Brewers to place Garza on DL; Anderson opens in rotation
MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers say they will place starter Matt Garza on the 10-day disabled list to the start the season because of a strained right groin.
The team also announced on Thursday that Chase Anderson will open the season in the rotation. Anderson joins an all right-handed starting five of Junior Guerra, Zach Davies, Wily Peralta and Jimmy Nelson.
Garza went 1-1 with an 8.59 ERA in six spring training starts. Anderson was 0-1 with a 3.77 ERA in five games, including three starts.
Anderson will start for the Brewers in an exhibition game at Miller Park on Friday against the Chicago White Sox.
