Chicago Cubs right-hander Matt Garza faced live hitters for
the first time since suffering his elbow injury last summer yesterday. He
looked good before cutting his session short by walking off the mound holding
his left side. While it is certainly cause for concern, manager Dale Sveum
characterized the injury as a mild lat strain and said Garza will be fine,
according to Paul Sullivan of The Chicago Tribune.
Sveum calls it a mild lat strain. Says he's going to be fine.
