CHICAGO -- Because of inclement weather expected in the area, Matt Garza's rehab start for Class A Kane County has been canceled and he will throw a simulated game on Friday when the Cubs travel to Milwaukee.

Garza is still expected to throw two innings, about 35 pitches.

The right-hander is coming back after straining his left lat during a live batting-practice session Feb. 17 in Spring Training. He will make three to four rehab starts, and his next stop will likely be with Double-A Tennessee.

Third baseman Ian Stewart's rehab has also been slowed by weather. He's been playing with Triple-A Iowa, working his way back after straining his left quad in February.

"They got rained out [Wednesday]," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. "He was supposed to play three nine-inning games in a row, and they got rained out [Wednesday] and rained out [Thursday] already. It's still a slow process."
