  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Logs two scoreless innings

    Garcia tossed two scoreless innings of relief in Monday's loss to the Athletics. He didn't allow any hits or walks, and struck out one.

    Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Toledo before the game and he looked good in his first MLB action since April 24. The righty has a solid 2.16 ERA and 0.84 WHIP across 8.1 innings for the Tigers this season, and while he's in a fairly low-leverage role at the moment, he could move up the bullpen pecking order if he keeps pitching well.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Recalled by Tigers

    Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Monday.

    Garcia was sent to Toledo in late April, but he'll provide additional depth in the bullpen following two appearances in the minors. Over four major-league outings this year, he's posted a 2.84 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 6.1 innings.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Optioned to Triple-A

    Garcia (fingernail) was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.

    Garcia sustained a cracked fingernail Tuesday, but he returned to action in Sunday's loss to the Rockies and allowed a run on two hits and no walks while striking out one in 2.1 innings. He has a 2.84 ERA in 6.1 major-league innings this year, but he'll now head to the minors.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Leaves Tuesday's game

    Garcia was removed from Tuesday's game against the Yankees due to a cracked fingernail on his right hand, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Garcia recorded a strikeout and walked a batter during the second inning, and he was then removed after spiking a pitch. The 24-year-old should be considered day-to-day as he continues to be evaluated.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Bullpen chances improve

    Garcia looks more likely for the Opening Day roster with the Tigers sending down several other pitchers Monday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Bryan Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Toledo, while Jacob Barnes, Miguel Diaz and Wily Peralta were all optioned to minor-league camp Monday. This is good news for Garcia, who tossed just 3.2 innings for the Tigers last season before getting shut down with a left knee injury. The 24-year-old did log 21 innings in 2020 and could serve as a middle reliever for Detroit throughout 2022, assuming he stays healthy.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Pushing for bullpen spot

    Garcia could earn an Opening Day bullpen spot with the Tigers, though he's also an option for the Triple-A Toledo rotation, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Garcia tossed just 3.2 innings across two games with the Tigers last season before getting shut down with a left knee injury. The 24-year-old did make three starts for Estrellas de Oriente in the Dominican Winter League earlier this offseason, firing 11 scoreless innings, so he seems to be healthy. Manager A.J. Hinch said he's "happy" with where Garcia is at, but it remains to be seen whether he'll factor into the Tigers' bullpen to begin the year. Garcia is off the fantasy radar for now, but the youngster could see his role grow if he pitches well this spring.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Proves health in winter league

    Garcia (knee) made three starts for Estrellas de Oriente in the Dominican Winter League earlier this offseason, firing 11 scoreless innings and allowing four hits and five walks while striking out nine, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Garcia made only two big-league appearances for the Tigers last season before being shut down in June after requiring surgery to address a left knee injury. The 2019 Rule 5 selection was able to make a full recovery from the knee procedure and gained clearance to make his Dominican Winter League debut late in the regular season before taking the mound for two more postseason starts. As Petzold notes, Garcia built up to 74 pitches in his final outing of the winter, so he shouldn't face any restrictions when the MLB lockout ends and players on the Tigers' 40-man roster are able to report to spring training. Garcia will likely be vying for a spot in the Tigers' Opening Day bullpen as a long-relief option.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Transferred to 60-day IL

    The Tigers transferred Garcia (knee) to the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

    Garcia pitched 3.2 scoreless relief innings for the Tigers before suffering a left knee sprain during a long-toss session.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Likely to need surgery

    Garcia is evaluating multiple options to address his sprained left knee, but he will likely need surgery, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Garcia had to be helped off by trainers after suffering the knee sprain during a long toss session Thursday and was later placed on the 10-day injured list. A detailed recovery timeline has yet to be revealed for the right-hander, but given that surgery appears to be in his future, he seems almost certain to miss the rest of June and likely a large portion of July.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Placed on 10-day IL

    Garcia was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left knee sprain Thursday.

