The Brewers placed starter Matt Garza on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday due to a strained right lat. Per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the right-hander expects to miss four to six weeks.

Garza was expected to start on Wednesday against the Giants. Taylor Jungmann will start in his place, and Tyler Cravy has been called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Garza, 32, had gone eight consecutive seasons with a sub-4.00 ERA but struggled last season. He finished with a 5.63 ERA and a 104/57 K/BB ratio over 148 2/3 innings.
