Adolis García News
The Texas Rangers announced on Tuesday that outfielder Adolis Garcia (oblique) was removed from the World Series roster after suffering a moderate left-oblique strain in Game 3 on Monday night. It's a huge loss for the Rangers offensively, although it helps that the Rangers now have a 3-1 series lead after winning again in Arizona 11-7 on Halloween night. The Cuban slugger was having an excellent first postseason, batting a cool .323 (20-for-62) with eight home runs, a double, 22 RBI, two stolen bases and 11 runs scored in 15 games. Garcia homered in five straight games at one point, was named the ALCS MVP and drove in a record 15 runs in the ALCS. Infielder Ezequiel Duran replaced Garcia on the roster, but Travis Jankowski got the start in right field in Game 4 and went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored out of the nine-hole.
Texas Rangers outfielder Adolis Garcia (oblique) isn't starting in Game 4 of the World Series on Tuesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks, but he'll be available off the bench after working out. Travis Jankowski will make the start in right field and will bat ninth against Diamondbacks left-handed opener Joe Mantiply. According to RangersToday.com's Jeff Wilson, Garcia suffered a moderate left-oblique strain in his final at-bat in Game 3 on Monday night. There's a chance the 30-year-old slugger could miss the remainder of the World Series, which would be a huge blow to the Rangers' offense the rest of the way, as Garcia has eight home runs and 22 RBI this postseason and was named the ALCS MVP. Jankowski hit .263 (65-for-247) during the year with only one home run but with 19 steals. He has a hit in two at-bats in five playoff games and has not faced Mantiply in his career.
Texas Rangers outfielder Adolis Garcia (side) will undergo an MRI exam after leaving the 3-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in Game 3 of the World Series on Monday night. Garcia went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout before dealing with left-side tightness on a flyout in the eighth inning. We should have a better idea of whether the 30-year-old right-handed slugger will be able to play again in the World Series after the results of his MRI exam are known. The Rangers would lose their hottest hitter in the postseason if Garcia is forced to miss any time. He was the ALCS MVP and has eight total home runs and 22 RBI in this year's playoffs. If Garcia is unable to play in Game 4 on Tuesday, either Robbie Grossman or Travis Jankowski will enter the starting lineup.
Adolis Garcia delivered again in 2022, slashing .250/.300/.456 with 27 HR and 25 SB over 657 PAs. Despite that, you'll find him on many fade lists this season because his plate approach is terrible. His 40.3% chase rate indicates too much flailing outside the strike zone, while his 76.9 Z-Contact% suggests a propensity for swing-and-miss even if he gets a strike. The resulting strikeout numbers are ugly and create real batting average risk for fantasy managers, but there's a lot to like here too. Garcia's 96.4 mph average airborne exit velocity and 12.9% rate of Brls/BBE are both well above-average, so you can count on him to approach 30 HR. He also possesses plus wheels and was only caught stealing six times last year, making him a threat for a 30/30 season. As a cleanup hitter, Garcia gets plenty of counting stats as well. Garcia was substantially better in the second half (.266/.323/.479) than the first (.237/.282/.439), so it's not like pitchers figured him out as the season wore on. Garcia is a streaky player and you should prepare for a potential average hit, but 30/30 upside is too good to pass up at an ADP of 65.14.
