Phillies' Aramis Garcia: Dispatched to minors camp
The Phillies reassigned Garcia to minor-league camp Monday.
Philadelphia sent out Garcia and John Hicks in its latest round of roster cuts, leaving Garrett Stubbs (knee) and Rafael Marchan (wrist) as the lone catchers battling for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind JT Realmuto. Stubbs should have the edge on those duties if the knee injury he's been nursing since the World Baseball Classic doesn't prevent him being available for Opening Day, but if neither Stubbs nor Marchan can overcome their lingering health concerns, Garcia could end up being a late addition to the 26-man active roster....

Phillies' Aramis Garcia: Inks NRI deal with Philly
Garcia signed a minor-league contract Thursday with the Phillies that includes an invitation to major-league spring training.
Garcia figures to open the 2023 season at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, as J.T. Realmuto and Garrett Stubbs are currently locked in as the big-league catchers for Philadelphia. Garcia, 30, holds a .216/.253/.332 career batting line at the MLB level.... See More ... See Less
Aramis Garcia: Picks free agency
Garcia elected to become a free agent Friday instead of reporting to Triple-A Norfolk, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
After being claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Oct. 14, Garcia will test his value on the open market instead of reporting to Norfolk.

Orioles' Aramis Garcia: Falls off 40-man roster
Garcia was outrighted off Baltimore's 40-man roster and assigned to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.
Garcia was claimed off waivers by Baltimore after the end of the regular season but won't remain on the 40-man roster through the offseason. He appeared in 47 games with the Reds and had a .213/.248/.259 slash line in 115 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Aramis Garcia: Claimed by Orioles
Garcia was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Friday.
Garcia missed much of last year with finger and elbow injuries. When available, he struggled to a .213/.248/.259 slash line across a career-high 47 games for the Reds. Assuming he lasts the winter on Baltimore's 40-man roster, he'll compete to be Adley Rutschman's backup next spring.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Aramis Garcia: Activated Tuesday
Garcia (finger) was activated from the 60-day injured list Tuesday.
He ended up missing almost three months a fractured left middle finger but made it back just in time for the final two games of the year. Garcia, 29, was worth 0.0 fWAR in 46 MLB games and has no minor-league options remaining heading into 2023.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Aramis Garcia: Starts up rehab assignment
Garcia (finger) began a rehab assignment Friday with Triple-A Louisville and has gone 2-for-6 with a home run and a walk across his first two games with the affiliate.
Even though Garcia has been out of commission since shortly before the All-Star break due to a fractured finger, the Reds aren't closing the door on him playing again this season, even though Cincinnati enters Monday's series opener in Pittsburgh sitting at 33 games under .500. Since Garcia has thus far caught only seven innings during his rehab assignment, the Reds may want him to play at least one more game behind the plate before activating him from the 60-day injured list. Once reinstated, Garcia could unseat Austin Romine and Chuckie Robinson as the Reds' No. 1 catcher.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Aramis Garcia: Shifts to 60-day IL
The Reds transferred Garcia (finger) to the 60-day injured list Thursday.
Garcia hasn't seen action for the Reds since July 7, and the move to the 60-day IL ensures he won't be available until at least the second week of September. Though his placement on the IL was initially due to both elbow and finger injuries, it's his rehab from the fractured left middle digit that remains his main focus at this juncture. Garcia has yet to resume full baseball activities and may not be a safe bet to make it back from the IL when first eligible unless he makes meaningful progress in the next week.... See More ...

Reds' Aramis Garcia: Dealing with fracture in finger
Garcia is dealing with a fracture in his finger and doesn't have a timetable to return, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Garcia has been dealing with finger and elbow injuries over the last month, and it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to game action now that he's been diagnosed with a fracture in his finger. Michael Papierski and Mark Kolozsvary should continue to serve as the Reds' top options behind the plate while Garcia remains sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Aramis Garcia: Transferred back to 10-day IL
Garcia (finger/elbow) was transferred from the COVID-19-related injured list to the 10-day injured list Tuesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Garcia was placed on the COVID-19 IL on July 12, but he will now return to the 10-day IL as he nurses an elbow injury and a finger issue that landed him on the IL on July 7. The catcher will likely start a rehab assignment in the coming days and could return to the Reds in the near future.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Aramis Garcia: Shifts to COVID IL
The Reds transferred Garcia (finger/elbow) from the 10-day injured list to the COVID-19-related injured list Tuesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Garcia was one of the two Reds to go on the COVID-19 IL on Tuesday, with outfielder Albert Almora also joining him. It's unclear whether Garcia tested positive for the virus or was deemed a close contact of an infected person. The finger and elbow injuries that landed him on the IL last week will be the greater concerns as the 29-year-old works his way back to full health.... See More ... See Less

Reds' Aramis Garcia: Lands on injured list
Garcia was placed on the 10-day injured list after Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Pirates with finger and elbow injuries, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Garcia started Game 1 of the twin bill and struck out in both his plate appearances before being replaced by a pinch hitter. He's dealt with the elbow injury the past few days and has also recently been playing through an issue with the middle finger of his left hand. Mark Kolozsvary was promoted from Triple-A Louisville for catching depth, but Tyler Stephenson (thumb) is also expected to return from the injured list in the near future.... See More ... See Less

Reds' Aramis Garcia: Sits after hurting elbow
Garcia (elbow) is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Garcia made his return to action for Monday's 7-4 loss in the series opener after a four-game absence due to a bruised left middle finger, only to exit early after a Mets player accidentally hit him on the left elbow with a bat. Though X-rays on Garcia's elbow returned negative, manager David Bell said Tuesday that the 29-year-old is still being evaluated as the Reds look to pinpoint a diagnosis for his injury. Michael Papierski will be back behind the plate Tuesday while Garcia goes to the bench.... See More ... See Less

Reds' Aramis Garcia: Remains in game after all
Garcia appeared to leave Monday's game against the Giants after aggravating an existing finger injury, but he remained in the game after retrieving additional padding from the dugout, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Reds' Aramis Garcia: Leaves game early
Garcia was removed from Monday's game against the Mets due to injury, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Garcia has been battling a bruised left middle finger over the last few days, and while the team has yet to reveal any details following Monday's departure, he appeared to further irritate the same injury, per Goldsmith. With Tyler Stephenson (thumb) already on the 10-day injured list, Michael Papierski and Mark Kolozsvary will be tasked with catching duties until Garcia is cleared to return to action....

Reds' Aramis Garcia: Garners start Monday

Reds' Aramis Garcia: Nursing finger injury
Garcia has been absent from the lineup for the Reds' last four games on account of a bruised left middle finger, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Since the injury is to Garcia's glove hand, he's apparently still experiencing some pain when pitches hit the mitt, so the Reds have leaned on Michael Papierski behind the plate the past few days. Manager David Bell said that Garcia could have caught Sunday's series finale against Atlanta if needed, but the Reds decided the 29-year-old was best off getting another day off to heal. When he checks back into the lineup, Garcia should displace Papierski as the Reds' No. 1 backstop, though both will lose work once Tyler Stephenson (thumb) is activated from the injured list....
