Rangers' Adolis Garcia: Delay impacts roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia batted .318 (7-for-22) with three home runs, seven RBI, five runs scored along with one stolen base and one caught stealing over 14 Cactus League appearances.

Garcia is a powerful bat from the right side, which could be useful to the lefty-dominant Rangers despite the significant swing-and-miss in his game. He entered camp as a long shot to make the roster, but those chances improved when Willie Calhoun sustained a fractured jaw. The thought was that the versatile Nick Solak would start in left field in place of Calhoun, while Garcia and Scott Heineman would duke it out for the fifth outfielder role. And if Solak's position flexibility was needed elsewhere on the diamond, all the better for Garcia. However, the delay caused by the coronavirus pandemic means Calhoun could be ready by the time play resumes. In that event, expect Garcia to start the season at Triple-A Nashville.

Rangers' Adolis Garcia: Acquired by Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was traded to the Rangers on Saturday in exchange for cash considerations.

The 27-year-old was designated for assignment by the Cardinals on Wednesday, but he was able to find a new home with the Rangers via trade. Garcia spent 2019 with Triple-A Memphis, where he recorded a .818 OPS with 32 home runs and 96 RBI. He has limited major-league experience, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him spend most of his time at the Triple-A level. Jimmy Herget was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Cardinals' Adolis Garcia: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was designated for assignment on Wednesday.

After making his big-league debut in 2018, Garcia didn't spend any time in the majors last season. In 132 games for Triple-A Memphis, he hit .253/.301/.517, good for just an 89 wRC+ despite a fair amount of power. The move makes room on the 40-man roster for the newly-signed Kwang Hyun Kim.

Cardinals' Adolis Garcia: Optioned to Memphis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.

Garcia spent some time in the majors last year but was a long shot to open the season with the big-league club. He'll return to Memphis, where he hit .256/.281/.500 in 112 games last season.

Cardinals' Adolis Garcia: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was called up from Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday.

Garcia was likely going to rejoin the big-league team this weekend when rosters expand to 40 players, but Jedd Gyorko's placement on the DL due to a groin injury has brought the outfielder back up a few days earlier. During five games with the Cardinals earlier this month, Garcia went 1-for-11 with a single and five strikeouts in his first cup of coffee in the majors. He will be utilized as a reserve outfielder and isn't expected to see much playing time with the Redbirds fighting for a spot in the postseason.

Cardinals' Adolis Garcia: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

Garcia spent eight days on the roster filling in for the injured Tyler O'Neill (groin). He went 1-for-11 in his time with the club. With O'Neill returning from the disabled list, Garcia will head back to the minors. Now that he's on the 40-man roster, Garcia will have the chance to return in September, or sooner should another Cardinals outfielder get injured.

Cardinals' Adolis Garcia: Contract purchased by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia's contract was purchased by the Cardinals on Monday.

The promotion comes on the back of an excellent last 30 games for the 25-year-old outfielder, who hit .348/.370/.765 with 12 homers over that stretch. Those numbers are far better than the mediocre .269/.296/.531 overall line he's posted for Triple-A Memphis this season. Garcia, who came over from Cuba in 2016, has a strong arm and good gap power made better by plus speed, but his bat doesn't project to be particularly special and his profile is held back by a lack of plate discipline and poor instincts on the basepaths. Injuries to Dexter Fowler (foot) and Tyler O'Neill (groin), who was placed on the 10-day disabled list in a corresponding move, open up the possibility for regular at-bats for Garcia in the short term.

Cardinals' Adolis Garcia: Experiencing power surge in Memphis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is slashing .353/.375/.765 with 16 extra-base hits (six doubles, one triple, nine home runs) and 21 RBI over 88 plate appearances at Triple-A Memphis in July.

Garcia has matched his combined homer total for the first three months of the season with his July explosion, and he's been especially hot over the last seven games: The promising 25-year-old is 15-for-32 with six round-trippers, 12 RBI, one walk and 11 runs over that stretch. The sample includes a memorable three-homer, eight-RBI day last Thursday in a 12-3 win over Salt Lake, as well as five multi-hit efforts overall. The surge has already boosted Garcia's season average 14 points to .263, while his slugging percentage currently sits at an impressive .509. Garcia certainly looks to be approaching big-league readiness in many aspects of his game, but plate discipline and patience (22.0 percent strikeout rate, 3.8 percent walk rate) could still use improvement.

Cardinals' Adolis Garcia: Struggling at Triple-A level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is slashing just .205/.253/.361 with 15 extra-base hits (nine doubles, one triple, five home runs) and 18 RBI over 179 plate appearances with Triple-A Memphis.

A year ago, Garcia was a rising star in the Cardinals' organization, thriving with the Redbirds in his first exposure to Triple-A pitching. The then-25-year-old had slashed an impressive .301/.342/.478 over 40 games after a promotion from Double-A Springfield, where he'd compiled 35 extra-base hits (23 doubles, 12 homers) across 342 plate appearances. However, the new season has brought Garcia his first taste of professional adversity stateside, with a couple of factors playing a role in his struggles. Garcia is undoubtedly being held back in part by a .252 BABIP, but he's also seen a bump in strikeout rate from 21.1 percent to a career-high 26.3 percent thus far in 2018.

Cardinals' Jose Adolis Garcia: Promoted to Triple-A Memphis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was promoted to Triple-A Memphis on Monday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The emerging Cuban appears to be on the fast track to the big leagues, as the Cardinals needed to see just 66 games from him at Double-A Springfield before promoting him to the next level. Garcia was impressive in his first exposure to pro ball, slashing .284/.342/.432 with 23 extra-base hits (17 doubles, six homers), 34 RBI, nine stolen bases and 27 runs over that stretch. His ability to play all three outfield spots -- coupled with the recent promotion of Randal Grichuk -- opened up an opportunity for Garcia to be tried out at the next level of competition.

Cardinals' Jose Adolis Garcia: Thriving at Double-A level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is ranked in the top 10 in slugging percentage (.515), OBP (.403) and OPS (.918) in the Texas League over 75 plate appearances for Double-A Springfield, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The 24-year-old also has a .303 average, three homers and nine RBI following a 2-for-4 effort Sunday, and he's a candidate for a promotion to Triple-A Memphis if playing time opens up with the Redbirds. Garcia struggled with the Cardinals this spring over a brief stint (13 at-bats) but appears to be getting the better of Double-A pitching already, prompting speculation about an ascension in the near future.

Cardinals' Jose Adolis Garcia: Optioned to Triple-A on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Monday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Garcia will head to the minors to get some much-needed seasoning after hitting .154 with with no home runs and one RBI over 13 spring at-bats. The 24-year-old outfielder signed with the Cardinals on Feb. 25 and was named MVP of the top Cuban baseball league in 2016 on the strength of a .315/.395/.517 line.
