  • Guardians' Justin Garza: Goes unclaimed off waivers

    The Guardians outrighted Garza to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday.

    Garza was one of three Guardians players who cleared waivers Wednesday after recently being removed from the 40-man roster. The 27-year-old right-hander should still be in line for an invitation to big-league spring training, but his lack of a 40-man spot will make it tough for him to secure a spot in Cleveland's Opening Day bullpen. He made 21 relief appearances for Cleveland in 2021, submitting a 4.71 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 28.2 innings.

  • Guardians' Justin Garza: DFA'd by Guardians

    Garza was designated for assignment by the Guardians on Friday.

    Garza made his major-league debut in 2021 and logged a 4.71 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 28.2 innings across 21 appearances. However, he'll now lose his spot on the 40-man roster.

  • Indians' Justin Garza: Works two innings Sunday

    Garza allowed one run on four hits and a walk with three strikeouts in two innings during Sunday's 5-2 loss to the White Sox.

    The right-hander has covered more than one inning in just two of his seven September appearances. Garza has logged a 4.23 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 28:17 K:BB across 27.2 innings to begin his big-league career. The 27-year-old will likely remain in a low-leverage role to finish the season, although he's made noticeable improvements after a few rough patches in July and August.

  • Indians' Justin Garza: Becoming more consistent

    Garza allowed three hits and struck out two in 1.2 innings in Monday's 5-2 loss to Minnesota.

    In four of his last five appearances, Garza has managed to keep runs off the board despite allowing six hits and four walks in that span covering 5.2 innings. The right-hander has trimmed his ERA down to 3.97, but a 1.41 WHIP and 22:13 K:BB are hardly encouraging signs, albeit in a small 22.2-inning sample. The 27-year-old will likely continue to fill a low-leverage role for the final month of the season.

  • Indians' Justin Garza: Takes loss versus Minnesota

    Garza (2-1) allowed an unearned run on one hit and a walk in one-third of an inning, taking the loss versus Minnesota on Wednesday.

    Cleveland rallied to tie the game in the ninth inning, but Garza gave up a walkoff single in the 11th to take his first loss of the season. The right-hander has yielded seven runs (six earned) in his last 3.2 innings across four appearances. He owns a 4.76 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 16:9 K:BB through 17 innings as a low-leverage reliever.

  • Indians' Justin Garza: Awarded win Monday

    Garza (2-0) earned the win Monday versus Cincinnati. He allowed one run on a hit and two walks with three strikeouts over two innings.

    Garza was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on July 31, and he made his third appearance in his second stint on the big-league roster this season. The right-hander was awarded the win Monday after Sam Hentges covered only two innings as the starter. Garza has a solid 2.35 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 13:4 K:BB across 15.1 innings. He's been lucky to limit opposing batters to a .184 BABIP in the small sample, but he should be able to provide length out of the bullpen.

  • Indians' Justin Garza: Sent down Wednesday

    Garza was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday, Mandy Bell of reports.

    Garza served as a bulk reliever Wednesday and allowed a run on four hits and no walks while striking out one in 3.1 innings. He'll now return to the minors after first baseman Yu Chang was recalled in a corresponding move.

  • Indians' Justin Garza: Solid in bulk-relief role

    Garza allowed a run on four hits and struck out one in 3.1 innings during Tuesday's 9-3 loss to Houston.

    Making his first appearance since July 5, Garza was able to limit the damage to a sixth-inning RBI single by Kyle Tucker. The 27-year-old right-hander has logged 9.2 innings across four appearances, posting a 2.79 ERA, 0.72 WHIP and 5:1 K:BB in this season. A 5.13 FIP indicates he's gotten lucky so far, but Cleveland will likely continue to deploy him in multi-inning assignments.
