Garza (3-4) struck out four and allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings in a loss to Atlanta on Saturday. Over his last six starts, Garza has allowed 23 runs in 31.1 innings with a 1-4 record. Saturday's outing was also the first start during that stretch where he completed six innings of work. The veteran's 4.43 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 6.5 K/9 aren't go-to fantasy marks, and he's probably best left to cavernous settings going forward. A home start against the Marlins is up next for Garza.
Garza (3-3) allowed four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three batters over 5.1 innings during Monday's loss to Pittsburgh. After posting a 2.43 ERA through his first five starts of the season, Garza has now allowed 20 runs over his past five outings. His 4.42 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 6.6 K/9 for the campaign are hardly go-to fantasy marks, and outside of the deepest settings, the veteran is probably best utilized in favorable matchups only as a streaming option or a low-priced flier in daily contests. Garza projects to make a road start at SunTrust Park against the Braves next.
Garza (3-2) allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four batters through five innings during Wednesday's win over St. Louis. The Brewers scored six runs in the first two innings, and Garza held the Cardinals to four runs through five frames to position himself for the win. He sports a 4.17 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 6.7 K/9 for the campaign, and considering his track record over the past few seasons, it will probably prove ill-advised to expect improved numbers from the veteran going forward. Garza projects to face the Pirates at Miller Park in his next start.
Garza (chest) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday. As anticipated, Garza will be reinstated in order to start Wednesday's contest with the Cardinals. In his first test since incurring the injury, the veteran right-hander will face off against St. Louis righty Mike Leake. To make room for Garza on the active roster, reliever Neftali Feliz was designated for assignment.
Garza (chest) will come off the DL to start Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. He will miss the minimum amount of time on the 10-day DL with a chest contusion. Garza has a 3.83 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 33:12 K:BB in 44.2 innings this year, although his 4.48 xFIP and recent track record suggest that there are worse days ahead for the 33-year-old righty.
