MILWAUKEE (AP) — Starting pitcher Matt Garza has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Milwaukee Brewers with a strained muscle in his back.

Right-handed pitcher Tyler Cravy was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs to replace Garza.

The veteran right-hander departed an exhibition game start Friday in the fourth inning with what right shoulder tightness.

Garza was 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA in six starts in spring training.
