Brewers' Matt Garza: Set to become free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garza's contract no longer carries a club option for 2018, as that was voided after he crossed a threshold of games, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

It had been widely believed that the Brewers had a $5 million option to retain Garza for 2018, but that is not the case anymore. He will be a free agent after the conclusion of the 2017 season. Garza will be available out of the bullpen over the final two games of the season. He has not posted an ERA under 4.50 since 2014, and could struggle to secure a fully guaranteed big-league deal this winter.

Brewers' Matt Garza: Likely bound for bullpen this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 his 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 | RotoWire

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.

Brewers' Matt Garza: Fails to complete three innings Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.
