by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Likely to need surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is evaluating multiple options to address his sprained left knee, but he will likely need surgery, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Garcia had to be helped off by trainers after suffering the knee sprain during a long toss session Thursday and was later placed on the 10-day injured list. A detailed recovery timeline has yet to be revealed for the right-hander, but given that surgery appears to be in his future, he seems almost certain to miss the rest of June and likely a large portion of July.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Placed on 10-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left knee sprain Thursday.

Garcia went down while playing long toss ahead of Thursday's game and had to be helped off the field by trainers. He's apparently dealing with a knee injury that will warrant a trip to the injured list, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be sidelined longer than the minimum of 10 days. Right-hander Beau Burrows was recalled from Triple-A Toledo to fill Garcia's place in the bullpen.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Looks good in 2021 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia pitched three hitless, scoreless innings of relief in Monday's extra-inning loss to the Brewers. He walked one and struck out two.

Detroit started Tyler Alexander and turned it into a bullpen game, so Garcia's length was very valuable in the 10-inning affair. The righty was making his season debut after getting called up earlier in the day. He pitched 21 innings for the Tigers in 2020 and turned in an abysmal 8.14 ERA, but the team seems high on the 23-year-old after selecting him in last year's Rule 5 draft from the Yankees. Garcia could stick around if he remains this effective.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Joining big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia will be recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Monday.

Although Tyler Alexander will start Monday's bullpen game at Milwaukee, Garcia will likely make his 2021 debut as a middle reliever, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Garcia has a 3.20 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB across 19.2 innings (four starts) at Triple-A this season.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Activated, sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (abdomen) was activated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Double-A Erie on Friday.

The 23-year-old landed on the shelf at the start of the season after he didn't pitch during spring training due to an appendectomy, and he won't join the big-league club now that he's healthy. Garcia made his major-league debut with Detroit last season and had an 8.14 ERA across 21 innings.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: IL move official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers placed Garcia (abdominal strain) on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Evan Woodbery of reports.

The transaction clears a spot in the Tigers' Opening Day bullpen for Derek Holland. Garcia didn't pitch at all this spring while recovering from an appendectomy, so he'll likely be sidelined for longer than the minimum 10 days.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Likely bound for IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager A.J. Hinch confirmed Sunday that he expects Garcia (appendectomy) to open the season on the 10-day injured list, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

The announcement doesn't come as a major surprise, given that the 23-year-old has yet to pitch in a Grapefruit League game after requiring the appendectomy shortly before reporting to spring training. Once activated from the IL, Garcia will likely fill a low-leverage role out of the Detroit bullpen.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Might start on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (abdomen) could begin the regular season on the injured list, Evan Woodbery of reports.

This isn't particularly surprising, as Garcia underwent an appendectomy in February and hasn't been able to appear in a Grapefruit League game yet. The righty is going to need some time to get back into game shape, so he looks unlikely for Opening Day. When Garcia is able to return, he should slot in as a middle-relief option for the Tigers.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Sidelined to begin camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia isn't currently working out after recently undergoing an appendectomy, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Garcia made 15 appearances (two starts) for the Tigers last year and posted an 8.14 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over 21 innings. It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined following his appendectomy, but the right-hander will likely prepare for a middle-relief role in 2021 once he resumes working out.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Earns first big-league win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (1-0) gave up one hit while also walking a batter in 1.1 scoreless innings in a win over the Indians on Friday.

After going down 5-0 early, the Tigers piled on seven runs in the fourth and never looked back, putting Garcia in line for his first major-league win. Despite the positive result, Garcia has been inconsistent in his inaugural season, giving up a whopping five home runs in 11.2 innings. He figures to stick as a middle reliever for the near future.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Pitching in doubleheader Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia will start the first game of a doubleheader Sunday against the Reds.

Garcia made his MLB debut in a start Tuesday, allowing three runs (two earned) across three innings. Sunday's game will be a seven-inning affair due to newly adopted doubleheader rules.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Making MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia will make his major-league debut as the starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Royals.

The Rule 5 pick recorded a modest 4.44 ERA in 20 starts for Double-A Trenton in the Yankees' system last year, striking out 23.2 percent of opposing batters. It's unclear what kind of workload he's expected to handle Tuesday.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Impresses manager Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia pitched well in an intrasquad game Wednesday and could lock up a bullpen spot with a few more strong showings in camp, Evan Woodbery of reports.

Garcia struck out three batters across 2.1 scoreless innings. The 22-year-old righty "threw the living fire out of the ball," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "The ball was jumping." Garcia was selected by the Tigers in the Rule 5 draft back in December. He'll need to spend 50 days on the active roster this season, otherwise his Rule 5 status will carry over to 2021. If the youngster continues to impress, the Tigers will likely find a way to keep him around.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Could benefit from expanded rosters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia could benefit if MLB expands rosters for the 2020 season and secure a spot in the Tigers' bullpen, Evan Woodbery of reports.

A Rule 5 pick in December, Garcia was on the roster bubble heading into spring training. But MLB will likely allow teams to use expanded rosters whenever the 2020 season starts, and that probably means deeper bullpens. This figures to benefit Garcia, who needs to be kept on the big-league roster all season or be offered back to the Yankees. The 22-year-old looked sharp in a limited Grapefruit League showing, so Detroit could find a regular role for him and keep him around heading into 2021.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Has strong spring showing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia posted a 2.70 ERA and and seven strikeouts across 6.2 Grapefruit League innings before MLB suspended play.

Garcia was a Rule 5 pick back in December, meaning he'll need to stay on the Tigers' big-league roster all season to avoid being assigned back to his most recent team, the Yankees. The 22-year-old spent all of last year at the Double-A level, so Detroit will likely use the righty in low-leverage situations as he gets acclimated to MLB competition.
