Cubs' Garza throws 66 pitches in rehab assignment

Posted: Updated:

KODAK, Tenn. (AP) - Chicago Cubs pitcher Matt Garza worked 3 1-3 scoreless innings and threw 66 pitches Saturday in a rehabilitation assignment for AA Tennessee.

Garza, who hasn't pitched in a big league game since July 21, gave up three hits, struck out two and walked two against Birmingham in the Southern League game. He also made a diving catch of a bunt attempt.

Garza said he threw each of his different pitches and that "everything felt good."

"I feel like I'm ready to go," said Garza, who expects to make at least one more minor league appearance to increase his pitch count.

This was the third minor league start for Garza, who missed the last part of the 2012 season with an elbow injury. The righty came to spring training healthy but strained a lat muscle while throwing batting practice.
