Avisail Garcia swipes first bag of the season on Saturday against Braves

Avisail Garcia went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a stolen base on Saturday against the Braves.

Fantasy Impact:

Garcia isn't particularly fast, ranking in the 66th percentile in sprint speed, but he did swipe eight bags last season. Of bigger concern is the fact that he is slashing just .186/.205/.279 on the year with one home run and three RBI. Garcia has hit at least 18 home runs in each of his last four full seasons, so the power should come eventually. But his upside isn't high enough that you should feel compelled to hold him if he doesn't turn things around within a few weeks.
