Garza (3-3) allowed four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three batters over 5.1 innings during Monday's loss to Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

After posting a 2.43 ERA through his first five starts of the season, Garza has now allowed 20 runs over his past five outings. His 4.42 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 6.6 K/9 for the campaign are hardly go-to fantasy marks, and outside of the deepest settings, the veteran is probably best utilized in favorable matchups only as a streaming option or as a low-priced flier in daily contests. Garza projects to make a road start at SunTrust Park against the Braves next.

Garza (3-2) allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four batters through five innings during Wednesday's win over St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

The Brewers scored six runs in the first two innings, and Garza held the Cardinals to four runs through five frames to position himself for the win. He sports a 4.17 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 6.7 K/9 for the campaign, and considering his track record over the past few seasons, it will probably prove ill-advised to expect improved numbers from the veteran going forward. Garza projects to face the Pirates at Miller Park in his next start.

EDGE Analysis

As anticipated, Garza will be reinstated in order to start Wednesday's contest with the Cardinals.

To make room for Garza on the active roster, reliever Neftali Feliz was designated for assignment.

EDGE Analysis

He will miss the minimum amount of time on the 10-day DL with a chest contusion. Garza has a 3.83 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 33:12 K:BB in 44.2 innings this year, although his 4.48 xFIP and recent track record suggest that there are worse days ahead for the 33-year-old righty.

Garza was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Garza was already slated to miss his next scheduled start Thursday, but this is the final nail in the coffin. His injury doesn't seem like anything that will keep him out for an extended period of time, although his upcoming bullpen sessions will likely determine his availability to pitch the next time his turn comes around on June 14. Travis Shaw was activated from the paternity list to fill the newly vacant roster spot, although Paolo Espino seems to be in line to start in Garza's place Thursday.

Garza (chest) was unable to complete Tuesday's bullpen session and will not start Thursday's contest against the Giants, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garza left his previous start early after colliding with first baseman Jesus Aguilar, and it seems that the veteran right-hander is still feeling tight several days after the incident. It's unclear if they just plan to skip one start or if a DL stint is being considered, but more information should come forth as he works out more prior to the following scheduled start on June 14. Thursday's starter is also up in the air at this time, although Paolo Espino was a healthy scratch from his start at Triple-A earlier in the week, signaling that he could come up to make a spot start.

His next scheduled outing is Thursday against the Giants, though Wily Peralta may be called upon for a spot start if Garza's chest contusion continues to persist. The righty has a 3.83 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP through eight starts this season.
