Avisaíl García News
Miami Marlins outfielder Avisail Garcia (hamstring) was removed from Tuesday's game prematurely after he tweaked his hamstring. According to Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald, the injury is being classified as a left hamstring strain. It's been a tough go for Garcia this season, as he owns a .185/.241/.315 slash line with three home runs, eight runs, 12 RBI, and two steals. The 32-year-old already dealt with a back injury earlier in the year, which has limited him to 37 games. Fantasy managers can consider Garcia day-to-day, but this news has little impact in any format.
The Miami Marlins reinstated outfielder Avisail Garcia (back) from the 10-day injured list on Sunday and optioned outfielder Dane Myers to Triple-A Jacksonville in a corresponding move. Garcia is immediately back in the starting lineup on Sunday against the Detroit Tigers and left-hander Tarik Skubal, playing right field and batting fifth in the lineup. The 32-year-old has been out since late April, so fantasy managers should expect some rust, especially since he was hitting just .188/.243/.333 in 22 games before going on the injured list. Garcia won't necessarily be a lineup regular in Miami, either, so he's not a must-add off the waiver wire in deep mixed leagues.
Miami Marlins outfielder Avisail Garcia (back) is expected to rejoin the team on Sunday, per beat writer Jordan McPherson. Garcia has been out since late April with a back issue so his return is a long time coming. He was slashing just .188/.243/.333 with three home runs over 22 games before his injury so there's not a whole lot of fantasy appeal here.
Avisail Garcia was rewarded with a four-year, $53 million contract with the Miami Marlins after posting the best year of his career with the Milwaukee Brewers in 2021. Overall, he slashed .262/.330/.490 with 29 homers, eight steals, 86 RBI, and 68 runs scored over 135 games. The 30-year-old posted a career-high 12.2 barrel %, .515 xSLG (87th percentile), .367 xwOBA (85th percentile), and 26.1 HR/FB%. He is projected to hit third in the batting order and provide Miami's lineup an offensive boost. The one downside with the move from Milwaukee to Miami is that Garcia will now play half his games in spacious Loan Depot Park instead of the hitter-friendly confines of American Family Field. ATC projects Garcia to slash .231/.277/.435 with 23 home runs, 75 RBI, 70 runs scored, and eight stolen bases over 561 plate appearances in 2022. According to Rotoballer's Expected Draft Value, Garcia's ATC projections make him below fair value at his current ADP of 188. The Marlins outfielder will provide solid counting stats and is a good bet to hit 20+ homers and swipe 6-8 bags in 2022.
