    • The Brewers named Aaron Wilkerson as their starter for Wednesday's series finale with the Pirates, likely meaning that Garza will remain in the bullpen this week. The struggling Garza was bypassed for a start last Friday against the Marlins, with manager Craig Counsell instead turning to reliever Jeremy Jeffress to start what ended up being a bullpen game. After serving as a member of the rotation at Double-A Biloxi for the bulk of the season, Wilkerson should be able to offer the Brewers more innings than Jeffress did in what will be Wilkerson's first major-league start, but even if the rookie falters in the outing, it's unlikely the team would go back to Garza in a rotation role at any other point during the final two weeks of the season. After Wednesday's contest, the Brewers will only require a fifth starter once more in the penultimate game of the regular season, and if the team is still in playoff contention at that point, Counsell would probably lean on one of his other four starters on short rest rather than turn to Garza. The veteran right-hander made his first relief appearance of the season last Saturday, tossing 1.2 scoreless innings.

    • Brewers' Matt Garza: Not starting Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Garza will not start Wednesday's game against the Pirates. The Brewers will instead give the ball to Chase Anderson on short rest and presumably use Thursday's off day to skip Garza this time through the rotation. With Jimmy Nelson (shoulder) out for the rest of the season, Garza should return to a starting role in the near future, but he's firmly out of the discussion in mixed leagues.

    • Garza (6-9) gave up five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two over 2.2 innings in a losing effort against the Reds on Wednesday. The Brewers were hoping that an extended rest between appearances would lead to better results for Garza, but that wasn't the case. While he managed to keep the Reds off the board through two, Garza fell apart in the third, allowing four straight hits followed by a walk. Milwaukee could turn elsewhere -- possibly to Brent Suter or Junior Guerra -- the next time through the rotation.

    • Brewers' Matt Garza: Set to start Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Garza will start Wednesday's game against the Reds. Garza is set to reenter the Brewers' rotation after having his last start skipped. The 33-year-old has struggled over his last five starts, compiling a 9.28 ERA and 15:16 K:BB in 21.1 innings, but the Brewers are hoping the extra rest will help him turn in a better effort Wednesday.

    • Manager Craig Counsell said Garza will no longer start Sunday's game against the Nationals, but he's still expected to remain in the team's rotation down the stretch, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Garza has struggled mightily over his past five starts, compiling a 9.28 ERA and 15:16 K:BB over 21.1 innings of work, so the Brewers will skip his next turn in the rotation as they allow the 33-year-old to gather himself. It's unclear who will start in his place Sunday, but Brent Suter (shoulder) and Junior Guerra appear to be the likely options. While Counsell hasn't confirmed when Garza will make his next start, he said he expects the veteran right-hander to see some starts in in September as the Brewers continue to reshuffle their rotation.
