Cubs' Jaime Garcia: Records hold in win over Reds
Garcia struck out one in a scoreless eighth inning and recorded a hold in a 3-2 win over the Reds on Friday.
With the Cubs dealing with injuries to relievers Brandon Morrow and now Pedro Strop, who strained his hamstring Thursday, Garcia looks like he could take on a more significant role in Chicago's bullpen. While the veteran righty has a subpar 6.19 ERA this season, he had a more respectable 4.41 ERA as a starter in 2017, and Cubs manager Joe Maddon likely values his experience. Garcia doesn't figure to be in the mix for saves with Morrow and Strop out, but he could grab a few more holds the rest of the way.
