Matt Garza placed on DL

— -- Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Matt Garza was placed on the disabled list with a strained left oblique, the team announced Tuesday.

Garza was injured during Sunday's game against the Cardinals, and the right-hander exited in the seventh inning of a 3-2 loss.

The Brewers lead the NL Central by one game over the Cardinals entering Tuesday's play.

The move was retroactive to Monday. The Brewers recalled right-hander Rob Wooten from Triple-A Nashville.

"It was bad enough where I had to take myself out of the game, and I don't do that," Garza said Sunday. "There's too much left in the season, and I thought I'd make the smart play."

Garza is 7-7 with a 3.58 ERA and 104 strikeouts this season.
