Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza is the probable start for the game Wednesday, April 29, against the Cincinnati Reds. Last season Garza went 2-0 with a 0.82 ERA in three outings against Cincinnati.
Fantasy Tip: Based on last season's numbers Garza is a solid FantasyScore play at $4,700 (or 9.4% of cap), but it is hard to get amped about any Milwaukee pitcher since they have gotten off to a such a lousy start.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza said he expects to have a better season this year than last Thursday, April 2, because he has rediscovered his slider.
Fantasy Tip: At 31, Garza ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is unlikely to do anything than more than what we've already seen from him. And his 2014 campaign wasn't too far off his career averages, so it is unlikely an improved slider will make a significant difference. It is worth noting it was a plus-pitch for him, though, and his runs above average when throwing his slider was as high as 13.8 in 2011, according to FanGraphs.com. All said, Garza is a streamer option in the majority of seasonal leagues and worth considering in FantasyScore contests when he has a favorable matchup.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza said has revamped his pitching mechanics in an attempt to cut down injury risks.
Fantasy Tip: Over the past three years, Garza has averaged just 141 innings per season, and he has returned a 3.77 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP with a 7.9 K/9 mark over the same time span. Those aren't eye-popping numbers and his K/9 mark has dropped in four consecutive seasons. Garza has potential, though, as he posted a 5-3 record with a 2.52 ERA through 12 midseason starts last year. Still, he is a late-round flier in deep mixed leagues, at best.
