Sweet: Matt Garza is Coming Back Next Week

Chicago Cubs News

anthony rizzo matt garza pie faceAs expected/hoped-for after his dominant fourth rehab start on Thursday for AAA Iowa, Matt Garza is finally going to make his season debut for the Cubs next week in Pittsburgh.

After a stress reaction in his elbow ended his 2012 season in July, and after a lat injury end his Spring Training before it began, we’ll finally get to see Garza back on the mound for the Cubs on Tuesday against the Pirates.

With the activation, Carlos Villanueva will be moved to the bullpen, as expected, Dale Sveum confirmed to the media. That means some of the fringier guys in the bullpen – mainly Shawn Camp – could be pitching for their jobs over the next three days. When Garza is activated, someone’s going to have to go.
