Yimi Garcia threw bullpen session Saturday

Yimi Garcia has not thrown since Monday because of soreness in his left knee, but did throw a bullpen session Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Garcia does not have much fantasy value, but he is worth noting if he can get a spot start here or there. For now, leave him on the waiver wire.

Yimi Garcia to start for the Dodgers tonight

Yimi Garcia gets the call to start tonight for the Dodgers. Garcia is getting the start for the injured Carlos Frias.

Fantasy Impact

It's going to be a bullpen game tonight. Stack against the Dodgers tonight for DFS? May see a lot of Juan Nicasio so might be a good idea.

Yimi Garcia continues to impress

Yimi Garcia pitched the eighth inning in Saturday night's game against the Diamondbacks. He struck out one and walked one.

Fantasy Impact

Garcia now sports a 0.71 ERA on the young season and notched his third hold. It is interesting to note that Mattingly continues to use him against the opposing team's best hitters. He may garner some saves until Jansen comes back but it will be purely dependent upon the matchups. Garcia will still have value when Jansen returns for holds, ERA, WHIP, and strikeouts.

Yimi Garcia pitches the eighth inning

Yimi Garcia pitched the eighth inning to face the heart of the Giants order: Pagan, Posey, and Maxwell. He struck out two while allowing a hit to Posey. 12-of-20 pitches were thrown for strikes.

Fantasy Impact

The Dodgers are truly a matchup, closer-by-committee until Kenley Jansen comes back. Garcia has electric stuff and will probably be called upon to face the best hitters on the opposition. He could run into saves from time-to-time, but should be an excellent option for leagues that count holds.

Yimi Garcia impressive in notching the save

Yimi Garcia was asked to close out the Padres in Friday night's game. He was very impressive pitching a perfect inning with two strikeouts. Garcia now sports a 0.93 ERA on the season with 16 strikeouts in 9 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact

Hatcher, Peralta, and Baez were all given opportunites to close for the Dodgers. Friday night was Garcia's chance and, boy, did he look impressive. He doesn't throw over-the-top, instead opting for a more side-arm delivery. He throws mid-90s with his fastball and was able to paint the corners. When he did miss location, the movement on his fastball is so wicked that batters were feably hacking at it. Garcia also possesses a wipe-out slider which he threw once. Kenley Jansen is supposed to return mid-May but Garcia has a chance to garner the bulk of the save chances until then. Could he be this year's Delin Betances?