    Garcia went down while playing long toss ahead of Thursday's game and had to be helped off the field by trainers. He's apparently dealing with a knee injury that will warrant a trip to the injured list, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be sidelined longer than the minimum of 10 days. Right-hander Beau Burrows was recalled from Triple-A Toledo to fill Garcia's place in the bullpen.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Looks good in 2021 debut

    Garcia pitched three hitless, scoreless innings of relief in Monday's extra-inning loss to the Brewers. He walked one and struck out two.

    Detroit started Tyler Alexander and turned it into a bullpen game, so Garcia's length was very valuable in the 10-inning affair. The righty was making his season debut after getting called up earlier in the day. He pitched 21 innings for the Tigers in 2020 and turned in an abysmal 8.14 ERA, but the team seems high on the 23-year-old after selecting him in last year's Rule 5 draft from the Yankees. Garcia could stick around if he remains this effective.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Joining big-league club

    Garcia will be recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Monday.

    Although Tyler Alexander will start Monday's bullpen game at Milwaukee, Garcia will likely make his 2021 debut as a middle reliever, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Garcia has a 3.20 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB across 19.2 innings (four starts) at Triple-A this season.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Activated, sent to minors

    Garcia (abdomen) was activated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Double-A Erie on Friday.

    The 23-year-old landed on the shelf at the start of the season after he didn't pitch during spring training due to an appendectomy, and he won't join the big-league club now that he's healthy. Garcia made his major-league debut with Detroit last season and had an 8.14 ERA across 21 innings.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: IL move official

    The Tigers placed Garcia (abdominal strain) on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    The transaction clears a spot in the Tigers' Opening Day bullpen for Derek Holland. Garcia didn't pitch at all this spring while recovering from an appendectomy, so he'll likely be sidelined for longer than the minimum 10 days.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Likely bound for IL

    Manager A.J. Hinch confirmed Sunday that he expects Garcia (appendectomy) to open the season on the 10-day injured list, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    The announcement doesn't come as a major surprise, given that the 23-year-old has yet to pitch in a Grapefruit League game after requiring the appendectomy shortly before reporting to spring training. Once activated from the IL, Garcia will likely fill a low-leverage role out of the Detroit bullpen.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Might start on injured list

    Garcia (abdomen) could begin the regular season on the injured list, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    This isn't particularly surprising, as Garcia underwent an appendectomy in February and hasn't been able to appear in a Grapefruit League game yet. The righty is going to need some time to get back into game shape, so he looks unlikely for Opening Day. When Garcia is able to return, he should slot in as a middle-relief option for the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Sidelined to begin camp

    Garcia isn't currently working out after recently undergoing an appendectomy, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Garcia made 15 appearances (two starts) for the Tigers last year and posted an 8.14 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over 21 innings. It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined following his appendectomy, but the right-hander will likely prepare for a middle-relief role in 2021 once he resumes working out.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Earns first big-league win

    Garcia (1-0) gave up one hit while also walking a batter in 1.1 scoreless innings in a win over the Indians on Friday.

    After going down 5-0 early, the Tigers piled on seven runs in the fourth and never looked back, putting Garcia in line for his first major-league win. Despite the positive result, Garcia has been inconsistent in his inaugural season, giving up a whopping five home runs in 11.2 innings. He figures to stick as a middle reliever for the near future.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Pitching in doubleheader Sunday

    Garcia will start the first game of a doubleheader Sunday against the Reds.

    Garcia made his MLB debut in a start Tuesday, allowing three runs (two earned) across three innings. Sunday's game will be a seven-inning affair due to newly adopted doubleheader rules.

  • Tigers' Rony Garcia: Making MLB debut

    Garcia will make his major-league debut as the starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Royals.

    The Rule 5 pick recorded a modest 4.44 ERA in 20 starts for Double-A Trenton in the Yankees' system last year, striking out 23.2 percent of opposing batters. It's unclear what kind of workload he's expected to handle Tuesday.
