Adolis García News
The Texas Rangers activated outfielder Adolis Garcia (knee) from the 10-day injured list on Monday and optioned catcher Sam Huff and infielder Jonathan Ornelas to Triple-A Round Rock in corresponding moves. The Rangers are getting both Garcia and rookie third baseman Josh Jung (thumb) back on Monday for the stretch run. Garcia is playing in right field and will hit sixth against Boston Red Sox right-hander Kutter Crawford on Monday. Garcia, 30, was an All-Star for the first time in his career this year, and he'll return to a .244/.322/.494 slash line with an .817 OPS, a career-high 34 home runs, 26 doubles, 100 RBI, eight stolen bases and 97 runs scored in 135 games (580 plate appearances). Fantasy managers will want to get Garcia back into their starting lineups.
Texas Rangers manager Bruce Bochy said that outfielder Adolis Garcia (knee) is a possibility to come off the injured list and rejoin the team next weekend in a series against the division-rival Seattle Mariners. Garcia has begun a running program and could be back in the starting lineup as early as next Friday to face the M's. The 30-year-old All-Star has been on the injured list since last Thursday due to a right patellar-tendon strain that he suffered while trying to make a catch in the outfield. Garcia has been a must-start in all fantasy lineups in 2023 by hitting .244/.322/.494 with an .817 OPS, 34 home runs, 26 doubles, 100 RBI, eight stolen bases and 97 runs scored in 580 trips to the plate over 135 games in his fourth year in Texas.
The Texas Rangers placed right fielder Adolis Garcia (knee) on the 10-day injured list on Thursday due to a right knee patellar tendon strain. The 30-year-old crashed into the right-field fence in Wednesday's game trying to make a catch, and falls to the IL at a critical juncture of Texas' season while they try to hang on in the AL Wild Card race. The Rangers hope for Garcia to return in September, but it may ultimately end up being too late for fantasy managers hoping to have the slugger's bat for the fantasy playoffs. Garcia doesn't have a timetable for a return. The two-time All-Star takes a .244/.322/.494 slash line with 34 home runs, an AL-high 100 RBI, and eight stolen bases to the sidelines. Texas is elevating top prospect Evan Carter in search of a spark to quell their recent swoon.
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.
