(WNFL)- Brewers' starter Matt Garza says his strained left oblique muscle is not as bad as his last one in 2013, which kept him out for the first seven weeks of the season. Garza says he has a better range of motion this time -- and it's easier to function than it was during his last oblique injury with the Chicago Cubs. Garza was put on the 15-day disabled list yesterday. Brewers' manager Ron Roenicke is hopeful that the veteran right-hander will be out for no longer than that. Still, the skipper says it will be awhile before Garza can throw. He's 7-and-7 this year -- but he's been hot lately, limiting hitters to a .119 batting average in his last three starts with a stingy ERA of .86. Reliever Rob Wooten was recalled from Triple-"A" Nashville to take Garza's roster spot. Garza's next scheduled start is on Saturday at home against the LA Dodgers. Roenicke says he's looking at several options -- including former starter Marco Estrada, and recalling Mike Fiers from Triple-"A" Nashville.
