      Birth of twins has P Matt Garza leaving Brewers for season

      Pitcher Matt Garza has left the Brewers to be with his wife for the birth of their twins, and he will not return this season, per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Garza reportedly left the team on good terms with management and he's expected to be a member of the Brewers' rotation again in 2016. The veteran hurler struggled mightily this season to the tune of a 5.63 ERA and 1.57 WHIP over 148 2/3 innings, but perhaps an offseason will reinvigorate him for 2016.

      Brewers SP Matt Garza done for 2015 season

      Following another poor start on Saturday, the Brewers are shutting right-hander Matt Garza down for the rest of the season. In Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Reds, Garza allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings. He issued four walks and struck out just a pair of batters in the eventual 8-6 win. Garza is not suffering from an injury. But with the 2015 season a lost cause for the Brewers, the club has decided to evaluate their options as they prepare for the 2016 campaign. Garza will finish the season 6-14 with a 5.63 ERA--his highest mark since his rookie season in 2006. He has two more guaranteed years remaining on his current contract.

      Brewers P Matt Garza remains in rotation for now

      A bad year has turned into a terrible one for Brewers veteran starter Matt Garza over his last three outings, but Craig Counsell is not ready to remove him from the rotation. He is ready, however, to talk with Garza about his struggles. The right-hander has allowed 19 runs over his last 13 1/3 innings to raise his ERA to a rather disturbing 5.56, which ranks second-worst in the National League among qualifying starters. Garza remains listed as the probable pitcher for Thursday against visiting Pittsburgh. "We haven't sat down with Matt yet," Counsell told "We need to do that. But the way we're listed now is the way we are right now. ... The probables are accurate." Garza owned a 3.63 ERA in 100 starts over the previous four years.

      Brewers SP Matt Garza mashed again Saturday

      The consistency that had marked the career of Brewers starter Matt Garza has vanished in 2015. The right-hander who managed an ERA between 3.32 and 3.95 for eight consecutive seasons has been simply awful. He was simply awful Saturday, allowing seven runs on 11 hits in 3 2/3 innings in a lucky no-decision against Cincinnati. He walked one and struck out two. Garza managed one shutout inning in the pounding. The big blow was a three-run homer by Jay Bruce in a four-run second. His 5.56 ERA is the second-worst among qualifying National League starters this year. He has yielded a ridiculous 19 runs and 27 hits over his last 13 innings.

      Brewers Matt Garza tallies another solid outing

      Brewers starter Matt Garza continued his recent string of solid starts Wednesday, tossing seven innings of three-hit ball in what would be a no-decision as Milwaukee lost a 3-2 extra-inning affair to the Cubs. Garza allowed just two runs, equaling the fifth straight start in which he's allowed three or fewer runs, while striking out four batters. But a lack of run support prevented Garza (6-12) for winning back-to-back starts for just the second time this season.

      Brewers SP Matt Garza shows dominance in win over Brewers

      Brewers right-hander Matt Garza enjoyed one of his better performances in Thursday's start against the Padres. Garza limited the Padres to one run on two hits over seven solid innings. He walked two and struck out five, throwing 68 of his 103 pitches for strikes in the 10-1 blowout win. The only run Garza would allow on Thursday came on a solo home run by Melvin Upton in the fifth inning. That had little meaning on the outcome of the game, as the Brewers were already ahead by seven runs at that point. Garza improved to 6-12 on the year, and lowered his ERA to 4.95 with Thursday's strong outing. Garza's ERA has dipped under the 5.00 mark for the first time since back in early June. This was Garza's fourth start since returning from the disabled list with a shoulder injury. He is 2-2 with a 2.55 ERA since his July 21 comeback. "I didn't feel right the first couple of months and pitched through it," Garza said, per "I finally feel healthy. Everything has been progression. I don't have to rely on luck. I feel comfortable again."

      Brewers' Matt Garza gives up three-run HR in loss on Saturday

      Brewers pitcher Matt Garza posted a quality start on Saturday, but lost for the fifth time in his last seven outings in the 4-2 defeat to the Cubs. Garza allowed three runs on four hits over six innings of work. He walked four and struck out five, throwing 70 of his 107 pitches for strikes. Garza (5-12, 5.17 ERA) had trouble with his command in this one, but was able to limit the damage against him. The one mistake he made came on a three-run home run by the red-hot Anthony Rizzo, accounting for all three runs against Garza. Despite the fairly decent outing on Saturday, Garza has really been struggling this year. Over his past six starts, the veteran right-hander is 1-4 with a 5.40 ERA.
