``Garza will pitch out of the bullpen, but probably start one of the doubleheader games next Friday at Chicago,'' Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Thursday.
Garza is 4-6 with a 3.92 ERA in 16 starts at Rochester.
After starting 2006 at Class A, Garza quickly worked his way up to the Twins. Often relying on his fastball, he was 3-6 with a 5.76 ERA in nine starts for Minnesota last year.
``He knows he can't survive on just a fastball. Hopefully, he's worked on that,'' catcher Joe Mauer said.
Heintz appeared in 13 games for Minnesota, batting .240 with three doubles and seven RBI.
