Garrett was placed on the 10-day disabled list Thursday with right hip inflammation.
The southpaw teased tantalizing upside early in the year but has fallen back to earth with a 6.00 ERA over eight starts. The Reds have planned on monitoring Garrett's workload as the former two-sport athlete continues to develop his baseball acumen, but he'll have to wait for his next chance as he goes on the mend.
Garrett (3-4) allowed seven runs on seven hits and one walk across five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Indians. He struck out two.
Garrett was primarily a victim of the long ball in this one, allowing four home runs to account for five of the runs charged to his record. His struggles can be partially attributed to getting behind in the count, as he struggled to find the strike zone at times and became predictable to the formidable offense he faced. Garrett was sent down to Triple-A Louisville earlier this month in an attempt to keep him fresh, but he has been battered to the tune of 13 earned runs in nine innings since returning. He is currently slated to start Sunday against the Phillies, but another outing of this nature could cause the club to rethink their immediate plans for the left-hander.
Garrett (3-3) allowed six runs on five hits and four walks while striking out five batters through just four innings during Thursday's loss to the Cubs.
This was a daunting matchup for the rookie lefty, and with Chicago scoring 16 runs through the first two games of the series, the Cubs kept it rolling early in Thursday's game. Garrett has flashed tremendous upside, but he's also had a couple rough outings. For the season, the freshman sports a 5.18 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 7.4 K/9. Being selective with his matchups going forward is likely the best approach to utilizing Garrett. If he sticks in the rotation, Garrett projects to make his next start against Cleveland, which will be another difficult test.
The southpaw was sent down on May 7 as the Reds continue an effort to manage his major-league innings. Garrett made just one appearance with the Bats, striking out every batter he faced in two frames last Friday. The Cubs pose a legit threat, which could pile on Garrett's recent growing pains that ballooned his ERA to 4.25. The former two-sport athlete is a fine pickup in deep mixed leagues, though, as a matchup play for better spots.
Garrett is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Thursday to start against the Cubs, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Garrett is set to rejoin the Reds' rotation on Thursday after being sent back to Triple-A and making one appearance there. He struck out every batter he faced during the two-inning outing. We'll see how the 25-year-old fares in his second stint with the big-club this year, as he spun a 4.25 ERA with a 28:14 K:BB through 36 innings (six starts) earlier in the year.
