Aug. 22 10:03 AM PT11:03 AM MT12:03 PM CT1:03 PM ET13:03 ET17:03 GMT1:03 10:03 AM MST12:03 PM EST12:33 PM VEN21:03 UAE12:03 PM CT-Garza lasted a season-low 3 2/3 innings in Sunday's start at Seattle, in which the veteran was tagged for six runs and nine hits.
Analysis: Garza had been pitching pretty well leading up to the contest, compiling a 3-1 record and a 3.22 ERA over his previous four starts. However, his 5.27 overall ERA, low strikeout rate and placement on a non-contending team makes him a rather unappealing option.

Analysis: Garza is 3-1 with a 3.49 ERA in his last five starts, yielding three runs or less in each outing. He has been hurt by high pitch counts, however, lasting more than sixth innings just once in his last five outings. He'll make his next start Sunday in Seattle.

Analysis: He is 1-5 with a 7.69 ERA in 10 starts against Washington and his ERA this season is up to 5.54. ''Behind in a lot of counts today and I had to pitch from behind and that's what happens,'' Garza said. ''You just put it in the back of your mind and get through it and get to the next one.''
