Player Notes
Brewers activated RHP Matt Garza from the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: Garza will return to the Brewers' starting rotation on Wednesday at Wrigley Field after missing about a month with a left oblique strain. He was in a groove before the injury and should be a decent source of fantasy value down the stretch. The 30-year-old righty has a 3.58 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 104/43 K/BB ratio in 145 2/3 innings this season.

Matt Garza (oblique) has been cleared to rejoin the Brewers' rotation Wednesday versus the Cubs.

Advice: Garza, out since August 4 with a left oblique strain, threw all of his pitches in a successful simulated game Friday evening in San Francisco. Jimmy Nelson was optioned to the minors on Saturday afternoon and will return as a reliever when rosters expand, freeing up a rotation spot for Garza.

Matt Garza (oblique) threw a successful simulated game on Friday, and was able to use all of his pitches effectively.

Advice: The Brewers have been hopeful that he would be able to rejoin the rotation without needing a minor league rehab assignment, and this is a huge step in that direction. With Mike Fiers pitching exceptionally, it's anticipated that he will bump Jimmy Nelson to the bullpen upon his return.

Matt Garza (oblique) could rejoin the Brewers' rotation without making a rehab start.

Advice: It was reported earlier Tuesday that Garza's next step would be to begin a rehab assignment, but apparently it might not be necessary. The Brewers are expected to officially make a decision Wednesday regarding the right-hander's next step, which will either be a rehab start or a simulated game. Either way, he could be activated sometime next week. Jimmy Nelson is likely to be bumped to the bullpen.

Matt Garza's (oblique) next step is to begin a rehab assignment.

Advice: It's not clear when or where that rehab assignment will begin, but Garza threw a bullpen session on Sunday and that was apparently enough to convince the Brewers he was ready for game action. The veteran right-hander has been on the shelf since early August with a left oblique strain.

Matt Garza (oblique) threw a successful bullpen session on Sunday.

Advice: Garza was able to mix in all of his pitches and didn't feel anything in his strained oblique. He's expected to go harder in his next session on Tuesday and looks to be nearing a minor league rehab assignment.
