News: The Brewers have mapped out a plan to get Garza (oblique) back in the rotation during the first week of September, Adam McCalvy of reports. Impact: Garza just receive clearance to resume throwing last weekend and it sounds like the Brewers will be cautious in advancing him through his program. Mike Fiers has performed extremely well in Garza's stead to this point, affording the team the flexibility to take it slow with Garza.(RotoWire, )

News: Garza (oblique) played catch for a second straight day Saturday, Adam McCalvy of reports. Impact: It's expected that the team will map out a plan for getting Garza back on the mound Sunday. Most likely, he'll miss another 10 days or so, even in the best-case scenario, which will continue to afford Mike Fiers a start every fifth day.(RotoWire, )

News: Garza (oblique) played catch for about five minutes Friday, Adam McCalvy of reports. Impact: The Brewers kept Garza shut down for over a week after he was diagnosed with an oblique strain, but he was able to start back up with some light throwing Friday. It may not sound like much, but it represents a positive first step in his recovery, though Garza may still be hard-pressed to return before the end of the month.(RotoWire, )

News: Garza (oblique) is progressing but remains without a set date to resume throwing, Adam McCalvy of reports. Impact: The Brewers have said that they will keep Garza shut down until he's completely pain-free, thus putting a return before the end of August in question. Mike Fiers pitched very well in Garza's stead Saturday and will continue to occupy his spot in the rotation for the foreseeable future. How Fiers fares in his next couple turns may dictate how aggressive the Brewers are in advancing Garza through his rehab.(RotoWire, )

News: Garza (oblique) will miss more than the minimum 15 days required by his DL stint, Adam McCalvy of reports. Impact: Manager Ron Roenicke confirmed Sunday that the oblique injury will cost Garza more than two weeks, and while a specific timetable remains uncertain, Roenicke said Garza is not going to be allowed to resume throwing until he's completely pain-free. Mike Fiers will continue to start in Garza's place after holding the Dodgers to just one run on three hits over eight innings Saturday.(RotoWire, )

News: Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said that Garza (oblique) may need more than the 15-day minimum to recover from his injury, the Associated Press reports. Impact: Thus far, Garza has been unable to throw, instead being limited to exercises. Mike Fiers, who pitched well in Garza's place Saturday, will remain in the rotation for the foreseeable future while Garza is on the mend. The timetable may also hinge on whether Garza requires a minor league rehab start prior to activation.(RotoWire, )
