Garcia (2-5) allowed four runs on four hits and four walks while striking out four over five-plus innings in Tuesday's loss to the Rays. The Rays collected their first runs of the evening on a Wilson Ramos two-run blast in the third inning and tacked an additional two runs onto Garcia's line in the sixth after the starter issued a walk and a double to the first two batters of the frame before being lifted from the contest. Both batters eventually came around to score, inflating Garcia's ERA to a disappointing 5.71 mark on the year. He'll face a tough test in his upcoming start Tuesday against the Braves.
Garcia threw six innings Thursday, yielding one run on four hits while striking out six and walking three in a 5-4 win over the Orioles. It wasn't the prettiest stat line but it gets the job done. Toronto couldn't give him much run support until a ninth-inning rally so he wouldn't factor in to the decision in this one. The 31-year-old lefty lowered his season ERA to 5.57 alongside a 50:24 K:BB ratio in 53.1 innings. Garcia will take the mound early next week in Tampa Bay.
Garcia (2-4) lasted just 1.2 innings Friday, allowing four runs on seven hits while striking out one as he took the loss versus Detroit. The Tigers got to Garcia early on, as they tagged him for four runs in the second inning before he was pulled from the game. The 31-year-old has been a liability on the mound through his first 10 starts of the season, as he's accrued a 6.08 ERA and is allowing opposing hitters to bat .291 against him. His next start figures to come Thursday against Baltimore.
Garcia (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day disabled list and confirmed as the starting pitcher for Saturday's game against the Phillies. As expected, Garcia is back on the mound for the Blue Jays after a minimum stay on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation. The veteran southpaw compiled a 6.28 ERA across eight starts (38.2 innings) prior to landing on the shelf, so he'll look to turn things around starting Saturday.
Garcia (shoulder) will start Saturday against the Phillies, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Garcia's stay on the shelf will be a brief one, as the veteran southpaw has been cleared to rejoin the Blue Jays' rotation over the weekend after getting through a bullpen session with no issues Thursday. His return will push Joe Biagini into a relief role or back to Triple-A Buffalo. Garcia posted a lackluster 6.28 ERA across eight starts (38.2 innings) prior to landing on the shelf with shoulder inflammation, but he'll look to turn things around now that he's back to full health.
