7/24 Garza day to day
Matt Garza was headed home on Tuesday to be with his wife, who is expecting the couple’s fourth child, and will not pitch this weekend for the Cubs against the Cardinals. Instead, the Cubs will go with Travis Wood, Jeff Samardzija and Paul Maholm Friday, Saturday and Sunday against St. Louis at Wrigley Field. Garza has been sidelined since coming out of Saturday’s start after three innings with cramping in his right elbow. He’s been receiving treatment, and will continue to do so in Chicago. Dale Sveum said they would re-evaluate Garza on Friday in Chicago.
