Fantasy Impact: Garcia was removed from Sunday's win over the Guardians with right elbow soreness and it appears another high-leverage Blue Jays reliever will land on the IL. Garcia has been the acting closer for the club with Jordan Romano also on the injured list as he sports a 2.57 ERA across 27 outings, locking down five saves in the process. Chad Green is likely in line for the lion's share of save opportunities for the time being.
