The Milwaukee Brewers have placed starting pitcher Matt Garza on the disabled list before he even got to his first start.
Garza had right shoulder tightness during his last exhibition start against the Houston Astros. His trip to the DL is dated back to April 2, the day after he suffered a right lat strain.
The Brewers are calling up Tyler Cravy to add help to their bullpen. Because of a pair of off days coming up, the Brewers won’t need a fifth starter for a while.
Garza is coming off a 6-14 season with a 5.63 ERA which led to a demotion to the bullpen.
Taylor Jungmann will move up in the rotation and pitch the series finale against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday.
