Matt Garza takes the mound today in round two of Trade Showcasing in Milwaukee (I kid, kind of), and he gets Dioner Navarro behind the plate. He also gets Brian Bogusevic in left field again today, with Alfonso Soriano on the bench. Two games in a row? Is that just rest, or is something wrong? Soriano is expected to be the primary DH for the six-game AL swing starting tomorrow, so we’ll see what happens.
