Garza pitched 4.2 innings Sunday against the White Sox, giving up four hits and two runs along with three strikeouts in Milwaukee's 13-4 win. His spring ERA is now 5.40.

Fantasy Impact: Garza has always been a talented pitcher but has been hampered by injuries over his career. His average draft position is 347. He will be available in the later portions of your draft but is more suited for NL-only leagues or as an injury replacement waiver wire pickup.

Making his second start of the spring, Garza pitched three innings allowing two hits and giving up two earned runs against the Giants on Wednesday. Working on his new mechanics, Garza did settle down and threw a perfect third inning.

Fantasy Impact: Garza is hoping to have a healthy 2015 as durability has hampered his career over the past 10 seasons. Last year Garza missed almost a month with a left oblique strain he suffered in August. Garza did manage to pitch 163 innings last season striking out 126 batters. He has always been a talented pitcher just keep monitoring his progress in the early portions of the season and see how his health holds up.
