3. Greg Garza
After over five months of recovering from shoulder surgery, Greg Garza is back. He made his return to the pitch last weekend against Toronto, putting in about 70 minutes of gameplay. With Chris McCann picking up an injury last weekend, that means Garza is expected to start this Sunday. It will be his first start since May 20.

It was fun to see Garza back on the left touchline for Atlanta United against Toronto. His speed is certainly missed and it will be exciting to see him back with the first team after all this time. Just like Almiron, it will be interesting to see what kind of effect Garza can have on the team. In his 10 starts at the beginning of the season, the club went 6-3-1.
In Garza’s lone appearance against NYCFC this season, he put in a strong performance. He completed 27 of his 38 passes, logged two recoveries, an interception, and a clearance.
Oh and don’t forget, Garza scored against NYCFC in that very game.
