Rangers' Luis Garcia: Assigned to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was reassigned to the Rangers' alternate training site Sunday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Garcia signed with the Rangers in January and was able to work at the main facility during camp, but he'll shift to the team's alternate site ahead of the regular season. The right-hander could be an option to fill in if injuries occur in the bullpen this season, but it's unlikely that he'd be used in high-leverage situations.

Rangers' Luis Garcia: Lands with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia signed a one-year, $1.1 million contract with the Rangers on Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The right-hander refused an outright assignment to Triple-A in October, but he'll find a spot with the Rangers on a split contract. Garcia's 4.35 ERA in 2019 was far better than the year before, but his 5.93 FIP suggests that the success may not be sustainable. If he can maintain a spot on the major-league roster, the 32-year-old will likely be used mainly in lower-leverage relief situations.

Luis Garcia: Refuses assignment to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia became a free agent Monday after refusing an outright assignment to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Garcia's 4.35 ERA in 62 innings for the Angels this season was decent enough, though his 5.94 FIP suggests he overachieved. The veteran will enter the 2020 season at 33 years old and isn't be a lock for a big-league roster spot.

Angels' Luis Garcia: Snags win versus Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (2-1) earned the win Saturday, pitching a scoreless inning with two walks in a 10-4 win over the Red Sox.

Garcia became the pitcher of record as the Angels rallied for seven runs in the bottom of the eighth inning. The reliever has a 4.50 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 54 innings this season, with a 48:30 K:BB. August was a good month for Garcia, as he recorded a 1.54 ERA in 11 appearances spanning 11.2 innings.

Angels' Luis Garcia: Two whiffs in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia tossed 1.2 scoreless relief innings Friday, allowing one hit and striking out two during a 7-2 loss to the White Sox.

Since the All-Star break, Garcia has posted a 5.17 ERA in 15.2 innings, amassing an 18:6 K:BB in that span. His season numbers are only marginally better with a 4.81 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 48.2 innings, and he's primarily been used as a middle reliever with a couple of appearances as an opener mixed in.

Angels' Luis Garcia: Gets another chance to open
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is slated to serve as the Angels' opening pitcher for Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The Angels have most frequently used Cam Bedrosian as the opener ahead of primary pitcher Felix Pena, but with manager Brad Ausmus increasingly leaning on Bedrosian for late-inning work in recent days, Garcia will get the chance to "start." Monday will mark Garcia's second turn as an opener this season, with the right-hander having previously tossed a clean inning ahead of Pena in a May 30 victory over the Mariners. Expect Garcia to be limited to around 1-to-2 innings again before giving way to Pena.

Angels' Luis Garcia: Listed as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia will serve as the opener Thursday against the Mariners.

Garcia will open for Felix Pena, who figures to cover the bulk of innings Wednesday. In 21 appearances this season (all in relief), Garcia owns a 3.32 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 13:13 K:BB in 19 innings.

Angels' Luis Garcia: Activated off injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (back) was activated off the 10-day injured list Saturday.

Garcia struck out the side in his lone rehab appearance at High-A Inland Empire, clearing the way for his return to the majors. The 32-year-old has enjoyed a solid start to the season with a 2.25 ERA and 1.44 WHIP despite a 9:13 K:BB over 16 innings.

Angels' Luis Garcia: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (back) began a rehab assignment with High-A Inland Empire on Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. He struck out the side in a scoreless frame.

Garcia has been out since May 13 with a lumbar spine muscle spasm. Given the relatively short length of his absence, he's unlikely to require too many rehab innings, though the Angels haven't announced a target date for his return.

Angels' Luis Garcia: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a lumbar spine muscle spasm.

Garcia apparently picked up the issue during his outing against the Orioles on Sunday, during which he issued two walks and allowed a hit in a scoreless inning of relief. It's unclear how long the issue will keep Garcia sidelined at this point; he'll be eligible to return May 23, should he prove ready. Taylor Cole was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake in a corresponding move.

Angels' Luis Garcia: Named as part of closer committee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brad Ausmus named Garcia as one of the relievers who could be included in the team's closer committee, Rhett Bollinger of reports.

