Matt Garza will remain in Tennessee for the time being to throw a bullpen session.

Cubs starting pitcher Matt Garza was expected to throw three innings or 45 pitches today for the Tennessee Smokies, but due to “dead arm” that will not happen today according to Cubs beat writer Carrie Muskat. Garza will remain with the Smokies for now to throw a bullpen session over the next couple of days.

Garza has not pitched in a game since July 21, 2012 when he lasted just three innings in St. Louis against the Cardinals. Trying to make a comeback, the righty suffered a strained left lat during a live batting practice session on February 17. Garza threw a bullpen session in Milwaukee during the series with the Brewers on Sunday before arriving in East Tennessee.

“It’s all muscular, nothing structural,” Hoyer told Muskat Tuesday. “We’ll give him a couple days, throw a bullpen and get him right back on schedule.”
