Padres' Greg Garcia: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia agreed to a one-year, $910,000 deal with the Padres, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

San Diego recently claimed Garcia off waivers and for now, the plan is to go into the regular season with him on the 25-man roster. However, it's possible he could still be cut loose before Opening Day if there is a roster squeeze. Garcia hit .221/.309/.304 with three home runs and three steals in 208 plate appearances with the Cardinals last season. Almost all of his value is generated on the defensive side of the ball.

Padres' Greg Garcia: Claimed by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was claimed off waivers by the Padres on Thursday.

Garcia has a new home after spending the first eight years of his career with the Cardinals. The 29-year-old struggled in 2018, hitting just .221/.309/.304 with three homers and three steals across 114 games (208 plate appearances with the Cardinals). His overall track record (.248/.356/.339 career slash line) and ability to play multiple positions, however, should give him the inside track to break camp as a utility infielder.

Cardinals' Greg Garcia: Timely double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 2-for-5 with an RBI double in a win over the Royals on Sunday.

The veteran utility man got the start at the keystone and delivered his first multi-hit effort since June 20. Garcia continues to fill in around the infield, and he's rebounded to an extent from a pedestrian July with a .250 average (4-for-16) thus far in August.

Cardinals' Greg Garcia: Contributes solo homer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in a win over the Cubs on Friday.

Garcia took over at shortstop during the rout and launched a 380-foot shot to right off position player Tommy LaStella in the seventh, his third homer of the season. The versatile veteran's playing time has taken quite a dive thus far in July, as he's yet to log a start and has only six at-bats overall during the month. However, he's been typically solid during his modest opportunities this season, slashing .257/.331/.385 with eight extra-base hits (five doubles, three homers), 11 RBI, 13 walks and 13 runs across 124 plate appearances.

Cardinals' Greg Garcia: Producing at plate in June
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia, who went 2-for-4 in a loss to the Phillies on Wednesday, is hitting .333 over his first 18 plate appearances of June.

The versatile veteran only sees a handful of starts a month on average around the infield, but he's been putting them to good use recently. Garcia is now slashing a serviceable .272/.344/.395 on the season, with his current slugging percentage serving as a career high. The 28-year-old's sporadic playing time and modest power numbers do limit his fantasy viability to very deep formats, however, but he would see an uptick in appeal if injuries were to strike in the Cardinals infield.
