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.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Four-hit effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 4-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a pair of runs scored in Saturday's loss to St. Louis.

Garcia's four-hit day upped his batting average to .368 (14-for-38) over 12 games. The 25-year-old has now started six consecutive contests, with the majority coming at first base in place of Brandon Belt (knee). Garcia is striking out at an alarming rate (47.4 strikeout percentage), but that aggresive approach has resulted in three homers during his brief stint in the majors.

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

Garcia went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a strikeout in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

Garcia pulled San Francisco back within one on his solo homer in the eighth inning, though that's as close as the Giants would get in the 8-4 defeat. The 25-year-old has started four straight games -- three at first base and one behind the plate -- so he could continue seeing regular at-bats down the final stretch run of the season.

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

Garcia went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Rockies.

Garcia provided a go-ahead blast in the fourth inning, though the Giants would eventually drop this one by a 5-3 margin. With Buster Posey (hip) shut down for the remainder of the season, Garcia figures to see a couple of starts per week behind the plate backing up Nick Hundley.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Homers in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia made his first career start behind the dish Friday, going 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a win over the Mets.

Garcia's major-league debut went about as well as any rookie could hope. It was the 25-year-old's first start since being called up Aug. 26, so he appears to be the clear backup to veteran Nick Hundley now that Buster Posey (hip) has been shut down. Garcia produced double-digit home runs in all three of his previous full minor-league seasons, so he could generate fantasy interest in two-catcher leagues if the Giants -- who have waived the white flag on the 2018 campaign -- decide to give the rookie backstop more playing time in the final month of the season.

Giants' Aramis Garcia: Officially earns promotion to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was officially recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

As expected, the 25-year-old will head to the big leagues to replace Buster Posey (hip), who is out for the season, on the active roster. Garcia didn't hit above .240 at either Double-A or Triple-A this year, but he possesses a bit of pop, as his double-digit home runs three of the past four years suggest. He should get a decent amount of playing time along with Nick Hundley behind the dish the rest of the way.

August 25, 2018 04:56 PM
Giants' Aramis Garcia: Joining Giants on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia will be called up from Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Garcia was a likely candidate to join the team once rosters expanded in September, but with Buster Posey (hip) scheduled for surgery Monday, he will head up to the big-league level a little earlier than expected. Garcia recent earned a promotion to Sacramento, where he's hitting .237 with a double and four RBI in 10 games. He will likely see a decent amount of playing time alongside Nick Hundley as the Giants fall out of the playoff picture.

August 6, 2018 05:16 PM
Giants' Aramis Garcia: Promoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was promoted to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Garcia is the only catcher on the Giants' 40-man roster outside of major-leaguers Buster Posey and Nick Hundley, leaving him well-positioned for a September call-up. He hasn't given much reason to believe he'll be a fantasy asset if that happens, however, as he hit just .233/.287/.395 for Double-A Richmond prior to his promotion.
