Astros' Robel Garcia: Quick return to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Sugar Land on Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 28-year-old was demoted to Triple-A on Monday, but he'll quickly rejoin the big-league roster after Abraham Toro was traded to the Mariners. Garcia could see some time at third base until Alex Bregman (quadriceps) returns from the injured list, but utility man Aledmys Diaz should have a more regular role.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Sugar Land on Monday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Garcia was no longer needed as a utility man with Aledmys Diaz (hand) returning from the injured list in a corresponding move. Garcia hasn't done much in his 104 major-league plate appearances this season to suggest that he deserves more opportunities, as he's hitting just .170/.233/.234.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Reaches four times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 3-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Friday's 7-3 win over Texas.

Garcia drew a rare start at third base Friday and, batting out of the nine hole, made a big impact. He singled three times, drew a walk and scored on Michael Brantley's groundout in the fourth inning. The 28-year-old utility man is slashing .176/.240/.242 through 101 plate appearances.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Back in reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Garcia drew starts at shortstop in the Astros' final three games before the All-Star break, but he's shifted back to a reserve role after Carlos Correa was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list to begin Houston's second-half schedule. The 28-year-old will soon tumble further down the pecking order in the Astros infield when Aledmys Diaz (hand) is reinstated from the injured list.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Fills in at shortstop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia started at shortstop and went 0-for-1 with two walks in Friday's 4-0 loss to the Yankees.

Garcia filled in for Carlos Correa, who landed on the injured list due to health and safety protocols. It's unclear how long Correa will be out, but with the All-Star break coming up, the Astros could opt to let him stay on the IL until after the break.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Bypassed for work at third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

After going 1-for-5 with four strikeouts while filling in at shortstop for a resting Carlos Correa in Tuesday's 3-1 win, Garcia will head to his familiar bench role in the series finale. Garcia looked like he might get the opportunity to pick up regular work at third base when Alex Bregman (quadriceps) was moved to the injured list last week, but Abraham Toro has since emerged as the primary option at the position. Toro will pick up his sixth start in seven games Wednesday.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Enters for injured Bregman
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia entered Wednesday's game for injured third baseman Alex Bregman (quadriceps) and went 0-for-4 in an 8-4 win over the Rangers.

Houston manager Dusty Baker told Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle that it looks like Bregman could be out "for a while," but then quickly added the severity of the injury is not yet known. Pending an evaluation of Bregman on Thursday, Garcia could be in line for consistent at-bats. First baseman Yuli Gurriel could also fill in at third.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Fills in for Correa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia started at shortstop and went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Twins.

Garcia picked up a spot start for Carlos Correa, who was getting a day off after starting 59 of the Astros' 63 games. Garcia's homer followed Kyle Tucker's blast in the seventh inning, giving Houston its only runs. Garcia was recalled by Houston two weeks ago, and this was just his second start.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Recalled by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was recalled by the Astros on Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Garcia spent a week with Triple-A Sugar Land, but he'll now return to the major-league roster as a depth option after Michael Brantley (hamstring) was placed on the injured list. Garcia has hit .190 with two RBI in 13 major-league games to begin the season.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Sugar Land on Friday, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

He heads down to clear a spot for Friday's starting pitcher, Tyler Ivey. Garcia hit .190 with a 30.4 percent strikeout rate in his limited looks with the big club.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Delivers walk-off win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 1-for-1 with an RBI in Friday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Angels.

Garcia delivered a walkoff, pinch-hit single in the bottom of the 10th in his first game action since April 13 to give Houston its second straight win. He's a seldom-used utility infielder who was also caught up in the COVID-19 protocol program along with four other Astros. With Jose Altuve cleared to workout Friday and a possible return in the coming days, Garcia could make a start over the weekend.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Activated Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (COVID-19 injured list) was activated Tuesday, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

He is not in the lineup but will be available off the bench. Garcia is 1-for-3 while appearing in five games this season -- an indication that he will primarily be used off the bench for the foreseeable future.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Could return from IL in Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is tentatively expected to be activated from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of Tuesday's series opener in Colorado, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Of the five Astros on the COVID-19 IL, only Jose Altuve appears unlikely to rejoin the team in Colorado while he waits to clear all MLB health and safety protocols. Once they arrive in Denver, the quartet of Garcia, Martin Maldonado, Alex Bregman and Yordan Alvarez will still have a few more hurdles to clear related to COVID-19 intake testing, but all four should be eligible to play Tuesday if they continue to test negative for the virus. Once reinstated, Garcia will likely see limited use as a utility man for Houston.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Begins individual workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Astros manager Dusty Baker said Sunday that Garcia (COVID-19 injured list) has been cleared to resume individual workouts, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Garcia and the other four Astros placed on the COVID-19 IL on Wednesday all appear to have finished their respective quarantine periods, but Baker didn't specify when any of the players might be ready to rejoin the team. Since Baker previously mentioned that the five players in question are unlikely to be available for the team's ongoing road trip, Garcia's earliest possible return date would most likely be Thursday, when the Astros host the Angels.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Unlikely to return during road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (COVID-19 protocols) is unlikely to return during the Astros' current five-game road trip, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Garcia was one of several Astros who were placed on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday. It's not yet clear whether Garcia has tested positive for the virus, but manager Dusty Baker said Friday that none of the five players are likely to return before the team returns home Thursday. Alex De Goti could continue to see at-bats for the Astros while Garcia is out.

Astros' Robel Garcia: One of five Astros to COVID IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros placed Garcia on the injured list Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Garcia was one of five players Houston placed on the IL on Wednesday without an injury designation, indicating that each member of the quintet has been ruled out due to COVID-19-related protocols. No reports have come out yet specifying whether Garcia (or any of the other four Astros) tested positive for the virus, or if the players in question have been ruled out through contact tracing. Alex De Goti was one of five players called up from the alternate site in corresponding moves, and he should be the primary replacement for Garcia as a utility man for Houston.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Enters for Bregman in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia entered Tuesday's game for Alex Bregman prior to the seventh inning of an 8-2 loss to Detroit.

Houston manager Dusty Baker will look for spots to rest Bregman, who dealt with hamstring issues during spring training and was held out of at least one regular-season game due to sore legs. Garcia has barely played in 2021, appearing in five games (no starts) and going 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Secures spot on Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Astros manager Dusty Baker said Monday that Garcia will be included on the Opening Day roster, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Garcia and Aledmys Diaz (hamstring) will break camp as the Astros' primary utility options in the infield, with Abraham Toro expected to head back to minor-league camp. In addition to offering depth at second base, third base and shortstop, Garcia also has experience in left field.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Wallops first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia started at third base and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's spring game against the Cardinals.

Garcia has appeared in every game, either as a starter or backup, since making his spring debut for Houston. He joined the team in late February and has played second base three times and third base four times while going 4-for-10 with one walk and three runs scored. He and Abraham Toro are battling for the second utility spot. The Astros plan to use Garcia in the outfield as well.

Astros' Robel Garcia: Makes Astros debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia started at second base and went 1-for-2 in Friday's spring game against the Marlins.

The Astros claimed Garcia off waivers from Angels last week, and he debuted for his new team. Second base is Garcia's natural position, but he's also played left field and has minor-league experience at shortstop and third base. To impact Houston's roster, which is light on outfield depth, he may see time in the outfield over the next few weeks. "I would feel comfortable with it," Garcia said of playing the outfield to Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle. "I've been working a lot on playing those different positions." The Astros currently have Aledmys Diaz and Abraham Toro playing multiple infield positions, so gaining more experience in the outfield would serve Garcia well.
