Matt Garza lasts four innings in his first start off the disabled list

Matt Garza lasted four innings in his first start off the disabled list on Monday against the Reds. He allowed four hits, four runs (one earned) while walking three and striking out two batters. He did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Garza threw 93 pitches in his season debut, 57 of them for strikes. It wasn't the most encouraging start, and a couple of errors made it look much worse for Garza. He'll still get plenty of opportunities to start as long as he's healthy, and he could be an interesting tournament play in DFS contests if he can put together a string of average starts. He'll get his next opportunity to toe the rubber when the Brewers take on the Braves at Miller Park on Sunday.

Matt Garza strikes out five Dodgers over 3.2 innings on Tuesday

Matt Garza struck out five batters over 3.2 innings in his fifth Spring Training start of the season on Tuesday. He allowed six hits, one earned run and two walks. He did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Through five starts this spring, Garza has a 6.57 ERA and a 2.11 WHIP over 12.1 innings. His spring numbers have never been that great, so don't read too much into what you see here in 2017, but that doesn't mean he's going to morph into a viable mixed-league asset once the season starts. The Brewers will give Garza every opportunity to perform in the starting rotation this season, and they would love to trade him for a mid-level prospect at some point during the season if he can put up respectable numbers. Garza is in the final year of a four year contract that contains a vesting option for 2018.

Matt Garza earns his sixth win of the season on Monday evening

Matt Garza held the Rangers to three runs on six hits over six innings in Texas on Monday evening. He walked one, and struck out three on his way to earning his sixth win of the season.

Fantasy Impact

The win was a breath of fresh air for Garza, who had earned losses in his two previous starts. The Brewers currently have a six man rotation so this was Garza's final start of the season barring a change during the next five games. He'll finish the season with a 4.51 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and a 70/36 strikeout-to-walk rate over 101.2 innings pitched this season. He's a risky NL-only option at best headed into 2017.

Matt Garza earns his eighth loss of the season on Tuesday evening

Matt Garza surrendered five runs on eight hits over four innings against the Pirates at Miller Park on Tuesday evening. He walked two, and struck out three batters.

Fantasy Impact

Garza's ERA now sits at 4.52 on the season. Tuesday's outing ended a streak of four straight starts with one earned run or less for the veteran righty. He'll look to bounce back when he faces the Reds at Miller Park on Sunday afternoon

Matt Garza earns his seventh loss of the season on Tuesday

Matt Garza allowed five runs (one of them earned) on eight hits over five innings to the Reds on Tuesday evening in Cincinnati. He struck out three batters without issuing a single walk and threw 95 pitches, 61 of them for strikes.

Fantasy Impact

In his last four starts, 12 runs have scored with only three of them being charged to Garza. He has given up a home run in each of the last four starts, and has a 25/7 strikeout to walk rate during that span. The Brewers will continue to start Garza down the stretch, and he's either a target for home runs, or a sneaky tournament play in daily fantasy games if his offense can help him get a win.
