Garlick (oblique) is among the Twins' available reserves for Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.
While he was still a member of the Phillies, Garlick finished the past season on the injured list with a right oblique strain, but his availability for the Twins' spring opener indicates that he's fully healthy heading into 2021. Garlick is expected to replace starting right fielder Max Kepler midway through Sunday's contest in what will be first opportunity to impress in his bid for a bench role on the Twins' Opening Day roster.
Garlick (oblique) was claimed off waivers by the Twins on Thursday.
Garlick was designated for assignment by Atlanta on Friday, but he'll land a spot on Minnesota's 40-man roster ahead of spring training. The 29-year-old has appeared in 42 big-league games over the past two seasons, hitting .214 with three home runs and nine RBI during that time. He'll now attempt to secure a depth role on the Twins' major-league roster in 2021.
Garlick (oblique) was designated for assignment by Atlanta on Friday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Garlick was claimed off waivers by Atlanta in late January, but he'll be removed from the 40-man roster to make room for Marcell Ozuna, who re-signed with the team Friday.

Garlick (oblique) was claimed off waivers by Atlanta on Saturday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Garlick will find another spot on a 40-man roster after he was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Monday. His 2020 season ended early after suffering a right oblique strain in September after he made just 23 plate appearances for Philadelphia. He's appeared in 42 games for the Dodgers and Phillies over the past two seasons, hitting .214 with three home runs and nine RBI during that time.
The Phillies designated Garlick (oblique) for assignment Monday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
The transaction clears a spot on the 40-man roster for reliever Archie Bradley, whom the Phillies signed to a one-year, $6 million contract. Before suffering a right oblique strain in mid-September that ended his 2020 campaign two weeks early, Garlick went 3-for-22 (.136 average) with three RBI in 12 games with the Phillies.
Garlick was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right oblique strain Wednesday.
Garlick left Tuesday's game against the Mets with an oblique injury, and he underwent an MRI on Wednesday. The results of the examination aren't yet known, but Garlick will be forced to miss at least 10 days due to the injury, which should sideline him for the remainder of the regular season. The Phillies called up 2016 No. 1 overall pick Mickey Moniak to serve as an option in the outfield going forward.
Phillies manager Joe Girardi said Garlick (oblique) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Garlick joined the Phillies' growing list of injured players Tuesday when he was removed from the team's 4-1 win over the Mets with the oblique injury. The MRI should help the Phillies gain clarity on the severity of the strain, allowing the team to determine whether or not Garlick will require a trip to the 10-day injured list. Even if Garlick's oblique injury proves to be more of a day-to-day concern, the Phillies are still expected to call up 2016 No. 1 overall pick Mickey Moniak to provide some reinforcement in the outfield.
Garlick was removed from Tuesday's win over the Mets with an oblique injury, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
The 28-year-old batted eighth and started in left field, but he was lifted for a pinch hitter during the fourth inning. Garlick should be considered day-to-day until the team provides more information on the injury.
Garlick went 1-for-5 with a double and three RBI Saturday as the Phillies took care of the Marlins 12-6.
Garlick was hitless until the eighth when he roped a bases-clearing double down the third-base line to extend the Phillies' lead to 12-5. The 28-year-old is hitting .188/.188/.250 with three hits (two singles and a double) and three RBI in 16 at-bats at the major-league level this season.
Garlick was recalled to the major-league roster Sunday.
Both Jay Bruce (quadriceps) and Roman Quinn (concussion) were placed on the injured list Sunday, leaving the Phillies thin in the outfield. While not likely to be a regular in the lineup, Garlick should see some at-bats when the starters need rest.
Garlick was optioned to the Phillies' alternate training site Thursday.
He is 0-for-5 with two strikeouts in limited work this season. Phil Gosselin and Roman Quinn will start in the outfield next to Bryce Harper in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.
Garlick remains on the Phillies' 28-man roster, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Reggie McClain (shoulder) was initially expected to return to the active roster Tuesday to take Garlick's place, but McClain will remain on the injured list. As a result, Garlick will remain in his depth role on the major-league roster.
Garlick was optioned to the Phillies' alternate training site Tuesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Garlick was added to the 28-man roster Sunday to fill in for Roman Quinn (undisclosed) after Quinn was placed on the COVID-19 injured list as a precautionary measure. However, Quinn was reinstated Tuesday after testing negative, so Garlick will return to the secondary site. The 28-year-old didn't appear in any games while he was on the active roster.
Garlick was recalled prior to Sunday's game against the Mets, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Roman Quinn (undisclosed) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move. The Phillies' outfield depth is being tested, and Garlick could get some starts in the short term as a result. Last year he hit .250/.321/.521 with three home runs and a 35.8 percent strikeout rate in 53 plate appearances for the Dodgers.
The Phillies recalled Garlick from their alternate training site ahead of Sunday's doubleheader with the Braves, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
He'll serve as the 29th man for the twin bill, but Garlick could be headed back to Lehigh Valley immediately after Sunday's games conclude. Garlick cracked the Phillies' Opening Day roster out of summer camp and made two plate appearances before he was optioned to the alternate site Wednesday.
Garlick was optioned to the Phillies' alternate training site after Wednesday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Garlick didn't see the field through Philadelphia's first six games, so it's hardly surprising he fell victim to roster cuts with the team needing to trim to 28 players. The 28-year-old could still rejoin the Phillies later in the season to provide outfield depth.
Garlick will be a member of the Phillies' Opening Day roster after being recalled by the Phillies on Thursday.
Garlick, Neil Walker and Phil Gosselin wound up winning bench spots, with Josh Harrison and Logan Forsythe losing out. As a righty, Garlick could make the occasional start against southpaws, potentially giving regular left fielder Andrew McCutchen the chance to rest his legs as a designated hitter. The 28-year-old Garlick has received just 53 career big-league plate appearances, though his .250/.321/.521 line in those limited opportunities for the Dodgers last season suggests he could be competent in a part-time role.
Garlick is projected to miss out on the Phillies' Opening Day roster but has at least an outside chance to make the team, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Garlick is competing with a quartet of veteran infielders (Neil Walker, Josh Harrison, Logan Forsythe and Phil Gosselin) for what should be the team's final three bench spots. Each member of that group can play a passable left field as well, so that added flexibility could give them the edge over Garlick, who is purely an outfielder. Being on the 40-man roster is a point in Garlick's favor, but he's also the least experienced of the group, as he's received just 53 career big-league plate appearances.
Garlick was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Garlick, who was acquired from the Dodgers in February, hit just .227 with 12 strikeouts in 24 plate appearances before spring training was placed on pause. In his first taste of the majors in 2019, the outfielder hit .250/.321/.521 in 30 games.
Garlick was traded from the Dodgers to the Phillies on Saturday in exchange for left-hander Tyler Gilbert.
Garlick made his first appearance in the majors last season, where he hit .250/.321/.521 with three home runs and six RBI over 48 at-bats as he served in a platoon role against left-handers. He was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Sunday, but he'll find a new home with the Phillies. Given the production that the 28-year-old has shown in the past, it wouldn't be surprising to see him in the majors at some point in 2020. Nick Martini was designated for assignment in order to make room on the 40-man roster.
