God’s Wrath Watch: Matt Garza Getting a Fresh Scan on His Elbow

Chicago Cubs News

Matt Garza continues to recover from the “stress reaction” in his elbow, which nominally dates back to his pre-trade-deadline shortened start against the Cardinals back in July, but which probably is the kind of thing that develops slowly over time.

So far, all signs are that the recovery is going well, but we’re going to get a new data point soon. Garza is set to have another scan of his elbow this week, per ESPNChicago, and that scan will allow the Cubs to better plot out his plan for the next few months. I suspect he’ll do some light throwing before Spring Training, but we’re not likely to hear of him doing his full array until February or March. The scan is just part of his regular check-up program, by the way, so there’s no additional reason for concern.

For his part – on Twitter, I mean – Garza says he’s getting ready, and doesn’t say anything that would raise your eyebrow about his health.


Hopefully the scan turns up clean.
