Garlick (groin) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.
The Twins announced Thursday that Garlick will undergo surgery to repair his sports hernia, so his move to the 60-day IL doesn't come as a major surprise. Whether the 29-year-old is able to return this season remains to be seen. Jake Cave (back) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list.
Garlick (groin) will undergo surgery to repair his sports hernia, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Garlick began a rehab assignment at Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday, but he continued to have issues with his injury during his return to game action. It's not yet clear whether the outfielder will be able to return in 2021 following his procedure.

Garlick has been out since early June with a sports hernia. There were reports in early July that he might need surgery, but the Twins evidently feel confident about his progress.
Garlick may still need surgery to address a sports hernia, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "It's a unique injury that he's dealing with, and I think we're going to be feeling it out till the very end," said manager Rocco Baldelli.
Garlick went on the injured list with a sports hernia June 9. It's not a good sign that he doesn't have a timetable for a return at this point and it sounds like there's a risk he could miss the rest of the season.
Garlick was placed on the 10-day injured list with a sports hernia Wednesday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Garlick went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees, but he's apparently dealing with an injury that will force him to miss additional time. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to return, but Gilberto Celestino was called up by Minnesota in a corresponding move.
Garlick went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk, an additional run scored and three strikeouts during Tuesday's 7-4 loss at Baltimore.
The 29-year-old put the Twins on the board with a solo shot during the third inning, and he scored again during the seventh on a single from Alex Kirilloff. Garlick owns a .253/.284/.494 slash line with four home runs, nine RBI and 15 runs, and he could continue to see regular playing time given Minnesota's injuries in the outfield.
Garlick will start in right field and bat eighth Wednesday against the White Sox.
Garlick has seen most of his starts against left-handed pitching this season, but he'll draw into the lineup for a second straight game against a right-hander (Lucas Giolito) after facing off against Lance Lynn in Tuesday's 5-4 win. Though he's gone 0-for-9 over his past two starts and is sitting on an underwhelming .269 on-base average for the season, Garlick looks poised to stick in a near-everyday role for the time being due to the Twins' lack of healthy alternatives in the outfield. All of Byron Buxton (hip), Alex Kirilloff (wrist) and Jake Cave (back) currently reside on the injured list.
Garlick went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 7-3 win over Detroit.
Garlick took Detroit starter Tarik Skubal deep on the fifth pitch of the game. The homer was Garlick's first of the season. He's played a part-time role for Minnesota with four RBI and seven runs scored in 45 plate appearances. The 29-year-old could play a more significant role in the short term with Byron Buxton (hip) expected to miss multiple weeks.
Garlick was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.
The 29-year-old tested positive for the virus in mid-April but has cleared league protocols and will rejoin the team on the final day of the month. Garlick appeared in 12 games prior to the absence and went 7-for-25 with three doubles, three RBI and six runs. He should work as a reserve outfielder with Max Kepler also returning from the COVID-19 IL.
Garlick could return from the COVID-19 injured list by the weekend after he underwent a final round of tests, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Garlick underwent an electrocardiogram test on his pulmonary systems, the final step before being cleared by MLB to return from the COVID-19 list. He's been out since testing positive for the virus April 17.
Garlick tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday and will be placed on the injured list, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
The 29-year-old is the latest member of the Twins to test positive for the virus, and Saturday's game against the Angels was postponed with additional testing and contact tracing being conducted. Garlick will be unavailable for the near future and won't rejoin the team until he clears the COVID-19 protocols.
Garlick is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners.
Garlick went 5-for-12 with a double and three runs while hitting out of the two hole in each of the Twins' last three games, but he still looks to be stuck in the short side of a platoon in the corner outfield with Jake Cave. Each of Garlick's three starts came against left-handed pitchers, but he'll take a seat Sunday in favor of Cave with right-hander Chris Flexen on the hill for Seattle.
Garlick went 2-for-5 with a RBI, a double and a run scored in Thursday's 10-2 win over Seattle.
The outfielder is hitting .417 in 12 at-bats. As of now, Garlick remains the backup left fielder behind Jake Cave, but Cave has struggled to start the season and may yield playing time if he doesn't improve at the plate. A long-time minor leaguer, Garlick will need to keep hitting if he wants to keep his roster spot when top prospects like Alex Kirilloff are deemed ready for promotion.
Garlick has made Minnesota's 26-man Opening Day roster, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Brent Rooker was surprisingly sent to the minors, leaving Garlick as the lone right-handed bat in the left field mix. He could begin the season in a platoon with Jake Cave in left field, with Luis Arraez also getting starts as well..
Garlick and Brent Rooker are in competition for the final spot in Minnesota's outfield, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Garlick is hitting .314 (11-for-35) with five home runs this spring.
It would be a surprise if the Twins picked Garlick (at age 29 a minor-league journeyman) over Rooker since Rooker is a top prospect who showed a spark last season by hitting .316/.381/.579 in seven games before suffering a season-ending broken right forearm. Still, Garlick has been impressive this spring and has put himself in position for an early callup if he's sent to Triple-A.
Garlick went 2-for-3 with a home run in Sunday's spring training win over Baltimore. He's hitting .375 (9-for-24) with four home runs this spring.
Garlick is competing for a reserve outfield role with the Twins. He's a long shot to make the final roster despite the strong spring. The Twins do need a right-handed outfield bat on the bench, however. He won't need to go through waivers if sent to the minors, so he'll likely add depth at Triple-A and could be called up later this summer.
Garlick is 2-for-8 with two home runs in four spring training games.
Garlick is competing for a final spot in the outfield. He's a long shot, but the Twins may need a right-handed bat on the bench with so many left-handed hitting outfielders (Alex Kirilloff, Jake Cave, Luis Arraez and Max Kepler) on the roster. He would also need to go through waivers if sent to Triple-A, so a strong spring could win him a reserve role with another major-league team.
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.
