After throwing 42 pitches in his first minor-league rehab start last week Matt Garza took the mound at Triple-A yesterday and threw 54 pitches.

He recorded 10 outs, giving up one run on four hits and zero walks in 3.1 innings. He threw 37 of 54 pitches for strikes, struck out three, and according to what manager Dale Sveum told Carrie Muskat of MLB.com “he was really pumped up, everything went really well.”

Muskat reports that Garza will likely make at least two more rehab starts before being cleared to return from a strained lat muscle. He last pitched for the Cubs in July, but the impending free agent is on track to rejoin the rotation by the end of the month.

    Won’t be long before he’s pitching for the Rockies….as long as they hang around for another month.
