The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed Yimi Garcia on the 10-day DL with right forearm inflammation. Garcia has struggled in 2018, pitching to a 5.21 ERA over 20 games. Switch-pitcher Pat Venditte was recalled to take his place. Venditte is one of the more interesting stories in the game, however, he holds no fantasy value.
Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Yimi Garcia has been recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday. Edward Paredes has been sent down in order to make room for Garcia on the active roster. Garcia has allowed four runs in 4 2/3 innings this season with the Dodgers. He'll likely work in low-leverage situations, so fantasy owners should not bother picking him up.
Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Yimi Garcia has been called up to fortify a beleaguered bullpen after a season away from action due to Tommy John surgery. Garcia last appeared in a game in 2016 and has seven strikeouts in 7 1/3 rehab innings. He gave up three earned runs during that time, however, so he's unlikely to see any high-leverage innings at first. The Dodgers bullpen has been a disaster in 2018, so any help is welcome. Keep an eye on him since the role of bridge to closer Kenley Jansen has no front-runner.
