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.

Phillies' Edgar Garcia: Recalled to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday.

Garcia was recalled to provide bullpen depth as the Phillies made a series of moves, including the demotion of Nick Pivetta and the placement of Juan Nicasio (shoulder) on the injured list. Garcia has worked 26.1 innings with the Phillies this season, racking up a 6.15 ERA and 1.71 WHIP.

Phillies' Edgar Garcia: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Garcia failed to pitch in a game since begin promoted Sunday. He owns a 6.15 ERA and 1.71 WHIP with 29 punchouts over 26.1 innings this season in the big leagues.

Phillies' Edgar Garcia: Rejoins major-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

Garcia makes his way back to the majors after spending the 10-day minimum in the minors following his most recent demotion. The 22-year-old has a 6.15 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 29:18 K:BB across 26.1 innings this season.

Phillies' Edgar Garcia: Shifts to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies optioned Garcia to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

Garcia and Austin Davis were one of five relievers needed to cover the final 6.2 frames of Wednesday's 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. With the Phillies in need of a couple fresh arms in the bullpen for Thursday's series finale, Garcia and Davis were swapped out in favor of Cole Irvin and Fernando Salas.

Phillies' Edgar Garcia: Walks three batters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia walked three batters while allowing run and a hit in two-thirds of an inning in Monday's blowout loss to the Dodgers.

Garcia was hardly the only pitcher to have a bad day Monday, as the Phillies allowed 16 runs on the day. He was, however, the only one who suffered the embarrassment of being replaced by a position player (Roman Quinn), who was able to get out of the jam Garcia created without allowing further damage. Garcia has shown very little in 25.1 innings for the Phillies this season, posting a 6.04 ERA while walking 14.2 percent of opposing batters.

Phillies' Edgar Garcia: Brought back to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday.

The 22-year-old had just been sent down Sunday, so hopefully he hadn't yet unpacked his bags. He owns an unimpressive 7.36 ERA with a 15:11 K:BB in 14.2 frames for the Phillies this season. Jerad Eickhoff (biceps) landed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

June 16, 2019 12:48 PM
Phillies' Edgar Garcia: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Garcia was called up in early May and initially performed fairly well with a 3.46 ERA through his first 13 innings, but he allowed seven runs across his last three outings. The 22-year-old had a dominant 1.65 ERA and 0.75 WHIP with the IronPigs prior to his promotion.

Phillies' Edgar Garcia: Summoned to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Garcia will take the roster spot of Enyel De Los Santos, who was optioned to Lehigh Valley following Sunday's win over the Nationals. The 22-year-old Garcia impressed through 13 appearances with the IronPigs prior to earning a promotion, compiling a 1.65 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 23:6 K:BB in 16.1 innings. He'll likely fill a lower-leverage relief role during his first stint with the big club, though that could change if his success from Triple-A translates to the majors.

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

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Garcia allowed four runs in 4.2 innings in his first taste of Triple-A last season, though his 3.32 ERA at Double-A Reading hints at some promise. He'll be an option if several big-league relievers get injured this season.

Phillies' Edgar Garcia: Placed on 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was added to Philadelphia's 40-man roster Tuesday.

Garcia got rocked through five games with Triple-A Lehigh Valley last year (four earned runs over 4.2 frames), but he experienced success for the majority of the season with Double-A Reading, posting a 3.32 ERA with 68 punchouts across 59.2 innings. The Phillies have elected to protect him from the Rule 5 draft by adding him to the 40-man roster.
