Twins' Edgar Garcia: Booted from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was outrighted to Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday after clearing waivers, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

At some point after optioning Garcia to Triple-A over the weekend, the Twins removed him from the 40-man roster and exposed him to waivers, only for the 24-year-old right-hander to go unclaimed. Garcia has made 11 big-league appearances between St. Louis and Minnesota in 2021, giving up 20 earned runs on 19 hits and eight walks over 14.2 innings.

Twins' Edgar Garcia: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Friday.

Garcia spent a week on the big-league roster in his latest stint with the team, but things didn't go remotely well for him, as he allowed eight runs in 3.1 innings of work. He now owns a 12.27 ERA in 14.2 innings this season and a 7.74 mark in 57 innings for his career.

Twins' Edgar Garcia: Rejoins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on Friday.

Garcia was demoted to Triple-A on Thursday, but he never actually left the team as Miguel Sano headed to the paternity list. The right-hander has given up 12 runs across 11.1 major-league innings this season.

Twins' Edgar Garcia: Sent down Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Garcia made four relief appearances after he rejoined the Twins' bullpen last week, and he allowed four runs in seven innings. He'll head back to the minors after Andrew Albers and Kyle Barraclough were called up by Minnesota on Thursday.

Twins' Edgar Garcia: Called up by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on Monday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Garcia made four relief appearances at Triple-A St. Paul after he was claimed off waivers by the Twins on July 30, and he allowed two hits and a walk while striking out six in five scoreless innings. He'll provide an extra bullpen arm after Jorge Alcala (triceps) was placed on the 10-day injured list.

Twins' Edgar Garcia: Claimed by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was claimed off waivers by the Twins on Friday.

The 24-year-old was designated for assignment by the Reds earlier in the week, and he'll make his way to a new organization. Garcia struggled during a brief stint in the majors for Cincinnati with eight runs allowed over 4.1 frames. He's fared better at Triple-A with a 3.38 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 29:13 K:BB across 24 innings.

Reds' Edgar Garcia: DFA'd by Cincy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was designated for assignment by the Reds on Tuesday.

Garcia had his contract selected by the Reds last week and surrendered eight runs in four innings across four appearances. The right-hander could head to Triple-A Louisville, where he's spent most of the season, if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

Reds' Edgar Garcia: Contract selected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia's contract was selected by the Reds on Monday.

Garcia was designated for assignment back on Opening Day but remained in the Reds' organization. He's pitched well in 24 innings for Triple-A Louisville, posting a 29.6 percent strikeout rate and a 3.38 ERA, though he'll likely be limited to low-leverage innings during his time with the team, as he owns a 6.17 career ERA in 42.1 innings at the highest level.

Reds' Edgar Garcia: Outrighted to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia cleared waivers Saturday and was outrighted to the Reds' alternate training site.

Garcia is still just 24 years old, but he's shown very little in his 42.1 big-league innings thus far, struggling to a 6.17 ERA while walking 16.0 percent of opposing batters. With that track record, it's no surprise he passed through waivers unclaimed.

Reds' Edgar Garcia: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was designated for assignment by the Reds on Thursday.

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Louisville in March but will now be removed from the 40-man roster after Jonathan India's contract was selected by the Reds. Even if the right-hander is claimed off waivers, he's unlikely to serve in a high-leverage role.

Reds' Edgar Garcia: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Friday.

Garcia signed a big-league deal in December but won't break camp in the major-league bullpen. He owns a 6.17 ERA in 42.1 innings at the highest level, so there's no reason to believe he'll serve in a high-leverage role any time soon.

Reds' Edgar Garcia: Signs with Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia signed a major-league deal with Cincinnati on Wednesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

The 24-year-old was non-tendered by the Rays in early December, but he was able to receive another big-league opportunity. Garcia gave up four runs over 3.1 innings last season and had a 5.77 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 45:26 K:BB over 39 innings during the 2019 campaign.

Edgar Garcia: Non-tendered by Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was non-tendered by the Rays on Wednesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Considering he gave up four earned runs in 3.1 innings (four appearances) for the Rays last season, this doesn't come as a huge surprise. Garcia will look to catch on elsewhere as organizational bullpen depth.

Rays' Edgar Garcia: Sent to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to the alternate training site after Wednesday's win over the Yankees, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

The 23-year-old was acquired by the Rays from the Phillies in mid-August and joined the big-league roster shortly after the trade. Garcia allowed four runs on three hits with one strikeout and four walks over 3.1 innings while recording one save and two holds.

Rays' Edgar Garcia: Nabs first career save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia struck out one in two-thirds of an inning Tuesday to record his first career save in a 4-2 win over the Orioles.

Manager Kevin Cash seemed willing to allow Jalen Beeks to pick up a two-inning save, but when the lefty exited the game with elbow trouble, Garcia got the call and needed only five pitches (three strikes) to finish the job. The 23-year-old put up some interesting numbers in the minors for the Phillies before a rough big-league debut last year, and with Nick Anderson (forearm) on the shelf, Garcia could remain part of the Rays' closer committee.

Rays' Edgar Garcia: Called up from alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays recalled Garcia from their alternate training site Sunday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

Garcia will join the big club's relief corps as a replacement for bullpen ace NicK Anderson (forearm), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. The 23-year-old right-hander's first appearance with Tampa Bay will mark his team debut after he was acquired from the Phillies on Tuesday.

Rays' Edgar Garcia: Traded to Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was traded from the Phillies to the Rays on Tuesday in exchange for a player to be named later, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Garcia will report to the Rays' secondary training site for now. The reliever struggled to a 5.77 ERA in his 39-inning debut last season, with his 26.2 percent strikeout rate offset by a 15.1 percent walk rate and 2.5 HR/9. He's still just 23 years old, though, and the Rays have a reputation for improving pitchers, so there's a chance he's an effective weapon at some point down the line.

Phillies' Edgar Garcia: Cast off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Thursday.

Garcia made 37 appearances for the Phillies in 2019, posting a 5.77 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 45:26 K:BB across 39 innings. This move frees up a spot on the roster for prospect Alec Bohm, who was summoned to the majors in a corresponding move.

Phillies' Edgar Garcia: Shipped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Garcia is on track to open the season in the minors after compiling a 5.40 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 6:0 K:BB in five innings before spring training was suspended. The righty, who posted a 5.77 ERA and 10.4 K/9 in 39 innings as a rookie in 2019, figures to bounce between Philadelphia and Lehigh Valley in a middle-relief role in 2020.

Phillies' Edgar Garcia: Yields one run in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia allowed one run on two hits with one strikeout across two innings during a relief appearance against the Marlins on Sunday.

The Phillies elected to go with an opener and turn the season finale into a bullpen game. Garcia pitched as long as any Phillies pitcher in the loss. He finishes the season 2-0 with a 5.77 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 45 strikeouts in 39 innings.
