Garcia (elbow) was placed on the 60-day DL on Wednesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Garcia underwent Tommy John surgery in late October and is set to miss all of the 2017 season, so his placement on the DL was merely a formality. In moving Garcia to the 60-day DL, the Dodgers will open up a 40-man roster spot for newly-signed reliever Sergio Romo.
The Dodgers announced Thursday that Garcia underwent Tommy John surgery Oct. 25, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Garcia battled what was labeled a biceps injury throughout almost the entire 2016 season, but it seems the issue was with his UCL all along. He will miss all of 2017 but fortunately, Garcia still has youth on his side. The right-hander should easily find work once healthy, assuming he return to something close to his old self.
Garcia (biceps/knee) underwent right knee surgery Wednesday to remove small bone fragments, Ken Gurnick of MLB.comreports. Garcia of course is already out for the year with a triceps injury, so this doesn't affect his timetable. The team will hope he's ready for spring training next season.
Garcia (biceps) isn't expected to take the mound for the Dodgers again this season, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports. Garcia recently had a setback in his recovery, actually relating to one of his knees. The exact issue that's costing him the season remains a bit unclear, but unless something changes, the 25-year-old reliever will start preparing to rejoin the club in 2017.
Garcia (biceps) recently hit a setback in his rehab, and it's uncertain when he'll pitch again, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Manager Dave Roberts mentioned that Garcia's setback was related to one of his knees rather than his existing biceps injury, and while it's encouraging that his arm appears to be feeling fine, the interruption in the rehab process is obviously less than ideal. Garcia made rehab appearances for Double-A Tulsa on Thursday and Friday, so it's likely he picked up the knee ailment during the latter outing.
