Giants' Rico Garcia: Makes 60-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia made the Giants' 60-man roster.

He is not on the 40-man roster but was competing for a spot in the bullpen this spring prior to the shutdown. Garcia will likely pitch primarily in low-leverage situations this season.

Giants' Rico Garcia: Viewed as relief candidate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Gabe Kapler said Garcia is seen as a relief candidate, Mark W. Sanchez of 104.5 KNBR reports.

Garcia, who was claimed off waivers earlier in the offseason, has spent most of his career as a starter, but it sounds like his best chance at making it to the majors in 2020 hinges on a move to the bullpen. The righty posted an 8.44 ERA in 5.1 innings before spring training was suspended, though his 0.94 WHIP and 6:1 K:BB suggest he deserved better results.

Giants' Rico Garcia: Claimed by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was claimed off waivers by the Giants on Monday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Garcia made his debut in 2019, giving up seven runs in six innings at the big-league level while posting a 2:5 K:BB. The 25-year-old was also poor in 13 starts for Triple-A Albuquerque, recording a 6.90 ERA, though he posted an excellent 1.85 ERA in 13 starts for Double-A Hartford.

Rockies' Rico Garcia: Called up by Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was recalled by the Rockies on Saturday.

Garcia made his first career big-league start in late August, giving up six runs in five innings while striking out two and walking five. It's not yet clear what his role is expected to be down the stretch.

Rockies' Rico Garcia: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday.

He gave up six runs in five innings Tuesday in a spot start against the Red Sox that represented his big-league debut. Garcia is one of the Rockies' better pitching prospects, but he's probably not good enough to have success in Coors Field with any consistency. Sam Howard was recalled in a corresponding move. It's possible Garcia could get a few more spot starts when rosters expand in September.

Rockies' Rico Garcia: Falters in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (0-1) took the loss against Boston on Tuesday, pitching five innings and giving up six runs on seven hits and five walks while striking out two.

Garcia was called up Tuesday to make the first major-league appearance of his career, but it certainly did not play out as he hoped. The 25-year-old struck out Mookie Betts to begin the game but walked the next batter and proceeded to give up a two-out, run-scoring single to J.D. Martinez. Things didn't get any easier the rest of the night, as Garcia served up a trio of homers while issuing four more walks before departing after five innings facing a six-run deficit. Despite the difficult debut, Garcia is likely to stick in the rotation with the Rockies' staff ravaged by injuries. He's next scheduled to take on Pittsburgh in Colorado on Sunday.

Rockies' Rico Garcia: Promoted to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garica had his contract selected from Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday.

Garcia will toe the rubber Tuesday against Boston after being promoted to the majors. It will be his big-league debut. Chad Bettis (hip) was moved to the 60-day injured list to create room on the 40-man roster.

Rockies' Rico Garcia: Likely starter Tuesday with callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockies will select Garcia's contract from Triple-A Albuquerque ahead of Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, William Boor of MLB.com reports. He's expected to draw the start in his major-league debut.

One of the more well-regarded arms in the Colorado system, Garcia's long-term fantasy outlook is hindered by calling Coors Field his home park. The 25-year-old won't be eased into the majors with a soft outing, as he'll draw a home start against a Red Sox offense that ranks fifth in the big leagues in terms of wRC+ (111). The right-hander, who posted a 4.23 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 132:47 K:BB across 123.1 innings between Albuquerque and Double-A Hartford, will assume the rotation spot of German Marquez (arm), who was placed on the 10-day injured list a day earlier.

Rockies' Rico Garcia: Candidate to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia could be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to start Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Garcia was scratched from his scheduled start for the Isotopes on Monday, making it appear as though he'll be promoted to the big-league club in time for Tuesday's clash. He'd take the place of German Marquez, who was sent to the 10-day injured list Monday due to arm inflammation.

Rockies' Rico Garcia: Promoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia has been promoted to Triple-A Albuquerque, William Boor of MLB.com reports.

Garcia was dominating for Double-A Hartford, so the Rockies will bump him up a level and see what he can do in the Pacific Coast League. The 25-year-old went 8-2 with a sparkling 1.85 ERA and an 87:23 K:BB in 13 starts for the YardGoats.

Rockies' Rico Garcia: Caps off dominant week with win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (8-1) picked up a win for Double-A Hartford on Sunday, giving up three hits and one earned run over six innings, striking out four and walking three in a 3-1 victory for the Yard Goats.

It was a lights-out week for the right-hander, who nearly spearheaded a combined no-hitter in his last start before following that up with another excellent outing Sunday. Through 67 innings, he's now in the top five in the Eastern League in all three pitching triple crown categories with eight wins, a 1.88 ERA and 85 strikeouts.

Rockies' Rico Garcia: Dominates in Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia fired six hitless innings for Double-A Hartford on Tuesday, striking out 11 and walking none in a 3-0 victory.

The right-hander was utterly dominant as the Yard Goats nearly tossed a combined no-hitter, only to have it controversially broken up by a bunt single in the ninth inning. That doesn't take away from the fabulous effort by Garcia, who is lighting it up in Double-A to the tune of a 7-1 record, 1.92 ERA and 81:18 K:BB over 61 innings. He's established himself as a prospect to watch in the Rockies system and could find himself in line for a promotion to Triple-A Albuquerque sooner rather than later should he continue to dominate like this.
