Brewers' right-handed SP Matt Garza has been placed on the 10-day DL with a chest contusion. Travis Shaw was activated from the paternity list in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Impact

Garza was slated to start the series finale against the Giants on Thursday afternoon. Look for Wily Peralta to potentially get the start in his place. Garza suffered the injury when he collided with first baseman Jesus Aguilar on Saturday. He may miss just one start.

Matt Garza to miss scheduled start Thursday

Matt Garza had to cut his regular bullpen session short and will miss his Thursday start as a result. He's dealing with a chest injury that was suffered during his most recent start.

Fantasy Impact

Matt Garza lasts four innings against the Dodgers on Saturday

Matt Garza allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and four walks over four innings on Saturday afternoon. He struck out two batters, and did not factor into the decision. He left the game after he collided with Jesus Aguilar at first base in the fourth inning.

Fantasy Impact

Garza will be re-evaluated on Sunday, so we'll know more about the extent of his injury as the day moves on. As for his Saturday performance, he slightly lowered his ERA from 3.98 to 3.83 and didn't allow a home run for his second straight start. If Garza misses any time, there's a chance he gets dropped in a number of mixed-leagues. There's no reason to race to get him on your team, but he is still an intriguing streamer when he's healthy so make sure he's on your watch list.

Matt Garza earns his second loss of the season on Monday

Matt Garza threw 5.2 innings of seven hit, four run ball against the Mets at Citi Field on Monday afternoon. He walked two, and struck out four batters. The effort earned him his second loss of the season.

Fantasy Impact

It wasn't that impressive, but it was better than his previous start where he allowed six runs to the Blue Jays. Garza's ERA jumped from 3.60 to 3.98, and he now has a 31/8 K/BB rate through seven starts this season. It goes in waves with Garza, as he's shown he can put together a stretch of good starts sandwiched between stretches of bad ones. Now is not the time to buy in season long leagues, but you could argue he's a nice risky tournament play in DFS contests. It'll be hard to take that risk when he faces the Dodgers in his next start on Saturday afternoon at Miller Park.

Matt Garza roughed up by the Blue Jays on Wednesday afternoon

Matt Garza allowed six earned runs on seven hits over 5.1 innings in a loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday afternoon. He allowed three home runs, and struck out five batters. It was his first loss of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Garza's ERA balooned from 2.43 to 3.60 on Wednesday, and the three home runs allowed doubled his season total from three to six. Inter-league matchups are always funky, so take this outing with a little grain of salt, but it should definitely raise an eyebrow and make most owners proceed with caution moving forward. Before Wednesday, Garza had held his own, turning in four quality starts in five outings. If he is owned in your mixed league, chances are he's being dropped for another streamer, but his next start comes against the Mets at Citi Field on Monday, and he makes for a nice streamer if you can fit him on your roster or tournament lineup in DFS contests.
