    • 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.

    • Cubs' Jaime Garcia: Struggles in Cubs debut
      By RotoWire Staff

      Garcia (3-7) recorded just one out and allowed three runs to take the loss in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals. He gave up a hit and three walks. Garcia was making his Cubs debut after getting called up from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, and it was an outing to forget. He walked the bases loaded, then gave up a one-out, two-run single to Juan Soto before getting the early hook. The veteran will likely shift to the bullpen moving forward but could get another start if the need arises.

    • Cubs' Jaime Garcia: Draws start Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Garcia is slated to start the first half of Saturday's doubleheader against Washington, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. Garcia was called up from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, and he's set to make his Cubs debut after accruing a 5.93 ERA and 1.53 WHIP with 69 strikeouts through 74.1 innings as a member of the Blue Jays this season. Cole Hamels will get the nod for the second game of the twin bill.

    • Garcia had his contract purchased from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. Garcia didn't make an appearance for Triple-A Iowa after signing a minor-league deal with Chicago at the end of August, but the Cubs were apparently impressed enough with a simulated game he threw Tuesday to add him to their roster for the stretch run. The veteran left-hander, who owns a 5.93 ERA across 74.1 big-league innings this season, figures to work in a long-relief role down the stretch.

    • Cubs' Jaime Garcia: Picked up by Cubs
      By RotoWire Staff

      Garcia signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Friday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. Garcia was released by the Blue Jays on Thursday, but he didn't have to spend a long time unemployed. Garcia will make some minor-league relief appearances over the weekend as an audition for a major-league bullpen role. He'll have to pitch better than he did for the Blue Jays if he's to earn a spot in Chicago, as he posted an ugly 5.93 ERA in 74.1 innings for the Canadian club prior to his release.
