Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Beginning rehab assignment Monday
Garcia (back) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Jacksonville on Monday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Lands on 10-day IL
Garcia was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, retroactive to April 29, with back tightness, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Garcia is off to a brutal start this season with the Marlins, slashing just .188/.243/.333 through 76 plate appearances.

Marlins' Avisail Garcia: May have lost regular lineup spot
Garcia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The righty-hitting Garcia had already sat in two of the Marlins' previous three matchups against right-handed pitching, but it's perhaps even more discouraging that he'll hit the bench Sunday despite the fact that the Cubs are bringing a southpaw (Justin Steele) to the hill. Garrett Hampson will step in as the Marlins' right fielder in place of Garcia, who is beginning to lose work after slashing .188/.243/.333 with a career-worst 31.1 percent strikeout rate through his first 74 plate appearances of the season....

Garcia had to depart Sunday's game versus the Diamondbacks when he was hit on the right wrist after swinging at a pitch. X-rays came back clean and he's listed as day-to-day, but he's surely still sore. Jesus Sanchez will handle right field Monday in place of Garcia.... See More ... See Less

Garcia went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Twins.
He turned on a Kenta Maeda (arm) offering with one out in the second inning and drove it over the left-field wall, and that was all the offense Sandy Alcantara would need on the night. Garcia struck out in his other two at-bats, however, and he's now 3-for-16 (.188) on the season with six K's, and just the one extra-base hit in Tuesday's long ball.
