  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Gives up three runs in loss

    Garcia (0-2) allowed three runs on two hits and a walk while striking out three in 2.2 innings to take the loss in Game 6 of the World Series against Atlanta on Tuesday.

    Garcia was charged with losses in each of his two World Series starts this year, and the Astros failed to provide him with any run support as Atlanta clinched a championship in Game 6. Across his five postseason starts, the righty generated an 8.04 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 15.2 innings.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Fails to finish four innings

    Garcia picked up the loss in Game 3 of the World Series in Atlanta on Friday, lasting just 3.2 innings while giving up one run on three hits and four walks while striking out six.

    Garcia's strikeout total was strong, and his one run allowed wasn't bad, but he'd allowed far too many batters to be trusted to remain in the game any longer. He hasn't been particularly good this postseason, save for a big Game 6 win in the ALCS, as his short start Friday actually represents the second-longest of his four playoff outings this year.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Confirmed for Game 3

    Garcia will start Game 3 of the World Series in Atlanta on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Garcia will be pushed behind Jose Urquidy in the rotation. However, that shouldn't be taken as an indictment on Garcia, who looked great in his last start after struggling mightily in his first two postseason outings. The Astros can afford to pull their Game 2 starter early knowing they can rest their bullpen the next day, while the Game 3 starter will likely be asked to pitch deeper into the game.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Sharp in Game 6 win

    Garcia (1-1) allowed a hit and a walk while striking out seven in 5.2 scoreless innings to earn the win against the Red Sox in Game 6 of the ALCS on Friday.

    Garcia dealt with right knee discomfort in last weekend's start, but he didn't appear to be hindered by the issue Friday. He tossed 76 pitches and held the Red Sox hitless through 5.2 innings before he gave up a triple to Enrique Hernandez in the top of the sixth. The 24-year-old has a 9.64 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 9.1 innings across three postseason starts this year, and he'll attempt to carry Friday's momentum into the World Series.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Starting Game 6

    Garcia will start Game 6 of the ALCS against the Red Sox on Friday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

    Garcia started Game 2 of the ALCS on Saturday, but he was forced out of the contest in the top of the second inning due to right knee discomfort. However, he threw a bullpen Sunday and felt better following his early exit. As a result, the right-hander will start at Minute Maid Park as the Astros attempt to punch their ticket to the World Series.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Throws bullpen, not out for ALCS

    Astros manager Dusty Baker said Garcia (knee) threw a bullpen session and is "feeling a lot better," Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

    Garcia, who started Saturday's 9-5 loss to the Red Sox in Game 2 of the ALCS, labored through one inning (33 pitches) and was charged with five earned runs before departing with right knee discomfort. His ability to get back on the mound a day later suggests that Garcia avoided a major issue, and while Baker said the team isn't considering removing the right-hander from the ALCS roster, it's unclear what role he'll have moving forward. Because Jake Odorizzi was needed in long relief Saturday due to Garcia's early exit, the Astros will need to break in a new starter for Tuesday's Game 4 in Boston. Baker mentioned Zack Greinke as a potential candidate to step in and fill the opening.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Diagnosed with knee discomfort

    Garcia exited Saturday's game against Boston with right knee discomfort, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Garcia gave up a grand slam in the first inning and had another run charged to his line after he walked the leadoff man in the second inning before exiting. The good news for the Astros is that he isn't dealing with an arm problem. If the knee issue passes quickly, the fact that he exited early could in theory leave him able to return within the next few days, but it's possible the injury is serious enough that he'll have to be removed from the roster.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Exits with trainer

    Garcia was removed from Game 2 of the ALCS against the Red Sox on Saturday with an apparent injury, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The nature and severity of Garcia's injury aren't yet clear, but he left the game with no outs in the top of the second inning after a visit with trainers. He allowed four runs on two hits and three walks while striking out two in one inning prior to his removal.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Slated to start Game 2

    Garcia will start Game 2 of the ALCS against the Red Sox on Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Garcia will start on normal rest after he gave up five runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three in 2.2 innings in Game 3 of the ALDS during his postseason debut. He'll attempt to right the ship at Minute Maid Park on Saturday.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Pummeled by ChiSox

    Garcia took a no-decision Sunday in the Astros' 12-6 loss to the White Sox in Game 3 of the ALDS after giving up five runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three over 2.2 innings.

    Garcia looked to be in strong position for a win after he entered the bottom of the third with a 5-1 lead, but the game quickly unraveled for the Astros. After issuing a leadoff walk and then striking out Jose Abreu, Garcia served up a two-run home run to Yasmani Grandal to cut the Astros' lead to two. Garcia then induced a groundout, but surrendered back-to-back singles before manager Dusty Baker turned the game over to reliever Yimi Garcia, who promptly allowed a three-run home run to Leury Garcia. While Luis Garcia's postseason debut was far from memorable, he should still be in good standing to maintain his spot in the rotation when his next turn comes up in the ALCS, should Houston advance.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Confirmed for Game 3

    Garcia will start Game 3 of the ALDS in Chicago, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    As expected, Garcia is the Astros' third starter this postseason after posting a 3.30 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 167:50 K:BB in 155.1 innings this season. He figures to pitch on somewhat of a short leash, considering his youth and the bullpen availability of Zack Greinke, although he did dominate the White Sox for seven innings with eight strikeouts June 18.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Takes eighth loss

    Garcia (11-8) suffered the loss against Tampa Bay on Wednesday, allowing six runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out six across five innings.

    Garcia wasn't helped by his defense, as a two-out error during the second inning led to three unearned runs. However, the right-hander wasn't blame-free in contributing to his own demise, as he gave up a pair of long balls and four total extra-base hits. Garcia did manage to extend his streak of lasting five innings or more to 10 starts, and he has yielded a strong 2.96 ERA and 1.24 WHIP over that stretch. He finishes the campaign with a 3.30 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 173:52 K:BB across 160.1 innings.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Let down by bullpen Wednesday

    Garcia settled for a no-decision against the Angels on Wednesday despite pitching six innings of shutout ball. He allowed three hits and three walks while striking out one.

    Garcia wasn't flawless in the outing, as he threw only 42 of 79 pitches for strikes and induced just six swings-and-misses. However, the right-hander kept Los Angeles off the scoreboard for six innings and departed with a 3-0 lead. Houston's bullpen quickly let that lead evaporate, however, as the Angels put up five runs in the seventh frame. Though Houston ultimately pulled out the win, Garcia was left with a no-decision despite the strong performance. He did, however, notch his first quality start in nearly a month, and Garcia will look to build upon this performance in his scheduled start at home against the Rays next week.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Quiets Texas in rout

    Garcia (11-7) got the win in Thursday's 12-1 defeat of the Rangers, allowing one run on five hits and three walks with two strikeouts in 5.1 innings.

    Garcia was able to navigate some traffic on the bases in the second and third innings and bide some time until Houston broke out with seven runs in the fourth. It was a nice rebound performance from the young righty after he surrendered four runs in a loss his last turn, though his two whiffs are a season low for any appearance lasting at least four innings. He's totaled just 10 strikeouts over his last three starts after averaging six per game prior to the recent stretch.
