Reds' Jose Garcia: Riding pine Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

The 22-year-old's overall numbers are downright ugly, but Garcia has picked up a little momentum at the plate, recording seven hits in his last 21 at-bats. He will give way to Freddy Galvis at shortstop Sunday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reds' Jose Garcia: Sitting out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

Garcia will hit the bench for the second time in three games, this time giving way to Freddy Galvis at shortstop after Kyle Farmer received the nod in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Pirates. Though the Reds don't appear ready to pull the plug on Garcia as their everyday shortstop just yet, the 22-year-old has gotten off to an underwhelming 5-for-34 (.147 average) start to his big-league career.

Reds' Jose Garcia: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

The 22-year-old has struggled to find his footing in the big leagues early on, slashing .161/.188/.161 with one stolen base through nine games. He will sit Sunday after five consecutive starts, with Kyle Farmer stepping in at shortstop against right-hander Chad Kuhl.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reds' Jose Garcia: Gets call to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia's contract was purchased by the Reds on Wednesday. He is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth against the Brewers.

Garcia, one of the team's top prospects, is set to join the big club despite having never played above High-A. While the Reds will waste no time getting the 22-year-old into their lineup, it would be quite the feat if Garcia proved to be a quality big-league hitter in 2020 given his lack of experience above High-A. Pedro Strop was designated for assignment to free up a roster spot for Garcia.

Reds' Jose Garcia: Could debut this year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia could contribute in the majors this season, according to manager David Bell, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Bell noted how strong Garcia is coming on in camp, despite the fact he has never played above High-A. Another factor in Garcia's favor is that the Reds basically have nothing behind Freddy Galvis (who has been mentoring Garcia) at shortstop. This is a nice vote of confidence from Bell, but it would be borderline unprecedented for Garcia to skip over Double-A and Triple-A and be a quality big-league hitter in 2020 if he were forced into action due to his plus defense at shortstop.

Reds' Jose Garcia: Invited to summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia will be a part of the Reds' 60-man player pool this season.

He will not be training at Great American Ball Park with the Reds' top players, but Garcia is now eligible to potentially make his big-league debut this season. That said, the 22-year-old shortstop has never even played at Double-A, so don't look for him to assume a prominent role until 2021 or 2022.

Reds' Jose Garcia: Two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia homered twice in Tuesday's spring training loss against the Angels, despite the wind blowing in, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Garcia is getting some extra playing time in spring training with Freddy Galvis out for the short-term, but he impressed manager David Bell. "He's fun to watch," Bell said. "He's a talented young player. It will be fun to see him. We'll be sure to get him some playing time this spring. It will be a good experience for him." Garcia is ticketed for Double-A after breaking out at High-A Daytona last year.

Reds' Jose Garcia: Spring training invite
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was given an invitation to the Reds' big-league spring training camp, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Garcia broke out last year at High-A Daytona after initially struggling following his signing as a minor league free agent from Cuba. This year will help the Reds determine whether he's their shortstop of the future, or just a player that performed well while being a little old for the level.

Reds' Jose Garcia: Steals base in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (shoulder) went 1-for-3 with a double and a stolen base in High-A Daytona's loss to Florida on Tuesday.

A slide into second base Saturday resulted in a shoulder injury and led to a brief absence from the lineup, but Garcia seems be fine now. The steal was his ninth in 11 attempts, and he has now hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games with Daytona. His .727 OPS ranks third on the team among players with 100 plate appearances.

Reds' Jose Garcia: Suffers shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia exited Saturday's game at High-A Daytona with a right shoulder injury, Tortugas broadcaster Justin Rocke reports.

Garcia sustained the injury sliding into second base and the opposing second baseman fell on him. Per Rocke, the injury doesn't appear to be a serious concern and Garcia should be considered day-to-day.

Reds' Jose Garcia: Healthy at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (elbow) returned to action for High-A Daytona on Friday, going 1-for-5 with a strikeout and a run.

He exited Thursday's game with an elbow injury, but it was apparently very minor, as he was right back in there the next day.

Reds' Jose Garcia: Exits with elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia exited Thursday's game for High-A Daytona with an elbow injury, Tortugas play-by-play announcer Justin Rocke reports.

He was hit by a pitch on the elbow in the first inning and did not return after a rain delay in the second inning. Garcia has not yet been placed on the injured list, so he should be considered day-to-day.
