Top Yimi Garcia News

  • Blue Jays' Yimi Garcia: Ejected Tuesday

    Garcia was ejected from Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The right-hander entered with two runners on and immediately surrendered a three-run homer to Giancarlo Stanton, and he was ejected after plunking the next batter, Josh Donaldson, in an 0-1 count. Garcia could face some additional discipline should MLB determine any intent from the hit by pitch.

  • Blue Jays' Yimi Garcia: Saddled with loss Monday

    Garcia (0-2) took the loss Monday as the Blue jays were downed 3-2 by the Yankees, allowing one run on two hits over one inning. He struck out one without walking a batter.

    Entering a tie game in the top of the ninth inning, Garcia gave up a couple singles with a stolen base in between to cough up the winning run for the Yankees. The right-hander didn't allow an earned run through his first eight appearances for Toronto, but he's been tagged for five in his last 1.1 innings, leaving him with a 4.82 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and mediocre 6:3 K:BB on the season. Garcia's five holds are tied for the team lead, but he could fall out of a high-leverage role if his struggles continue much longer.

  • Blue Jays' Yimi Garcia: Throws bullpen session

    Garcia threw a 25-pitch live batting practice session Saturday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Garcia missed around two weeks of camp while waiting to secure a visa. The team has remained hopeful that he will be available on Opening Day, and this is another step towards that goal. Garcia could appear in a spring training contest soon, depending on how he recovers from his recent session.

  • Blue Jays' Yimi Garcia: Could throw side session Friday

    Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Wednesday that Garcia (visa issues) has arrived at the team's big-league camp and could throw a bullpen session Friday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

    Though he's missed nearly two weeks' worth of workouts while looking to secure a visa, Garcia shouldn't require much ramp-up time, considering that he's a reliever who historically hasn't worked more than one or two innings per appearance. He's expected to fill a setup role for Toronto in 2022 after he went 15-for-18 in save chances while posting a 4.21 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 60:18 K:BB in 57.2 innings last season between stops in Houston and Miami.

  • Blue Jays' Yimi Garcia: Arriving soon

    Garcia's visa issues are nearly resolved, and he should arrive at camp Thursday or Friday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

    Garcia is facing a fairly substantial visa delay, but the Blue Jays aren't ruling him out for Opening Day. He's been able to throw back in Venezuela and is expected to require just two or three Grapefruit League appearances to be ready.

  • Blue Jays' Yimi Garcia: Dealing with visa issues

    Garcia will be a late arrival to spring training due to visa issues, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Garcia landed a two-year contract with the Blue Jays shortly before the lockout, but he'll have a delayed start to camp due to his visa issues. It's not yet clear how long the right-hander will be away from the team or whether his absence will impact his availability to begin the regular season.

  • Blue Jays' Yimi Garcia: Signs with Toronto

    Garcia agreed to a two-year, $11 million contract with the Blue Jays on Saturday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

    The 31-year-old righty has a 3.53 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, 19.9 K-BB% and 16 saves over the past three seasons. He notched 15 saves for Miami last season before getting traded to the Astros. Jordan Romano is the presumed closer in Toronto, but Garcia could work in a setup role. The deal includes a club option for a third year.

  • Astros' Yimi Garcia: Struggles in relief Saturday

    Garcia (3-9) was tagged with the loss in relief Saturday against Arizona after allowing three runs (two earned) on two hits while striking out one across one inning.

    Garcia had tossed three scoreless outings this week but the wheels fell off in this one, as he allowed three runs in the top of the tenth. The 31-year-old reliever has been wildly inconsistent this month and owns a 6.14 ERA through eight appearances in September, allowing at least one run in three of his last six trips to the mound.

  • Astros' Yimi Garcia: Shipped to Houston

    The Astros acquired Garcia from the Marlins on Wednesday in exchange for minor-league outfielder Bryan De La Cruz, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    De La Cruz isn't a top-tier prospect, but a 24-year-old with an .880 OPS at Triple-A is a decent return for a rental reliever in Garcia, who is signed to an affordable one-year, $1.9 million contract in his final year of arbitration. Prior to being dealt, the 30-year-old right-hander emerged as the Marlins' primary closer this season, converting 15 of 18 save attempts while posting a 3.47 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 8.7 K/9. Unfortunately for his fantasy managers, Garcia's value will take a significant hit moving forward, as he's unlikely to challenge All-Star closer Ryan Pressly for save opportunities in Houston. Instead, Garcia will become a key part of the bridge to the ninth inning.

  • Marlins' Yimi Garcia: Picks up 15th save

    Garcia recorded his 15th save of the season Saturday against the Padres after tossing a scoreless ninth inning, walking one and fanning one.

    Garcia handled the ninth inning with a one-run lead and while he walked Trent Grisham to start his outing, he quickly closed things out by striking out Manny Machado and then inducing Wil Myers into a double play. This was Garcia's 15th save of the season and he has converted each of his last six save chances.

  • Marlins' Yimi Garcia: Tallies 14th save

    Garcia did not allow a baserunner in a scoreless 10th inning to earn the save Wednesday against the Nationals.

    Garcia was called upon to maintain a two-run lead in the 10th inning and needed only nine pitches to lock down his 14th save of the season. It was his first save since July 3, and he had been shaky in four outings since, allowing five earned runs, seven hits and four walks across just 3.1 innings. Therefore, this was a necessary clean outing for Garcia and may have been enough for him to hang onto the closer role. Anthony Bender picked up a save July 4, and he could be next in line for saves if the team decides to make a change. However, Bender had pitched three of the last four days so he was likely unavailable for this contest.
