God’s Wrath (Benevolence?) Watch: Matt Garza’s MRI Didn’t Reveal Serious Damage

Chicago Cubs

gods-wrathAccording to reports bouncing around Twitter, Matt Garza had an MRI on his mildly strained lat yesterday, and the results were … a mildly strained lat. Neither Garza nor the doctors seem to think it’s serious, and GM Jed Hoyer called the results “good news.”

The plan now is for him to rest for a week before throwing again, assuming he feels good. If he does, obviously his Spring schedule will be pushed back slightly, but it’s still too early to say how or whether this will impact him for the start of the regular season.

I guess is this is as good as we could have hoped for at this point, and we’ll now hope that, come next week, Garza’s back on the mound without incident.
