Brewers right-hander Matt Garza was scratched from his final start of the season tomorrow with shoulder soreness, so rookie Jimmy Nelson will take his place against the Cubs.
That means Garza finishes the first season of a four-year, $50 million contract with a 3.64 ERA in 27 starts and a 126/50 K/BB ratio in 163 innings. Right in line with his career numbers and for the third straight season he’ll fail to crack 170 innings.
On Monday, the Brewers unveiled a familiar logo and new jerseys to help celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise. They kickstarted it with a video:
Then they showed various members of the club, including Ryan Braun and Keston Hiura, modeling their new uniforms, which featured the familiar ball-in-mitt logo.
The Brewers are not the only team to to back to a classic. The Padres are bringing back the brown as well. Two very good choices.
