Adolis García News
Texas Rangers outfielder Adolis Garcia has put together an interesting 2021 campaign and given the organization plenty to think about going forward. On Thursday, Garcia went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in the 7-6 win over the Los Angeles Angels. That blast marked Garcia's 31st home run of the season. His stats have decreased during the second half, but his power is still there. Garcia figures to be a starting outfielder heading into next season.
Texas Rangers outfielder Adolis Garcia has struggled during the second half of the season. His bat was on fire to start the year, but things have settled down for Garcia. However, he put together a nice performance against the Baltimore Orioles on Friday. He went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI in the 8-5 win. The 28-year-old is now hitting .244/.289/.461 with 30 homers, 85 RBI. The power is clearly there, but Garcia needs to improve in other areas if he wants to be a long term option in Texas.
Texas Rangers outfielder Adolis Garcia has not been the same hitter during the second half of the season. On Friday, he went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts in the 8-0 loss to the Chicago White Sox. The 28-year-old has not looked the same over the last few months at the plate. He is slashing .245/.291/.470 with 30 homers, 81 RBI and 10 steals this season. He will remain in the middle of the order down the stretch, but we'll see what the Rangers plan to do with him this offseason.
Garcia's rookie year was one of the few bright spots for the Rangers in 2021. He smashed 31 homers and drove in 90 runs while adding 16 steals over 622 plate appearances. That was good enough to nearly win him a Rookie of the Year Award but as we take a closer look things don't look so good. His 31% strikeout rate and 5% walk rate were both very bad, and he did most of his damage in the season's first two months (hitting 16 homers and stealing six bases in April and May). After June 1st, he hit just 15 more homers while batting .224 with a quite bad .397 slugging percentage (that's a 29 PA/HR, which is right at the league average). He was also one of the older rookies you'll find at the age of 28. That gives us a guy that seems to have hugely benefited from a hot two-month span, and there really are not too many reasons for optimism that he can repeat his final line from a year ago. Even with an ADP of 157, Adolis appears much too expensive.
