Matt Garza goes on Brewers’ disabled list with shoulder injury

Matt Garza’s horrible season now includes a trip to the disabled list, as the Brewers placed the struggling right-hander on the shelf with shoulder tendinitis.

Garza signed a four-year, $50 million deal with Milwaukee last offseason and was his usual self in Year 1, logging 163 innings with a 3.64 ERA. He was decent through six weeks this year, but Garza has a 6.67 ERA in his last 10 games with 49 total runs allowed in 57 innings.

Given his age, previous arm problems, and awful pitching this season it’ll be tough for the Brewers to find a taker for Garza (and his contract) via trade even if he’s able to return in the minimum 15 days.
