Garcia was traded from the Rangers to the Athletics on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. The Athletics also received Elvis Andrus and cash considerations from the Rangers while Texas picked up Khris Davis, catcher Jonah Heim and minor league right-handed pitcher Dane Acker in the deal.
Garcia is on the move once again. The 28-year-old was claimed off waivers by the Rangers in November but could now serve as the Athletics' primary backup behind the plate to begin the 2021 campaign. Garcia didn't appear in the majors in 2020 but hit .143 with two home runs and five RBI across 46 plate appearances with San Francisco in 2019.
