Matt Garza is eligible to return from the disabled list Friday and the Cubs were initially hoping his elbow injury would be healed enough for him to face the Cardinals this weekend, but Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago says those plans have been scratched.
Garza threw from flat ground Monday and said afterward that “everything felt great,” but instead he’ll remain on the DL and throw bullpen sessions today and Saturday.
Acquired from the Rays for a five-prospect package in January, Garza led the league with 11.0 strikeouts per nine innings prior to being shut down on May 18.
