Fantasy Impact:

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the deal is close but not officially complete. If the agreement is completed, the Astros would have added three relievers over the last 24 hours. Garcia is 15-for-17 in save chances, along with a 3.47 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 35 strikeouts over 36 1/3 innings in 2021. His fantasy value would take a hit as he would be used in a high-leverage role with his new team, making him mainly an option in leagues that reward solds (saves and holds).
