Adolis García News
Texas Rangers outfielder Adolis Garcia put together a strong performance in the victory over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. The 29-year-old outfielder has started off slow this season, hitting .205/.261/.418 with six homers, 23 RBI. On Sunday, Garcia blasted two home runs and collected five RBI in the 7-1 victory. This marks his fourth multi-homer game of his career. Despite this performance, Garcia is tough to trust in most fantasy formats right now.
Texas Rangers outfielder Adolis Garcia was unable to record a hit during Saturday's 3-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves. He went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and is now three for his last 19 at-bats. Garcia's slash line is sitting at .195/.273/.403 with four home runs, three stolen bases, 13 runs, and 14 RBI across 21 games. He won't hit .195 the whole season, but he hit just .243 last year and struck out 31.2% of the time. For fantasy managers that can swallow a middling batting average, the 29-year-old can offer excellent power and speed after a 2021 season in which he went 31/16.
Texas Rangers outfielder Adolis Garcia may only be batting .176 through 21 plate appearances to start the season, but the numbers are more promising than they seem. With one homer and one steal to his name, Garcia is delivering on the promise of his 31-homer, 16-steal 2021 season, meaning fantasy investors are likely pleased with early returns. The real gains, albeit in a small sample size, have been in his plate discipline. Garcia has already walked four times in the season's first week after earning only 32 free passes in 149 2021 games. With more trips on the bases come more steals and more runs. Fantasy managers have to be excited if this new-found patience keeps up.
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.
