Right-handed starting pitcher Matt Garza has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain, retroactive to Aug. 4, the Brewers announced Tuesday. As a corresponding move, right-handed pitcher Rob Wooten was recalled from Triple-A Nashville.

The Brewers haven't yet announced a timetable for a potential return for Garza, who left his start prematurely Sunday with the injury.

Garza, 30, is 7-7 with a 3.58 ERA (104 ERA+), 1.13 WHIP and 104 strikeouts in 145 2/3 innings this season. He signed a four-year, $50 million deal with the Brewers this past offseason.

Without Garza, it's likely the Brewers turn to Marco Estrada to rejoin the rotation. He's been pitching out of the bullpen since July 7.

This marks the fourth straight season that Garza has had a stint on the DL.
