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.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
