Rays' Avisail Garcia: Sits for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Swats 20th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Timely hit in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Shakes off illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Available off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 22, 2019 11:36 AM
Rays' Avisail Garcia: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 21, 2019 03:32 PM
Rays' Avisail Garcia: Exits early with dizziness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Day off Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Knocks in three during win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Singles, scores in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 12, 2019 03:40 PM
Rays' Avisail Garcia: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Day-to-day with glute strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 12, 2019 12:52 PM
Rays' Avisail Garcia: Sitting out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 11, 2019 12:16 AM
Rays' Avisail Garcia: Leaves Tuesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Blistering hot bat in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 3-for-4 with a run-scoring ground-rule double, another two-bagger, a two-run home run and two runs overall in a win over the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Garcia was a thorn in the side of Blue Jays pitching throughout the afternoon and churned out his second consecutive multi-hit effort. The veteran has all five of his extra-base hits for September within the last four games, and with 43 extra-base knocks on the season, he remains within striking distance of eclipsing the career-high 50 he laced with the White Sox back in 2017.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Pair of hits out of leadoff spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 2-for-5 with a run in a win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Garcia was effective out of the top of the order while generating his first multi-hit effort of September. The veteran has a modest four-game hitting streak after opening the current month with an 0-for-8 tally over his first pair of games.

September 1, 2019 12:52 PM
Rays' Avisail Garcia: Gets breather Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Indians.

Garcia will retreat to the bench after seven straight starts, all of which came in the outfield. Now that Kevin Kiermaier is back in action after missing time with a rib injury, Garcia projects to see most of his work as a designated hitter moving forward. The newly recalled Nate Lowe will assume the DH duties in the series finale.
