|2009 - Matt Garza||4-3||10||10||0||0||0||0||66.2||48||28||27||8||27||60||3.65||1.13|
Garza gets his first shot at the Twins in 2009 this afternoon, and he's looking to bounce back from a rough start against the Indians as well as extracting a little bit of that frustration he's always shown for the franchise. He's still a big fastball guy who throws a pair of breaking balls, occasionally mixing in the off-speed pitch. This season he's getting more ground balls, which has helped him a little bit, but after his last start his home run rates have jumped as well. Like Liriano, Garza has a history of getting into his own head a bit, so if the Twins can jump on him early they might have some success. Allowing Garza to get into a groove is never a good thing.
