Chicago, IL ( - The Milwaukee Brewers activated starting pitcher Matt Garza from the 15-day disabled list Monday, one of five players added to the team as rosters expanded.

Garza, sidelined since August 3 by a strained left oblique, is slated to start Wednesday's game against the Chicago Cubs.

The right-hander has put together a solid first season in Milwaukee, compiling a 7-7 record with a 3.58 earned run average over 23 starts.

Milwaukee also recalled pitcher Jimmy Nelson, who will take the ball for Monday's opener of a three-game series with the Cubs, from Single-A Brevard County. Outfielder Logan Schafer also rejoined the team after being recalled from Triple-A Nashville.

Additionally, pitcher Wei-Chung Wang was activated from the 15-day DL and catcher Matt Pagnozzi had his contract selected from Nashville.

Wang, a Rule 5 draft pick by the Brewers during the offseason, has not pitched since July 10 due to tightness in his left shoulder.
