Josh Harrison remains the starter at second base in his absence.

Nationals' Luis Garcia: Scratched from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia's bruised heel was feeling better earlier in the day, but he evidently won't be able to start against the Rays. It's unclear whether he'll be available off the bench. Josh Harrison will take his place at second base.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia recorded his third multi-hit performance in his last four contests. He also added his first multi-RBI effort since Aug. 17, highlighted by a two-RBI double in the ninth inning. Garcia is now hitting .301/.329/.397 across 76 major-league plate appearances.

Nationals' Luis Garcia: Three-hit game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 3-for-4 with two runs scored Thursday against the Phillies.

All of Garcia's hits were singles and the performance extended his hitting streak to a modest three games. The 20-year-old rookie has been inconsistent in his big-league debut, but has managed a .290/.313/.387 line across 64 plate appearances to this point.

August 28, 2020 04:36 PM

Nationals' Luis Garcia: Swipes first MLB bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

The rookie swiped the first bag of his big-league career in the fourth inning. Garcia continues to find success since being added to the roster, hitting .333 (11-for-33) over his last nine games with a homer, a steal, three RBI and five runs.

August 24, 2020 07:24 PM
Nationals' Luis Garcia: Scores three times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 3-for-4 with three runs in Sunday's win against the Marlins.

Garcia has seen relatively consistent playing time since being added to the major-league roster, and he's been effective in his opportunities. He didn't demonstrate much power with three singles Sunday, but he crossed the plate three times as the Nationals put up nine runs in the win. Garcia is now hitting .357 with six runs and four RBI over eight games this year.

August 22, 2020 01:20 PM
Nationals' Luis Garcia: Not starting Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia isn't starting Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Marlins.

Garcia has been effective in his first taste of major-league action, but he'll take a seat for the first game of Saturday's twin bill. Josh Harrison will start at second base in his absence.

Nationals' Luis Garcia: On base four times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 3-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in Tuesday's 8-5 win over Atlanta.

The rookie paced a 17-hit barrage by the Nats, and he drew his first big-league walk for good measure. Garcia's MLB career is off to a flying start, as he's gone 6-for-17 through four games since being added to the roster. The 20-year-old has a chance to lock down the starting spot at second base with Starlin Castro (wrist) likely out for the rest of the regular season.

Nationals' Luis Garcia: Makes history with first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Monday's 7-6 loss to Atlanta.

When he took Touki Toussaint deep in the second inning, Garcia became the first player born in the 2000s to homer in a big-league game. He's now 3-for-13 to begin his MLB career with four RBI and four strikeouts, and Garcia will likely continue to see the bulk of the action at second base until Starlin Castro -- who, coincidentally, was the first player born in the 1990s to homer in the majors -- recovers from his wrist fracture.

Nationals' Luis Garcia: Two hits in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 2-for-5 with a double, a run scored and two RBI in Friday's 15-3 rout of the Orioles.

Called up for his big-league debut after Starlin Castro (wrist) landed on the injured list, Garcia showed off his plus hit tool right out of the gate, looping a single into left field in the third inning for his first MLB knock and then ripping a double to the wall in the right-field corner in the eighth for his first RBI. The Nats have veteran options like Asdrubal Cabrera or Josh Harrison available to fill in at second base if they choose, but the 20-year-old Garcia may get a long look at the keystone first.

Nationals' Luis Garcia: Contract selected by Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia's contract was selected by the Nationals on Friday, and he'll start in the team's originally scheduled game against the Orioles, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

Garcia was on the taxi squad for the team's current road trip, and he'll join the active roster after Starlin Castro was placed on the 10-day injured list with a broken right wrist. The 20-year-old will make his major-league debut against the Orioles and could carve out playing time at second base while Castro is sidelined.

August 11, 2020 10:44 AM
Nationals' Luis Garcia: Added to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is on the taxi squad for the Nationals' current 10-day road trip, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

While he's unlikely to get called up to the active roster, this does put Garcia one step closer to his big-league debut. The 20-year-old shortstop is the team's No. 2 fantasy prospect but has yet to see game action above Double-A, posting a .257/.280/.337 slash line over 129 games last year as a teenager with Harrisburg.
