Matt Garza picks up wins despite five walks

Matt Garza (6-6) didn't have command of the strike zone on Sunday walking five Reds' hitters while giving up five hits and four runs (three earned) in 5 1/3 innings. However, the Brewers' offense gave him a lead on their way to a 7-4 victory giving Garza his sixth win of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Garza has had back-to-back shaky starts for the Brewers allowing 11 runs with seven walks and five home runs. Garza will take his 5.06 ERA into a road start at Coors Field next Sunday. He should be nowhere near a starting lineup for that matchup.

Matt Garza shelled for eight runs in loss

Matt Garza pitched 3.1 innings Tuesday, allowing eight runs on eight hits. He walked two and struck out three. His record now stands at 5-6.

Fantasy Impact

Garza surrendered four home runs in just 3.1 innings, including a grand slam to Brian Dozier. He had been pitching well as of late, but it was only a matter of time until the other shoe dropped. His next start comes Sunday against the Reds.

Matt Garza picks up win in return from disabled list

Matt Garza pitched 5.2 innings Thursday against the Cardinals, allowing one run on four hits while walking two and striking out four.

Fantasy Impact

Garza lowered his ERA to 3.68 after this outing, and while the inning totals and strikeout numbers aren't ideal Garza is proving himself to be a viable streaming option against favorable matchups. He has a two-start week next week against the Twins and Reds, and could certainly be worth an add for owners in need.

Matt Garza (leg) placed on 10-day DL

The Milwaukee Brewers have placed right-handed starting pitcher Matt Garza on the 10-day DL with a right lower leg strain. The move is retroactive to July 23.

Fantasy Impact

Garza was scheduled to start Thursday against the Nationals but Michael Blazek will start in his place. Garza has been solid this season with a 3.83 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 15 starts. A timetable for his return is currently unknown.

Matt Garza allows two runs in loss

Matt Garza pitched five innings Friday against the Phillies, allowing two runs on three hits while walking three and striking out four. His record falls to 4-5.

Fantasy Impact

Garza gave up a two run home run to Freddy Galvis in the first, but kept the Phillies off the board afterwards. Still, this is a bland performance typical of Garza. He can be streamed against favorable matchups, but offers practically no upside. His next start comes on the road against the Nationals.
