Garza Finally Starts Rehab Assignment

PEARL, Miss. (AP) - Chicago Cubs pitcher Matt Garza pitched 2 2-3 innings in his first rehabilitation start, giving up one run, one hit and two walks for Double-A Tennessee against Mississippi.

The 29-year-old right-hander threw 42 pitches, three short of his limit, on a soggy afternoon after a 1 1/2-hour rain delay.

Garza last pitched for the Cubs on July 21, missing the rest of the season with an elbow injury.

He came to spring training healthy but stopped pitching in mid-February after pulling a muscle in his back while throwing batting practice. His first rehab assignment was scheduled for last week, but that was delayed when he felt some soreness in his arm.
