Jaime Garcia: Calling it quits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is expected to retire, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

Garcia, who spent time with five different teams over the past two seasons after spending the first eight years of his career with the Cardinals, will call it quits after struggling to a career-worst 5.82 ERA across 82 innings in 2018 (with the Blue Jays and Cubs). All in all, the 32-year-old posted a respectable 3.85 ERA across 10 major-league seasons (1,135 innings).

Cubs' Jaime Garcia: Records hold in win over Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia pitched a scoreless eighth inning with a strikeout to record a hold in Friday's 3-2 win over the Reds.

With the Cubs dealing with injuries to relievers Brandon Morrow and now Pedro Strop, who strained his hamstring Thursday, Garcia looks like he could take on a more significant role in Chicago's bullpen. While the veteran righty has a subpar 6.19 ERA this season, he had a more respectable 4.41 ERA as a starter in 2017, and Cubs manager Joe Maddon likely values his experience. Garcia doesn't figure to be in the mix for saves with Morrow and Strop out, but he could grab a few more holds the rest of the way.

Cubs' Jaime Garcia: Contract purchased from minors Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia had his contract purchased from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Garcia didn't make an appearance for Triple-A Iowa after signing a minor-league deal with Chicago at the end of August, but the Cubs were apparently impressed enough with a simulated game he threw Tuesday to add him to their roster for the stretch run. The veteran left-hander, who owns a 5.93 ERA across 74.1 big-league innings this season, figures to work in a long-relief role down the stretch.

Cubs' Jaime Garcia: Picked up by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Friday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

Garcia was released by the Blue Jays on Thursday, but he didn't have to spend a long time unemployed. Garcia will make some minor-league relief appearances over the weekend as an audition for a major-league bullpen role. He'll have to pitch better than he did for the Blue Jays if he's to earn a spot in Chicago, as he posted an ugly 5.93 ERA in 74.1 innings for the Canadian club prior to his release.

Blue Jays' Jaime Garcia: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was designated for assignment Saturday.

Garcia was the casualty necessary in order for the Blue Jays' to reinstate Aaron Sanchez (finger) from the 60-day disabled list. The veteran lefty hasn't been what the Blue Jays hoped for when they signed him in the offseason. He posted a 6.16 ERA in 13 starts, causing him to be moved to the bullpen in July. He hasn't been good enough there to be worth keeping around, recording a 4.85 ERA in 13 relief innings. Garcia has a track record of being an effective pitcher in the past, which could cause some team to take a chance on him, but he hasn't posted an ERA below 4.41 since 2015, so it's unlikely he'll be a valuable fantasy asset down the stretch.
