Brewers pitcher Matt Garza won't come off the disabled list next week according to manager Ron Roenicke via a tweet Sunday from MLB.com reporter Adam McCalvy.
The 30-year-old was placed on the 15-day disabled list last week with a strained oblique. The move was retroactive to August 4, which would've made him eligible to become activated next week. He hasn't resumed throwing yet, but Garza insisted at the time of the designation that it was more "precautionary than anything" even though there's now apparently no timetable for his return.
The Brewers remain atop the NL Central heading into Sunday's series finale at home vs. the Dodgers.
Forget everything RR said about Matt Garza yesterday. RR allowed today that this will be longer than a 15-day DL stint.— Adam McCalvy (@AdamMcCalvy) August 10, 2014
