Garza (shoulder) is expected to start the Brewers' fourth game after the All-Star break, July 21 against Cleveland, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

A right shoulder injury forced Garza onto the shelf earlier this month, but it sounds like he will slot back into the rotation after missing just a little over the minimum 15 days required by his DL stint. Garza has struggled to a 5.55 ERA so far this season, but his xFIP is more than 130 points lower at 4.22.

Garza (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday.

Garza struggled in his recent starts, allowing four or more runs in each of his last five starts and raising his ERA to 5.55 on the season. The team hasn't officially announced who will start Tuesday in his place, but Tyler Cravy or Jimmy Nelson seem the two likely candidates. The Brewers added Corey Knebel to the 25-man roster in a corresponding move.

Garza took the loss Saturday, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks over six innings, striking out two.

His record falls to 4-10, and his ERA rises to 5.52 with another poor effort. Garza's now given up 20 runs (17 earned) and five home runs over his last three starts, and while his contract will keep him in the Brewers' rotation for now, there's little reason for you to make the same mistake on your fantasy roster. He'll next take the mound on Thursday in Philadelphia.

Garza was charged with 10 runs (seven earned) on 13 hits over 5.1 innings in a 10-4 loss to Colorado on Sunday. He struck out four and did not walk a batter.

The 31-year-old has now been batted around for 13 hits in back-to-back games, but unlike in his previous outing, Garza only allowed one home run Sunday. Instead, Garza was abused by a spattering of bloop hits and seeing-eye singles throughout the game, as the Rockies only recorded three extra-base hits during his time on the mound. While the rumor mill suggests Garza could be dealt before the deadline, his prolonged stretch of poor play might make a trade difficult for Milwaukee. He currently lines up to face the Twins on Saturday.

Garza was hammered Tuesday by the Royals, as he gave up six runs on 13 hits over 6.2 innings. He struck out three and didn't walk a batter.

Garza took his lumps as he threw 105 pitches to help out an overworked Brewers bullpen. He served up a pair of home runs and has now given up 13 in as many starts. Garza last posted an ERA above 4.00 in 2006 in a partial season with the Twins; his 2015 ERA is up to 5.07 after Tuesday's outing.

Garza pitched six innings Thursday against the Nationals, giving up five runs -- two earned -- and eight hits while collecting seven strikeouts.

Garza had a two game win streak heading into Thursday's outing, but the Nationals scored three unearned runs and left Garza with a no-decision. The 31-year-old, who had a rough May (a 6.34 ERA and four losses), has a 2.08 ERA and a 10:0 K:BB ratio in 13 innings in the month of June. He'll look to keep it going in his next start when he faces off against Kansas City on Tuesday.

Garza won his fourth game of the season Saturday, giving up just one run on six hits over seven innings. He struck out three.

After working five innings of emergency relief on May 31 in a 17-inning marathon against the Diamondbacks, Garza returned to the rotation with his best start in almost a month. He's still got a 5.09 ERA though, and his next scheduled turn on Thursday could be a tough one, at home against the Nationals.

Garza was used as a relief pitcher Sunday when the Brewers ran out of other competent arms to use at the start of the 13th inning. He will not make his start Monday, and it's unclear when Garza's next start will come.

Mike Fiers will have his start moved up from Tuesday to Monday. This move will make Fiers a two-start pitcher for the coming week, and Garza will be robbed of the two-start honor, so it might be best to remove Garza from weekly lineups in deep leagues if he's already slotted in there.

Garza allowed five earned runs over five innings and took the loss as the Brewers fell to the Giants on Tuesday night. He allowed eight hits, including two home runs, and posted a 7:3 K:BB ratio in the game.

Garza was not on top of his game Tuesday, and he saw his ERA rise to 6.00 in the process. Most of that damage came in a May 16 start in which he allowed 10 earned runs, but he owns just a sub-par 4.70 ERA in his other nine starts. He will try to get on track in his next start against an Arizona squad that he has limited to 10 earned runs over 34.2 innings (2.60 ERA) in five starts since 2012.

Garza allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three in 6.1 innings Thursday against the Braves.

Garza dropped to 0-4 with a 4.93 ERA in six career starts against Atlanta. He was coming off a 14-1 loss last Saturday in which he allowed 10 hits and 10 runs at the New York Mets. Garza's next start is scheduled for Tuesday against San Francisco.
