Garcia has gone 3-for-19 (.158) with two runs and a 2:7 BB:K over eight games this spring.
Garcia had not found his swing when exhibition games were halted, but he will have plenty of time to do so before action resumes. He remains on track to open the season sharing right-field duties with Ryan Braun in some fashion, and will presumably slide over to center or left field whenever fellow outfielders Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain need a day off.
Garcia is expected to share time in right field with Ryan Braun in 2020, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
In order to maximize the defensive skills of Garcia, Milwaukee is planning to shift Christian Yelich to left field in 2020 while Garcia and Braun share time in right field. Garcia, who signed a two-year contract with the Brewers in the offseason, is also expected to spell Lorenzo Cain in center field on occasion, while Braun should see time at first base in order to maximize both of their at-bats.
Garcia signed a two-year, $20 million deal with the Brewers on Monday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
After a slow start to his career, Garcia has hit well in two of the last three seasons, posting a .330/.380/.506 line for the White Sox in 2017 and a .282/.332/.464 line for the Rays last season. He hit a career-best 20 homers last season and could be in line to beat that number this season in a much more hitter-friendly home park, though his playing time may depend in part on how often Ryan Braun moves in to play first base. Garcia's contract contains a club option for the 2022 season.
Garcia is not in the lineup for Game 1 of the ALDS against the Astros on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Garcia went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Wednesday's wild-card win in Oakland. Yandy Diaz, who homered twice in that contest, starts as the designated hitter Friday.
Garcia is not in Saturday's lineup against the Blue Jays.
He is hitting .395 with two home runs over his last 10 games. Jesus Aguilar is starting at designated hitter and batting fifth.
Garcia went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Yankees.
It's only Garcia's second big fly in September, but it was enough to give the 28-year-old his first career 20-homer campaign. He's having a good month otherwise, however, slashing .333/.350/.561 through 15 games with 11 RBI as the Rays continue their push to lock up a wild-card spot.
Garcia is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Yankees, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
After missing a pair of games over the weekend due to vertigo, Garcia rejoined the starting lineup Monday and went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in Tampa Bay's win over Boston. He'll head back to the bench Tuesday as the Rays look to ease him back into action, with Jesus Aguilar picking up the start at DH in his stead.
Garcia (illness) went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in a win over the Red Sox on Monday.
Garcia was back in the lineup after overcoming the vertigo that sidelined him over the weekend. The veteran closed out the scoring on the night with his ninth-inning two-bagger and extended his hitting streak to six games in the process. Garcia's successful September includes a .321 average and an impressive 10 RBI on 17 hits.
Garcia (head) will start in right field and bat sixth Monday against the Red Sox, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Garcia draws back into the starting nine for the series finale after a vertigo spell kept him on the bench for the last two games of the weekend. Expect Garcia -- who has slashed .320/.340/.500 through 13 games in September -- to start nearly all of the Rays' final six contests of the regular season with the team in a tight battle for one of the two American League wild-card spots.
Garcia (illness) is not in Sunday's lineup but will be available off the bench,Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Garcia has been out of the lineup both Saturday and Sunday and told reporters that he has been dealing with vertigo. He also said he's starting to feel better, which could mean a full return to the lineup Monday against the Red Sox.
Garcia (illness) is not in Sunday's lineup against the Red Sox.
Garcia exited Friday's contest prematurely after experiencing dizziness. He has now been out of the lineup both Saturday and Sunday, with his next chance to return coming Monday against Boston. Ji-Man Choi will serve as the designated hitter and bat fourth in Garcia's absence.
Garcia (dizziness) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.
Garcia was removed from Friday's game after six innings and manager Kevin Cash did not provide many details afterward, saying only that Garcia was removed due to "dizziness." Austin Meadows is slated to man right field Saturday with Kevin Kiermaier in center and Nate Lowe at DH.
Garcia, who went 1-for-2 in Friday's extra-innings win over the Red Sox, left with dizziness after the sixth inning, the Associated Press reports.
Manager Kevin Cash did not have an update on Garcia following the game, so his status remains up in the air heading into Saturday's late-afternoon tilt against Boston.
Garia is not starting Tuesday against the Dodgers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The Rays' lineup will be a man short with the series being played under National League rules. Garcia owns a strong .371/.395/.629 line over his last nine games, so it would be a surprise to see him stuck on the bench for the entirety of the series.
Garcia went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and a two-run double in a win over the Angels on Friday.
Garcia was a catalyst out of the top of the order, with the three-RBI effort his second of the last four games. The veteran has driven in nine runs overall across his last eight contests, an impressive display of timely hitting that he's accomplished with six extra-base hits (four doubles, one triple, one home run) over that span.
Garcia (glute) went 1-for-4 with a run in a loss to the Rangers on Thursday.
Garcia was right back in the lineup and starting in center field after missing Wednesday's contest. The veteran has now reached safely in seven straight games, and his next home run will push him to a career-high 20 for the campaign.
Garcia (glute) is starting in center field and hitting leadoff Thursday against the Rangers, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Garcia exited Tuesday's game with a glute strain, but he's been cleared to rejoin the lineup after missing just one game. In 15 appearances since returning from an oblique injury last month, Garcia is slashing .246/.267/.439 with two home runs, nine RBI and a stolen base.
Garcia is day-to-day with a glute strain, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The injury was originally reported as right hip tightness. He is available to pinch hit in Wednesday's game.
Garcia (hip) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Right hip tightness forced Garcia from Tuesday's contest and he will sit for the second game of the series as Tommy Pham serves as the DH and Kean Wong mans right field. It's uncertain if he will be available off the bench. Garcia went 0-for-3 Tuesday and is now 14-for-57 (.246) with two home runs and 18 strikeouts in 15 games since returning from an oblique injury last month.
Garcia was removed from Tuesday's game against the Rangers with right hip tightness, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Garcia went 0-for-3 with a walk before exiting the game following his eighth-inning strikeout. The 28-year-old should be considered day-to-day until more is known on the injury.
