotless.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza heads into his start Thursday, June 11, against the Washington Nationals looking for his season-high third consecutive victory.
Fantasy Tip: Garza has allowed just one earned run over the past 12 innings, but he has a total of four strikeouts. FantasyScore owners ($4,100; or 8.2% of cap) could view him as a solid mid-level option at home, but keep in mind he isnít going to rack up high strikeout totals and he has a difficult matchup.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza allowed 10 runs on 10 hits over 3 1/3 innings in a 14-1 loss to the New York Mets Saturday, May 16.
Fantasy Tip: Garza ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) followed his best outing of the year with his worst, and his ERA now stands at 5.72. He has also allowed at least one home run in six straight starts and isn't an appealing option at FantasyScore right now.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza is the probable start for the game Wednesday, April 29, against the Cincinnati Reds. Last season Garza went 2-0 with a 0.82 ERA in three outings against Cincinnati.
Fantasy Tip: Based on last season's numbers Garza is a solid FantasyScore play at $4,700 (or 9.4% of cap), but it is hard to get amped about any Milwaukee pitcher since they have gotten off to a such a lousy start.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza said he expects to have a better season this year than last Thursday, April 2, because he has rediscovered his slider.
Fantasy Tip: At 31, Garza ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is unlikely to do anything than more than what we've already seen from him. And his 2014 campaign wasn't too far off his career averages, so it is unlikely an improved slider will make a significant difference. It is worth noting it was a plus-pitch for him, though, and his runs above average when throwing his slider was as high as 13.8 in 2011, according to FanGraphs.com. All said, Garza is a streamer option in the majority of seasonal leagues and worth considering in FantasyScore contests when he has a favorable matchup.

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.
