  • Garcia (0-3) took the loss against the Red on Sunday, giving up one run on three hits while striking out one in one inning. Things could have been worse for the right-hander, but he still served up a game-winning, solo shot to Joey Votto before escaping the frame. Garcia was brought in to help solidify Toronto's setup crew ahead of closer Jordan Romano, but instead he's supplied a 3.94 ERA and awful 16.4 percent strikeout rate through 16 innings. The 31-year-old does have eight holds in 17 appearances, but he could lose his grip on a high-leverage role if he doesn't turn things around.

  • Garcia was ejected from Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. The right-hander entered with two runners on and immediately surrendered a three-run homer to Giancarlo Stanton, and he was ejected after plunking the next batter, Josh Donaldson, in an 0-1 count. Garcia could face some additional discipline should MLB determine any intent from the hit by pitch.

  • Garcia (0-2) took the loss Monday as the Blue jays were downed 3-2 by the Yankees, allowing one run on two hits over one inning. He struck out one without walking a batter. Entering a tie game in the top of the ninth inning, Garcia gave up a couple singles with a stolen base in between to cough up the winning run for the Yankees. The right-hander didn't allow an earned run through his first eight appearances for Toronto, but he's been tagged for five in his last 1.1 innings, leaving him with a 4.82 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and mediocre 6:3 K:BB on the season. Garcia's five holds are tied for the team lead, but he could fall out of a high-leverage role if his struggles continue much longer.

  • Garcia threw a 25-pitch live batting practice session Saturday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports. Garcia missed around two weeks of camp while waiting to secure a visa. The team has remained hopeful that he will be available on Opening Day, and this is another step towards that goal. Garcia could appear in a spring training contest soon, depending on how he recovers from his recent session.

  • Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Wednesday that Garcia (visa issues) has arrived at the team's big-league camp and could throw a bullpen session Friday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports. Though he's missed nearly two weeks' worth of workouts while looking to secure a visa, Garcia shouldn't require much ramp-up time, considering that he's a reliever who historically hasn't worked more than one or two innings per appearance. He's expected to fill a setup role for Toronto in 2022 after he went 15-for-18 in save chances while posting a 4.21 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 60:18 K:BB in 57.2 innings last season between stops in Houston and Miami.
