Birth of twins has P Matt Garza leaving Brewers for season
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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 MLB.com. "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
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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.
