Garcia went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to San Diego. Garcia was the lone bright spot for the Giants' offense Wednesday, delivering his fourth homer through 54 plate appearances this season. The 25-year-old also drew his first walk in the majors. Garcia's start came behind the dish, but the catcher has been seeing the majority of playing time down the stretch at first base.
Garcia went 4-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a pair of runs scored in Saturday's loss to St. Louis. Garcia's four-hit day upped his batting average to .368 (14-for-38) over 12 games. The 25-year-old has now started six consecutive contests, with the majority coming at first base in place of Brandon Belt (knee). Garcia is striking out at an alarming rate (47.4 strikeout percentage), but that aggresive approach has resulted in three homers during his brief stint in the majors.
Garcia went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a strikeout in Wednesday's win over the Padres. Garcia pulled San Francisco back within one on his solo homer in the eighth inning, though that's as close as the Giants would get in the 8-4 defeat. The 25-year-old has started four straight games -- three at first base and one behind the plate -- so he could continue seeing regular at-bats down the final stretch run of the season.
Garcia went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Rockies. Garcia provided a go-ahead blast in the fourth inning, though the Giants would eventually drop this one by a 5-3 margin. With Buster Posey (hip) shut down for the remainder of the season, Garcia figures to see a couple of starts per week behind the plate backing up Nick Hundley.
Garcia made his first career start behind the dish Friday, going 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a win over the Mets. Garcia's major-league debut went about as well as any rookie could hope. It was the 25-year-old's first start since being called up Aug. 26, so he appears to be the clear backup to veteran Nick Hundley now that Buster Posey (hip) has been shut down. Garcia produced double-digit home runs in all three of his previous full minor-league seasons, so he could generate fantasy interest in two-catcher leagues if the Giants -- who have waived the white flag on the 2018 campaign -- decide to give the rookie backstop more playing time in the final month of the season.
