Garcia went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Saturday's 12-1 win over the Dodgers. Garcia has not dropped off since a hot start with the Rangers. He's never gone more than two games without a hit and ranks tied for seventh in MLB with 46 RBI.
Garcia is not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Rays. Garcia will get his first day off since May 11 after failing to record an extra-base hit in his last nine games. Jason Martin will start in center field and bat eighth.
Garcia went 3-for-4 with three singles, a run, stolen base and strikeout as Texas fell 3-2 to Seattle on Saturday. Garcia's electric rookie campaign continued as he recorded three of four Texas hits in the game with singles in the second, sixth and ninth innings. When paired with 16 home runs, his six steals make him one of the most dynamic players in the game and a potential 20/20 threat.
Garcia went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 9-8 loss to the Angels. Garcia homered for the second time in as many games and has five blasts and 11 RBI over the last five. He's up to 16 homers, tied for the MLB lead with Vladimir Guerrero. He's still relatively new to MLB coaches, who will need to adjust how they pitch to the rookie. Garcia is mashing fastballs (.696 slugging), so opposing pitchers may start feeding him off-speed stuff.
Garcia went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Tuesday in a loss to the Angels. With Texas down 11-1 in the sixth inning, Garcia put up a momentary protest with a two-run shot to left field. The long ball was his 15th of the campaign, tying him for second place in MLB with Ronald Acuna and Shohei Ohtani (who homered earlier in the game). It has been a magical campaign for the 28-year-old -- he blasted 32 homers in the minors in 2019 but wasn't on many radars as an impact big-leaguer. In addition to his impressive homer total, Garcia is slashing .290/.327/.613 with 40 RBI and five stolen bases.
