  • Garcia (finger) faced live hitters at the Yankees' player development complex earlier this week, and pitching coach Matt Blake stated that the pitcher is getting a "reset" physically, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports. Garcia was placed on the 7-day minor-league injured list with a finger injury May 31, but that issue no longer appears to be bothering him. Instead, Blake suggested that the organization is keeping Garcia at the team's complex in order to help him figure things out after a tough start to his season. "They just wanted to pull him out and let him get a little bit of a reset physically," Blake told NJ Advance Media on Wednesday. "Seems like he's in an OK spot mentally and physically, but I do think they're just trying to rework where they're at with him because he had been struggling a little bit." Garcia has posted a 10.38 ERA and 2.26 WHIP over seven starts with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on the campaign.

  • Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre placed Garcia (finger) on its 7-day injured list Tuesday, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports. Garcia was deactivated after he lost feeling in his fingers during his most recent start for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday. The right-hander could be dealing with some sort of nerve injury, but the Yankees haven't provided a firm diagnosis at this stage. Once one of the more promising pitching prospects in the organization, Garcia's star has dimmed considerably since he first reached the big leagues in 2020. He's turned in a 10.38 ERA, 2.26 WHIP and 18:16 K:BB across 21.2 innings over his seven starts at Triple-A this season.

  • Garcia left Friday's Triple-A contest with two outs in the second inning after losing feeling in his fingers, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports. The organization has yet to release an update on Garcia's status, so it's unclear if he suffered an injury or was removed for precautionary reasons. Before his exit, the right-hander allowed three runs and five hits -- all in the second inning -- and didn't walk or strike out any batters. Garcia has struggled in the minors this season, posting a 10.38 ERA, 2.26 WHIP and 18:16 K:BB across 21.2 innings.

  • Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday. Garcia should serve as rotation depth this season, but there wasn't a role for him to fill right away. He struggled to a 6.85 ERA in 24 outings at the Triple-A level last season, walking 15.6 percent of opposing batters, so he needs to sort out his control before he makes his push for a rotation spot.

  • Garcia has looked good this spring, and Yankees manager Aaron Boone indicated Wednesday that he could "put himself in that mix" for an Opening Day roster spot, Randy Miller of NJ Advance Media reports. Garcia struggled mightily at the Triple-A level last season, posting a 6.85 ERA and 1.88 WHIP over 90.2 innings. He also threw 8.1 frames with the Yankees, giving up six earned runs. However, he looked much better in his first spring outing Wednesday, hurling two scoreless innings during which he allowed only one hit. Beyond those numbers, the right-hander averaged 94.9 mph on his fastball, per Max Goodman of SI.com, after posting a 92.2 mph average velocity on the pitch last season. Further, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports that Garcia altered his mechanics during the offseason and is pitching with more confidence, strengthening the hope that he could bounce back from his difficult 2021 campaign. It's unlikely that Garcia will be handed a starting spot in the rotation to begin the season, but he could at least make the Opening Day roster if he puts together a strong spring, especially since all MLB teams will be allowed to carry two extra players until May 1.
