Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Begins hitting, running
Garcia (hamstring) has begun hitting and running progressions, MLB.com reports.
Garcia's most recent trip to the injured list came back in late August due to a left hamstring strain. While he's begun to ramp things back up, it's not clear whether there's enough time left in the season for his return. Even if he does make it back this month, Garcia seems unlikely to have much of a role with the Marlins as the team fights for a playoff berth.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Lands on 10-day IL
The Marlins placed Garcia (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Garcia's move to the IL comes as little surprise after he was diagnosed with a strained left hamstring upon exiting in the third inning of Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Padres. The 31-year-old has been playing sparingly over the past couple of weeks and already missed time in April due to an injury to the same hamstring, so fantasy managers in the majority of leagues can feel free to cut bait with Garcia now that he's back on the IL again....

Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Diagnosed with hamstring strain
Garcia suffered a left hamstring strain in Tuesday's game against the Padres, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports.
Garcia exited the game after suffering the injury while running to first base. There hasn't been an official roster move, though the diagnosis suggests that there's a strong possibility of Garcia being placed on the injured list. Bryan De La Cruz should get more consistent playing time if Garcia is forced to miss additional time.... See More ... See Less

Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Nabs steal in loss
Garcia went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base in a 3-1 loss to the Dodgers in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader.
Garcia wasn't in the lineup for the matinee, but he played the full nightcap in left field with Bryan De La Cruz sitting versus southpaw Julio Urias. The steal was Garcia's second of the year. The veteran outfielder has been mostly limited to a short-side platoon role since returning from a back injury in late July. He's slashing just .190/.248/.324 with three home runs, 11 RBI, eight runs scored and three doubles over 113 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less

Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Returns from injured list
Garcia (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and is starting in right field and batting fifth Sunday against the Tigers, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The veteran outfielder has been sidelined since late April due to the back issue but will rejoin Miami's lineup Sunday. Garcia had a .188/.243/.333 slash line in 22 games prior to the injury, though he hit well during his rehab assignment, going 8-for-29 with three doubles, three homers and seven walks in nine games. Dane Myers was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville to free up a roster spot.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Expects to be activated Sunday
Garcia (back) said he anticipates being activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
After nearly three months on the injured list, Garcia is now finally nearing a return to the Marlins' roster. The 32-year-old outfielder looked good during his second rehab assignment, slashing .276/.432/.690 with three homers and eight RBI through 37 plate appearances in the minors. Given the production Miami has received from its outfielders this season, Garcia will likely be limited to a bench role once he returns.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Moves rehab assignment to Triple-A
Garcia (back) has gone 3-for-7 with a home run, a double and a walk in two games since shifting his rehab assignment to Triple-A Jacksonville on Tuesday.
Garcia started up the assignment with Double-A Pensacola on July 18 and looks to be nearing a return from the 10-day injured list. Though he had been a near-everyday player in the Miami outfield prior to landing on the IL on May 2 due to back tightness, Garcia could have to settle for more of a part-time role once activated with Bryan De La Cruz and Jesus Sanchez (neck) having since emerged as the Marlins' primary starters in left and right field, respectively....

Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Starts rehab assignment up again
Garcia (back) will restart a rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Pensacola, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Garcia is slated to serve as the Blue Wahoos' designated hitter and receive three plate appearances. The veteran outfielder has been sidelined since late April with back tightness and encountered a setback on his initial rehab assignment in early June. Given their needs, it's possible the Marlins might ask Garcia to play some center field upon his return, although Dane Myers has done a fine job filling in there since Jazz Chisholm (oblique) landed on the shelf....

Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Takes BP
Garcia (back) took batting practice Friday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
According to MLB.com, Garcia was able to participate in batting practice July 7, so he hasn't yet taken a meaningful step forward in terms of activity coming out of the All-Star break. The outfielder has been shelved since late April with back tightness, but he was able to appear in four rehab games from May 29 through June 2 before experiencing a setback and being shut down. While it's encouraging that Garcia is swinging the bat again, he hasn't been cleared to restart a rehab assignment yet, and he'll likely need several games in the minors to get his timing back at the plate before the Marlins are comfortable with activating him from the 10-day injured list....

Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Remains shut down
Garcia (back) has yet to resume baseball activities since experiencing a setback June 3, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Experiences setback
Garcia (back) suffered a minor setback Saturday, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports.
Garcia played in four rehab games since Monday and seemed to be nearing the end of his assignment, but the setback will postpone his return to the big leagues. Garcia will be evaluated by the Marlins on Saturday, at which point more information regarding his injury will be available. The 31-year-old outfielder has been on the IL since May 2 due to back tightness.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Beginning rehab assignment Monday
Garcia (back) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Jacksonville on Monday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Garcia will likely need a handful of games before being able to return to the Miami lineup. The outfielder has been on the injured list since the start of May with lingering tightness in his back, and he was struggling to a .188/.243/.333 slash over 76 plate appearances before he was placed on the shelf. It remains to be seen if he'll have an everyday lineup spot once he's back on the Miami roster.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Cleared for some activities
Garcia (back) is taking part in workouts, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Expect a few players to man right field for Miami with both Garcia and Jesus Sanchez (hamstring) sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Lands on 10-day IL
Garcia was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, retroactive to April 29, with back tightness, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Garcia is off to a brutal start this season with the Marlins, slashing just .188/.243/.333 through 76 plate appearances. He can use the time on the IL as both a physical and mental reset, though his production levels in 2022 were also quite poor. Xavier Edwards has been brought up in a corresponding move....

Marlins' Avisail Garcia: May have lost regular lineup spot
Garcia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The righty-hitting Garcia had already sat in two of the Marlins' previous three matchups against right-handed pitching, but it's perhaps even more discouraging that he'll hit the bench Sunday despite the fact that the Cubs are bringing a southpaw (Justin Steele) to the hill. Garrett Hampson will step in as the Marlins' right fielder in place of Garcia, who is beginning to lose work after slashing .188/.243/.333 with a career-worst 31.1 percent strikeout rate through his first 74 plate appearances of the season....

Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Homers in loss
Garcia went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Sunday's loss to Cleveland.
Garcia cut the Marlins' deficit to 6-4 with a three-run home run in the eighth inning, a 417-foot shot to center field off James Karinchak. The homer is Garcia's second of the year and just his third extra-base hit. The 31-year-old outfielder had struggled at the plate prior to the home run Sunday, going 3-for-20 over his last six games. He's slashing .164/.207/.291 with five RBI through 60 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Avisail Garcia: Sitting second game of twin bill
Garcia is out of the lineup Saturday for the second game of the Marlins' doubleheader with the Guardians.
Garcia will take a seat for the nightcap after going 1-for-4 with an RBI in the Marlins' 6-1 win in Game 1. Jesus Sanchez is starting in right field in his absence.... See More ... See Less
