Matt Garza scratched from final start with shoulder soreness

1 Comment

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.
