Rays' Avisail Garcia: To play one rehab game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is set to test his recovering oblique in a rehab game at Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Garcia is expected to be ready for a return from the injured list when first eligible Saturday, but he'll look to cement that target date by jumping back into game action with the Bulls. A setback-free performance is presumably the final hurdle to an on-time return for the veteran outfielder.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Expected back against Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (oblique) is on track to return sometime during Tampa Bay's upcoming series against Baltimore, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Garcia was given the green light to take dry swings Monday, and he was spotted running the bases and tracking pitches in the bullpen Tuesday, per Josh Tolentino of The Athletic. He's also slated to play catch on the field. Assuming all goes well, the 28-year-old should be activated sometime over the weekend, which would give Tampa Bay's lineup a nice boost. Garcia is eligible to come off the injured list beginning Saturday.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Taking dry swings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (oblique) is scheduled to take dry swings Monday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Garcia landed on the injured list last week due to a right oblique strain, though he received good news after undergoing an MRI and is hoping to return after a brief stay on the shelf. He's eligible to return over the weekend should he prove ready.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Could return after minimum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (oblique) received good news after undergoing an MRI, and the Rays are optimistic he'll be ready to return after the 10-day minimum, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Garcia was placed on the injured list Wednesday due to a right oblique strain, though it appears the injury shouldn't cause him to miss significant time. He'll be eligible to return Aug. 24.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a right oblique strain, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Garcia left Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Padres with the tight oblique but expressed optimism he would avoid the IL. The Rays evidently felt differently about Garcia after re-evaluating him Wednesday, so he'll remain on the shelf for at least the next week and a half to recover from the matter. Right-handed pitcher Jose De Leon was recalled from Triple-A Durham in a corresponding move, but Garcia's absence may translate to more at-bats for the likes of bench players Jesus Aguilar and Mike Brosseau.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Leaves with oblique tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was removed from Tuesday's game at San Diego with right oblique tightness, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Garcia went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts prior to be lifted for a pinch hitter during the seventh inning. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the 28-year-old seems likely to be held out of Wednesday's lineup at the very least, with a scheduled off day to follow Thursday.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Big game against Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 3-for-6 with a two-run home run, a double, and two runs scored to help the Rays to a 10-4 victory over the Padres on Monday.

The 28-year-old continued his recent hot streak at the dish, as he's now hit safely in 12 out of his last 13 starts, cranking four long balls and driving in 11 runs over that stretch. The run has boosted his slash line to a solid .280/.337/.462 across 433 plate appearances.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Cranks 16th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Mariners.

Garcia provided the Rays' final run of the night with a 418-foot homer off Tommy Milone in the sixth inning. Garcia has gone 7-for-24 with two home runs and six RBI in six August games, already matching his homer output from July. For the year, the 28-year-old has 16 homers, 55 RBI and 47 runs scored with a .275/.333/.451 line in 98 games.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia will be on the bench Monday against the Blue Jays, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Garcia sits for the third time in the last seven games. Austin Meadows starts in right field, with deadline-day acquisition Jesus Aguilar serving as the designated hitter.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Plates another pair in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in a win over the Marlins on Sunday.

Garcia brought home Jesus Aguilar and Travis d'Arnaud in the seventh with a timely two-bagger that extended the Rays' lead to 6-1. The veteran has now hit safely in six straight games and has compiled four extra-base hits (three doubles, one home run) and five RBI overall during that stretch.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Reaches base four times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 2-for-3 with two walks and a run scored Saturday in the Rays' 8-6 win over the Marlins.

With only two home runs and five doubles in the second half, Garcia hasn't supplied much power out of the corner outfield, but he's at least supplied a stellar .354 on-base percentage in his first 16 games since the All-Star break. As one of the few right-handed hitters on the roster who isn't regularly subjected to platoon work, Garcia's playing-time outlook appears more stable than most of the Rays' other position players. He'll stick in the lineup for the 11th time in 13 games Sunday, batting fifth and manning right field.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is not in the lineup Thursday against the Red Sox.

Jesus Aguilar, who was acquired from the Brewers in exchange for Jake Faria on Wednesday, will start at designated hitter and hit sixth in this one. Garcia is slashing .259/.317/.426 with two home runs and a 33.3 percent strikeout rate in his last 15 games.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Hits second homer of July
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run and three RBI in a 6-5 victory against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

That was just Garcia's second homer of July. He started the season strongly in the power department, hitting 10 long balls in the first two months, but he only has four since the start of June. Garcia is batting .275 with 14 homers, 49 RBI, 44 runs and nine steals in 357 at-bats this season.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (illness) is back in the lineup Tuesday in Boston, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Garcia left Saturday's game in Toronto with an illness and didn't take part in Sunday's contest, but he's back in action following a scheduled off day Monday. He'll bat fifth and play right field.

July 28, 2019 09:44 AM
Rays' Avisail Garcia: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (illness) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Garcia was forced to exit Saturday's 10-9 loss in the fourth inning after falling ill, but the team expressed hope he would be ready to rejoin the lineup for the series finale. The 28-year-old apparently still felt under the weather while reporting to the ballpark Sunday, so he'll benefit from some extra rest before likely checking back into the starting nine Tuesday in Boston. The Rays will run out an outfield of Austin Meadows, Guillermo Heredia and Tommy Pham.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Exits Saturday with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia exited Saturday's game against the Blue Jays in the fourth inning due to an illness, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Mike Brosseau shifted to right field and Joey Wendle entered the game at second base. Garcia went 1-for-3 with a strikeout prior to exiting. He should be considered day-to-day for now.

Rays' Avisail Garcia: Goes deep in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and three walks during a 2-1 loss against the White Sox on Saturday.

The 28-year-old accounted for Tampa Bay's only run in the loss. Garcia is hitting .326 (15-for-46) in July, but this was his first homer since June 29. Garcia has 13 home runs along with a .281 average, 46 RBI, 42 runs and nine steals in 331 at-bats this season.

July 19, 2019 04:24 PM
Rays' Avisail Garcia: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is not starting Friday against the White Sox.

Garcia sits for the second straight game though not the second straight day, as he was in the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees. Austin Meadows starts in right field Friday, with Ji-Man Choi serving as the designated hitter.

July 18, 2019 07:48 PM
Rays' Avisail Garcia: Sitting for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia isn't starting Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Garica went 1-for-4 in the first game of the day, but he'll get the night off as Yandy Diaz slots in as the designated hitter.

July 14, 2019 10:56 AM
Rays' Avisail Garcia: Takes seat Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Garcia will cede designated-hitter duties to Nate Lowe after going 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs while starting the second game of Saturday's doubleheader. The Rays' ongoing efforts to make room in the lineup for Lowe on a more regular basis could hurt Garcia to some degree, though it's unlikely the 28-year-old will be forced to sit more than a couple times per week while he remains productive at the dish.
