MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy reports that Matt Garza will rejoin the Brewers’ rotation on Wednesday, in time for a start against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Garza had been on the disabled list since August 4 after straining his oblique in a start against the Cardinals the previous day.

Prior to going on the disabled list, Garza had a 3.58 ERA with a 104/43 K/BB ratio in 145 2/3 innings across 23 starts.

The Brewers optioned starter Jimmy Nelson to Single-A Brevard County and recalled Alfredo Figaro from Triple-A Nashville. Per the team’s Twitter, Nelson will return to start on Monday against the Cubs.

The Tigers and free agent catcher Austin Romine have agreed to a one-year contract, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports. WFAN’s Sweeny Murti specifies that the deal is for $4.1 million.

Romine, 31, has been in the league for eight seasons, all with the Yankees. Across 1,116 trips to the plate, he has hit .239/.281/.366. However, Romine is well-regarded for his defense and game-calling abilities.

Romine will slot in as the full-time catcher for the rebuilding Tigers. They’ll have Jake Rogers and Grayson Greiner behind him.