Ausmus announced prior to Wednesday's game against the Yankees that Cody Allen had been removed as closer, but it didn't take long for the Angels to endure more late-inning turbulence. At least for one game, Garcia did little to justify Ausmus' support, as he failed to retire any of the four batters he faced while the Angels coughed up a 5-2 lead in the seventh inning. Ty Buttrey was able to clean up most of the mess created by Garcia, but he ended up taking the loss after surrendering the go-ahead single to DJ LeMahieu in the top of the ninth. Buttrey's overall body of work this season has still been largely unassailable, so he and Hansel Robles will presumably stick ahead of Garcia in the pecking order for saves for the time being.

Angels' Luis Garcia: Grabs one-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia recorded the last out of the game to secure a save in Sunday's game against the Mariners.

Garcia was called upon after the Angels' bullpen imploded in the ninth, culminating in Cody Allen surrendering a three-run homer to Mitch Haniger to cut the lead to two. However, Garcia got Edwin Encarnacion to pop out to end the game and earn his first save of the season. Though Allen has struggled to begin the campaign, he remains in place as the team's closer for the time being, which will limit Garcia's save chances.

Phillies' Luis Garcia: Ready for Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia will open the year with Low-A Lakewood, Jonathan Mayo of reports.

He may not be the top prospect in the Phillies' system, but Garcia has the most hype right now in dynasty leagues of any Phillies prospect. He broke out in the Gulf Coast League last year, showcasing a potentially plus hit tool, plus speed and plus defense at shortstop. Garcia will eventually need to show he can use the whole field (56.3 Pull%) and get to a modicum of pop against advanced pitchers, but at 18 years old, he is well ahead of schedule.

Angels' Luis Garcia: No arbiter needed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia signed a one-year, $1.675 contract with the Angels on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Garcia had a down year in 2018, accruing a 6.07 ERA and 1.46 WHIP with a 51:18 K:BB in 59 appearances (46 innings). With his contract sorted out for the upcoming campaign, he'll shift his focus to spring training, where he'll have a chance to prove himself as one of the top arms in the Angels' bullpen.

Angels' Luis Garcia: Shipped to Los Angeles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was traded from the Phillies to the Angels on Thursday in exchange for Jose Alvarez, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

Garcia struggled out of the bullpen for the Phillies in 2018, posting a 6.07 ERA and 1.46 WHIP with 51 strikeouts over 46 innings. Despite his woes, the 31-year-old possesses a lively fastball and will look for a fresh start with the Angels in 2019.

Phillies' Luis Garcia: Strikes out three in scoreless frame
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia threw a scoreless inning in Sunday's loss to the Padres, striking out three while walking one.

Garcia has been used in a fairly high-leverage role this season, though he wasn't on Sunday, as he entered with a five-run deficit. His 3.58 ERA is solid, backed up by strong peripherals (including a 27.4 percent strikeout rate and a 7.4 percent walk rate), but four other Philadelphia relievers have lower ERAs, making him an unlikely candidate to move into a closing role.

July 23, 2018 01:52 AM
Phillies' Luis Garcia: Back from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (wrist) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Sunday.

Garcia will be good to go for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader after being on the shelf since July 12 and missing just the minimum amount of time. He typically pitches in low-leverage situations but could be called upon in a short-handed bullpen if starter Vince Velasquez is unable to provide a deep outing.

July 16, 2018 12:40 PM
Phillies' Luis Garcia: Rehabbing at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (wrist) began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Lehigh Valley over the weekend, making two appearances and giving up two runs on three hits over 1.2 innings.

The 31-year-old, who owns a 4.74 ERA and 1.09 WHIP across 24.2 innings for the big club this season, has been on the shelf since June 12 with the strained right wrist. Garcia may make another appearance or two in the minors before likely rejoining the Phillies shortly after the All-Star break.

Phillies' Luis Garcia: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (wrist) threw a bullpen session Thursday, the Phillies' official site reports.

Garcia has been out for two weeks with a right wrist strain but appears to be nearing a return. He's expected to need at least one more bullpen session before being activated.

June 16, 2018 08:24 PM
Phillies' Luis Garcia: Out with wrist injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right wrist strain Saturday.

Garcia struggled in his last appearance, giving up three earned runs on four hits without getting a single out Tuesday against the Rockies. It's possible his poor performance was related to the injury. Jake Thompson and Yacksiel Rios were called up to replace Garcia and Mark Leiter, who was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
