  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Pulled off rehab assignment

    Garcia (elbow) has been pulled off his rehab assignment, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Garcia had made two rehab starts and didn't bounce back well from his last one on July 4, with the Astros limiting him to playing catch since then. It does not appear to be a major setback at this point, but Garcia will re-start a 30-day rehab window once the team feels he's ready. Clearly, a return to the major-league rotation won't be happening anytime soon. Garcia is coming back from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in May 2023.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Doesn't throw bullpen Saturday

    Garcia (elbow) threw from flat ground Friday instead of off a mound, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Garcia was roughed up in his rehab start with Double-A Corpus Christi on July 4, allowing four earned runs on three hits and one walk while striking out two over 1.1 innings. Astros manager Joe Espada noted that Garcia "did not bounce back" as well as the team had hoped after that start, so the 27-year-old right-hander has been limited to playing catch since, per Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Limited to catch

    Garcia (elbow) played catch Thursday after originally being scheduled for a bullpen session, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    Garcia struggled in his rehab appearance July 4, primarily due to issues with his location. Manager Joe Espada framed the downgraded activity as a precaution, though the team has also not announced when Garcia will make his next rehab start.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Roughed up in latest rehab start

    Garcia (elbow) covered 1.1 innings while striking out two and giving up four earned runs on three hits and one walk in his latest rehab start last Thursday with Double-A Corpus Christi.

    After tossing a perfect inning in his first rehab outing June 28 in the rookie-level Florida Complex League, Garcia was much less sharp while jumping up three levels for his second rehab start. While he spotted 21 of his 31 pitches for strikes and hit 94 mph with his fastball in the latest outing, his command wasn't on point, as he served up two home runs among the three hits he allowed. Due to effects of Hurricane Beryl in Texas, Garcia's rehab program has been slowed down this week, though he's scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday, according to MLB.com. If all goes well with the side session, Garcia could then make his third rehab start as soon as this weekend.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Moving up to Double-A

    Astros manager Joe Espada said on Tuesday in an interview with SportsTalk 790 that Garcia's (elbow) next rehab start will come Thursday at Double-A Corpus Christi, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    Garcia threw one inning with the Astros' Florida Complex League affiliate this past Friday in his first rehab appearance. It's not clear what his targeted pitch count is for Thursday's outing, but Garcia will need a handful of rehab starts before becoming an option to join the Astros' rotation.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Starts rehab assignment

    Garcia (elbow) has been sent to the Astros' Florida Complex League affiliate to begin a rehab assignment.

    It will be the first game action for Garcia since he underwent Tommy John surgery last May. The 27-year-old will need most, if not all, of his 30-day rehab window to get built up, but he could prove to be a nice boost to the Astros' rotation after the All-Star break. Garcia holds a career 3.61 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 364:112 K:BB across 352 innings.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: On cusp of rehab assignment

    The 27-year-old threw a 32-pitch live bullpen session over the weekend and is just about ready for game action. Garcia will likely need to throw another bullpen session before being cleared for games, at which point he'll jump into a lengthy rehab assignment as he finishes up his recovery from May 2023 Tommy John surgery.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Throws live BP

    Garcia (elbow) threw a 25-pitch live batting practice session Friday, MLB.com reports.

    Garcia took another step forward after throwing a simulated inning one week prior to Friday's session. He's expected to report to Houston's spring training facility in the next few days, where he'll throw two or three more live batting practices. Assuming Garcia feels okay after that, he's expected to begin a rehab assignment.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Still throwing side sessions

    Garcia (elbow) completed his most recent bullpen session Friday, MLB.com reports.

    Garcia was cleared to resume throwing off a mound in the middle of April and has remained at the same stage of his recovery program for three weeks. The Astros haven't indicated that Garcia has experienced any setbacks in his recovery from his May 19, 2023 Tommy John surgery, so the right-hander could soon be cleared to face hitters in live batting practice. Houston is hopeful to get Garcia back from the 60-day injured list at some point around the middle of the season.
