Milwaukee Brewers beat writer Adam McCalvy reported the bad news on Tuesday the Brewers will not have the services of right handed pitcher Matt Garza for at least four to six weeks. Garza has a lat strain to his right shoulder that was injured during his last spring training start last month. The Brewers have placed Garza on the 15 day disabled list on Tuesday. Right handed starting pitcher Tyler Cravy will be called up from the Colorado Sky Sox on Tuesday to replace Garza on the Brewers roster. Garza will not be able to make his next scheduled start on Wednesday when the Brewers host the San Francisco Giants at Miller Park. Garza will be replaced by right handed pitcher Taylor Jungmann on Wednesday. To put it mildly the Brewers will miss the services of one of their best right handed starting pitchers. The good news is that Garza should be able to return to the team around the middle of May after he has completed his rehabilitation assignment with the Brewers minor league team.

Oh yeah, I forget that the Sky Sox are no longer the Rockies AAA club. Before that they were Cleveland's, back when Albert Belle played for them as Joey Belle.
