Cubs | Matt Garza excels in rehab outing

Chicago Cubs SP Matt Garza (lat) logged six shutout innings Thursday, May 16, in a rehab start for Triple-A Iowa. He allowed two hits and struck out six while not allowing a walk. He's on schedule to join the big-league club sometime next week. When Garza comes back, P Carlos Villanueva looks like the most realistic rotation casualty. Though manager Dale Sveum hasn't shut down the idea of a six-man rotation, it's unlikely to happen in the long term.

Fantasy Tip: He'll probably have around two months to work back into form so the Cubs can showcase him for a possible late-July trade. Villanueva can be dropped in mixed leagues when Garza re-establishes his rotation spot. Scott Feldman has pitched relatively well lately, and Villanueva's past bullpen experience is actually working against his fantasy value here.
