Giants' Aramis Garcia: Could return in August
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (hip) could be ready to return by mid-to-late August, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Garcia underwent hip surgery in February that carried a 6-to-8 month recovery timeline, and he appears to be on track in his recovery. The 27-year-old could be available for a good portion of the Giants' games once play resumes, although it's unclear how much playing time he could get with Buster Posey and Tyler Heineman in the fold. Garcia appeared in just 18 major-league games last season, hitting .143/.217/.310 with five RBI and 21 strikeouts.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Moved to 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (hip) was placed on the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

The move made room on the Giants' 40-man roster for the team to claim Jose Siri off waivers from Seattle on Tuesday. Garcia remains unlikely to return this season after undergoing labrum surgery on his right hip in February. The 27-year-old suffered the injury playing winter ball in the Dominican Republic and has been given a 6-to-8 month timetable for a recovery, which would allow the catcher to return to game action for the last few weeks of the season in August at best.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Out at least six months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia will be sidelined 6-to-8 months after undergoing labrum surgery on his right hip this week, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

The 27-year-old apparently suffered the injury playing winter ball in the Dominican Republic, putting his availability for the 2020 season in doubt. Garcia was expected to enter spring training as the favorite for the backup job behind Buster Posey, but the team will now be forced to look elsewhere. Tyler Heineman joined the Giants on a minor-league deal in early January and should have a decent chance to win the job. A six-month recovery would allow Garcia to return in August, so there's no guarantee he's able to see the field this season.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Drives in two Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia started behind the dish and went 1-for-4 with a pair of RBI in Thursday's 8-3 win over Colorado.

Garcia made just his second start behind the dish since returning to the majors Sept. 1 and his eighth start at catcher overall in 2019. The 26-year-old has struggled under the bright lights this season, slashing a meager .150/.227/.325 over 44 plate appearances after slashing .286/.308/.492 in a similarly small sample size last year. Garcia doesn't hold any current fantasy value sitting behind two veteran catchers on the depth chart.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Starting in return to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday and is starting at first base and batting seventh versus the Padres, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

It is Garcia's fourth stint in the majors this season, the first three of which all lasted 10 days or less. The 26-year-old should receive a longer look this time around thanks to September's expanded roster. Garcia is 3-for-18 with four runs scored and two home runs in seven contests.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Shipped back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Garcia spent just two days in the majors, going 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored in his lone appearance. Fernando Abad was added to the active roster in his place.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Garcia will fill the spot on the 25-man roster vacated by left-handed pitcher Connor Menez, who was optioned to Triple-A on Monday. Garcia struggled in his limited major-league opportunities in May and June, going just 3-for-16 during that time, although he managed to crack two home runs.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Garcia will head back to the minors to free up a spot on the roster for Buster Posey (hamstring), who was activated from the injured list Wednesday. In three appearances during his most recent stint with the big club, Garcia went 2-for-10 with a home run.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Goes deep in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Garcia made his third start over the last four days due to the Giants' lefty-heavy schedule. The 26-year-old has delivered two homers in just 17 plate appearances in the majors, which falls in line with the career-best .250 isolated power he posted with Triple-A Sacramento. Garcia's uptick in power boosts his stock as a young catcher, but sitting on the short side of a platoon with Stephen Vogt and the nearing return of Buster Posey (hamstring) dampens any fantasy appeal.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Starts in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 1-for-3 in Wednesday's 7-0 loss to the Mets.

Garcia made his first start since being called up in place of Buster Posey (hamstring) with a lefty on the bump. There is currently no timetable for Posey's return, but the injury was described as a mild strain. Even with the starting backstop sidelined, it is Stephen Vogt who will gain the most playing time in Posey's absence while Garcia serves on the short side of the catching platoon.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Rejoins Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was called up from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Garcia had a week-long stint in the majors in mid-May and makes his return to the Giants with Buster Posey nursing a sore hamstring. There's been no indication of a move to the injured list for Posey, so Garcia will likely remain in a reserve role while Stephen Vogt enters the starting lineup Sunday.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Sent to minor leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Garcia will head back down to the minors as the Giants prepare for the return of Buster Posey (concussion) from the 7-day injured list. In Garcia's brief time with the big-league club, he went 1-for-6 with a two-run homer and a walk over three games.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Delivers first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Garcia took Edwin Jackson deep in the second inning to record his first home run of the season. He's gotten some playing time with Buster Posey (concussion) on the injured list, serving primarily as the team's backup catcher. Wednesday marked just his second start in the past six games, making it difficult for him to accrue significant stats.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Makes first start of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored in Thursday's 12-11 loss to the Rockies.

Buster Posey (concussion) was placed on the 7-day IL on Thursday, prompting Garcia's promotion to the majors. The left-handed Stephen Vogt is likely the main beneficiary while Posey and Erik Kratz (hamstring) are out, with Garcia occupying the short side of a platoon behind the dish. The 26-year-old slashed .286/.308/.492 during his September callup in 2018, but fantasy owners will find it hard to tap into that so long as Vogt starts against righties.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Moves up to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants recalled Garcia from Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday.

Garcia is expected to step in as the No. 2 backstop behind Stephen Vogt after the Giants surprisingly placed top catcher Buster Posey (concussion) on the 7-day injured list. The 26-year-old had delivered a .800 OPS over 65 plate appearances at Triple-A, but making consistent contact was an issue (47.7 K%).

March 26, 2019 11:28 AM
Giants' Aramis Garcia: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The Giants recently added Erik Kratz and Tom Murphy to their catching depth chart, forcing Garcia to open the season in the minors. The 26-year-old hit .286/.308/.492 with four homers during a September callup in 2018 (19 games), so he figures to get another shot with the big club at some point in 2019.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: New acquisition hurts roster shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is in jeopardy of not making the Opening Day roster after manager Bruce Bochy announced that Erik Kratz will back up Buster Posey to begin the season, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Garcia was slated to begin the year as Posey's backup, but GM Farhan Zaidi brought in Kratz last minute and Bochy was apparently comfortable enough with the 38-year-old to usurp his younger option. Bochy did not rule out the possibility of Garcia being kept as a third catcher and bench bat, but an unorthodox move like that would really cripple the manager's lineup flexibility at other positions. For now, it seems like the 26-year-old will begin the year with Triple-A Sacramento.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Slated to make Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia appears to have secured an Opening Day roster spot with the Giants after the team released Rene Rivera on Saturday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Garcia, Rivera and Stephen Vogt had been competing in spring training for the backup role at catcher behind long-time starter Buster Posey. Though Vogt still remains on the spring roster, he's returning from offseason shoulder surgery and has a history of concussions, making it unlikely that he'll break camp with the big club. So long as Posey stays healthy, Garcia doesn't project to make more than three starts in a given week, which puts a significant cap on his fantasy upside.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Cranks second spring homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 2-for-4 with a home run and a pair of RBI in Sunday's split-squad loss to the Athletics.

Garcia's solo blast off Blake Treinen was the catcher's second long ball this spring. The 26-year-old is competing against Rene Rivera and Stephen Vogt for the Giants' backup catcher job. Garcia's early power and strong results in the majors last September (.286/.308/.492 over 65 plate appearances) give him an early lead in the race.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Crushes two-run shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to San Diego.

Garcia was the lone bright spot for the Giants' offense Wednesday, delivering his fourth homer through 54 plate appearances this season. The 25-year-old also drew his first walk in the majors. Garcia's start came behind the dish, but the catcher has been seeing the majority of playing time down the stretch at first base.
