Garza was knocked around in Sunday's no-decision versus the Mariners, allowing five runs on nine hits and one walk across just 3.2 innings. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

The entirety of the damage against Garza was done in the third and fourth innings, when nine hits and an error of his own ran his pitch count up to 93 before he could venture any further. Garza had a sharp 3.45 ERA over his previous five starts, but Sunday's poor outing inflated his season mark back up to 5.27. He will look to right the ship Friday against the Pirates.

Garza (4-5) allowed three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out two over five innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

After going through a rough patch of five starts in late June through mid-July, Garza has allowed two or fewer earned runs in three of his last four starts to lower an ERA that once was at 5.94 all the way down to 4.87. He was a decent fantasy option as late as 2014, but his overall performance has been poor in each of the last two seasons.

Garza allowed two runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two batters over six innings in a win over the Braves on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander was spotted an early lead and cruised to a relatively easy victory, evening his record at 4-4, although it wasn't a dominant outing by any stretch as he walked more batters than he struck out. Thursday's performance marked Garza's third quality start in his last four outings, but he owns a less-than-stellar 34:22 K:BB in 59.2 innings this year and will face his toughest test yet next week with a matchup against the Cubs in Chicago on tap.

Garza (3-4) was the winning pitcher in Saturday night's 15-6 rout of Arizona, allowing three runs (two earned) on three hits and three walks while striking out three over 6.1 frames.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old right-hander carried a two-hit shutout into the seventh inning when his best and longest outing of the season was soured by Welington Castillo's two-run shot. Despite the strong performance, Garza's ERA still sits at 5.03 on the season; he does, however, seem more comfortable in his last three starts, posting a 2-0 record and 3.16 ERA over that same span.

Garza (2-4) allowed two runs, one of which was earned, on four hits and one walk while striking out five over five innings to earn the win Sunday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Garza allowed a single runs in the third and fifth innings while the offense provided him four runs, and the bullpen was able to protect the lead to help him earn his second victory of the campaign. After giving up at least four runs in five consecutive outings, he's now allowed a total of four earned runs over his last two starts to lower his ERA to 5.32 on the year. He'll make his next start Saturday at the Diamondbacks.

Garza (1-4) allowed three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two over six innings, but received no decision Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

After allowing a pair of runs in the first inning, Garza settled down and only gave up one run in his final five innings of work, and he left the contest of the 4-3 lead. However, the bullpen was unable to hold on, leading to the no decision. This was the first quality start he's registered in his last six outings, and he now holds a 5.74 ERA to go along with a 1.68 WHIP. He'll make his next start Sunday against the Pirates.

Garza (1-4) took another loss Thursday in Pittsburgh after allowing five runs (four earned) on eight hits and two walks over five innings.

EDGE Analysis

That's four defeats in a row for Garza and five straight games in which he's given up at least four runs. The 32-year-old righty had a nice heyday in his youth, but he doesn't miss enough bats anymore and thus gets hit hard with regularity, which should be enough to leave him off most fantasy rosters.

Garza (1-3) allowed four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over 5.1 innings to take the loss Friday at the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Garza entered the sixth inning with a 3-1 lead, but he promptly gave up three runs in the next third of an inning, forcing his exit from the contest. He's now allowed at least four earned runs in each of his last four starts, raising his ERA to 5.74 to go along with a 1.72 WHIP. He'll make his next start Thursday at the Pirates.

Garza (1-2) allowed seven runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out two over 4.1 innings to take the loss Wednesday at the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Garza fell behind 4-0 in the second inning before the Brewers' offense tied the game in the third inning. However, he gave up an additional three runs before his exit, causing him to drop his second decision of the season. After two good starts to open his season, he's now allowed 15 earned runs in his last 16 innings of work over three starts to raise his ERA to 5.54 on the year. His next start will be after the All-Star break.

Garza (1-0) allowed four runs on seven hits, struck out one and walked three in a victory over the Nationals on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old has allowed a lot of base runners since making his 2016 debut on June 14, but he's kept the ERA in check, allowing five runs to score in 16 innings (2.81 ERA). Four of those runs came Saturday when he yielded 10 base runners in six frames against Washington. The ground ball often helped him out of trouble, as he induced 10 ground ball outs for the second straight outing. Garza will look to keep this going in his next start against St. Louis on Friday.
