Downright ebullient out of Spring Training, Garza is searching for that good feeling in the regular season. In a win against the Cardinals, he was forced to work almost exclusively with his fastball. The slider remains a project.

Wood is coming off his first win, in which he threw seven scoreless innings, holding the Reds to three hits. The key was being able to locate his fastball. He's 5-7 with a 4.28 ERA in 14 games vs. the Pirates.
