LF,RF - MIA - IL10
Marlins outfielder Avisail Garcia has suffered a minor setback as he works his way back from a back injury.
Garcia was on a minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A but will now head back to Miami for further evaluation. The veteran has struggled mightily this season, hitting just .188 with three homers and a .576 OPS across 22 appearances. He last played on April 28 before hitting the shelf.
Avisail Garcia went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in a loss to Cleveland Sunday.
Garcia launched a three-run homer off James Karinchak to center field in the eighth inning. The 31-year-old veteran is slashing .164/.207/.291 with two home runs, five RBI, and one stolen base this season. Fantasy managers can leave the struggling slugger on their bench or on waivers for now.
Avisail Garcia went 1-for-4 at the plate for the Marlins Sunday, crushing a three-run home run in a 7-4 loss to the Guardians.
Garcia has been solid at the plate recently for the Marlins, picking up hits in three of his last four games as well as driving in runs in two of his last four contests for the club. The veteran slugger will look to continue to break out of a disappointing start to the season at the plate for fantasy managers, batting just .164 with five runs scored, two home runs, and five runs batted in so far this season.
