Garcia (0-2) took the loss Saturday at Detroit and was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barres after the contest. He allowed five runs (four earned) on five hits with three strikeouts and one walk over 4.1 innings. The 22-year-old was called up ahead of Saturday's contest and will return to Triple-A after a one-day stay in the majors. The right-hander threw 52 of 88 pitches for strikes and was unable to solidify a rotation spot with Corey Kluber (shoulder) sidelined for the foreseeable future. Garcia figures to receive another starting opportunity with the Yankees before too long.
Garcia was recalled by the Yankees ahead of his scheduled start against the Tigers on Saturday. Garcia spent the last month with the Triple-A club and posted a 5.17 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in 15.2 innings across four starts in the minors. He'll return to the Yankees' active roster and could have a chance to solidify a spot in the starting rotation since Corey Kluber (shoulder) is facing an extended absence. Left-hander Justin Wilson (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list as part of a corresponding move.
Garcia will rejoin the Yankees starting rotation this weekend against the Tigers, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. The 22-year-old has been at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for the past month after making his lone big-league start of the season, but he'll rejoin New York this weekend in Detroit with Corey Kluber (shoulder) facing an extended absence. Garcia struggled in four starts at Triple-A with a 5.17 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 21:12 K:BB over 15.2 innings, but he'll now have a chance to solidify a rotation spot in the majors for the foreseeable future.
Garcia was optioned to the Yankees' alternate training site after Monday's start against the Orioles, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. He took the loss after allowing two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out four over four innings. Baltimore got to Garcia early, as he surrendered a solo home run in the first inning and an RBI double in the second. He struggled to find his command, issuing three free passes and throwing 40 of 65 pitches for strikes. New York should transition back to a traditional five-man rotation following Garcia's demotion.
Garcia was officially called up as expected ahead of his scheduled start Monday against the Orioles. The 21-year-old lost the fifth starter job to Domingo German after a poor camp, but the Yankees plan on going with a six-man rotation temporarily, so he should be up for at least a few outings. It's unclear exactly what he'll offer after posting an unremarkable 4.98 ERA in his six-start debut last season, but he lines up with a very interesting two-start week, as he's expected to face the Tigers on Sunday.
