Bryan Garcia: Cut loose by Houston
The Astros released Garcia on June 26.
Garcia made four starts in the big leagues for Detroit in 2022, but after landing in Houston in February on a minor-league deal, he never pitched well enough at Triple-A Sugar Land to earn a look with the Astros. Over his 49 innings in the Pacific Coast League, Garcia pitched to a 6.98 ERA, 2.14 WHIP and 39:45 K:BB.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Bryan Garcia: Reassigned to minors camp
Garcia was reassigned to minor-league camp by the Astros on Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Garcia has allowed just two runs over 12.1 innings this spring but still finds himself on the outside looking in for a roster spot. It's not clear whether the 27-year-old will be used as a starter or reliever -- or both -- at Triple-A Sugar Land.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Bryan Garcia: Inks minors deal with Houston
Garcia agreed to a minor-league contract with the Astros on Tuesday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Garcia posted a 3.54 ERA in four starts with the Tigers last season, though he did also issue 10 walks over his 20.1 total big-league frames. He surrendered 25 free passes in 39.1 innings of relief with Detroit in 2021, spoiling a promising showing from the COVID-shortened 2020 campaign. The 27-year-old right-hander will likely be viewed as organizational bullpen depth leading into Astros camp.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Sent to Triple-A
Garcia cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday.
Garcia joined Detroit for a start during the final week of the season, and he picked up the win against Seattle after he allowed three earned runs over 6.2 frames. He pitched well in limited action at the big-league level last year and had a 3.54 ERA and 1.18 WHIP across 20.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Beats Seattle for second win
Garcia (2-0) earned the win over the Mariners on Monday, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six batters over 6.2 innings.
Garcia was called up earlier in the day to make his first major-league start since Aug. 15. He allowed a run in the first frame but bounced back by keeping Seattle off the scoreboard over the next three innings. The right-hander yielded another run in the fifth and departed with two outs in the seventh, after which one more run was posted to his final line. Garcia finished with a season-best six punchouts and his second quality start of the campaign. This was his first season working as a starter in the majors, and he finished with a respectable 3.54 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 17:10 K:BB over 20.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Call-up official
The Tigers recalled Garcia from Triple-A Toledo ahead of his scheduled start Monday in Seattle.
Lefty Joey Wentz was demoted to the minors Sunday to clear a spot on the active roster for Garcia, who is set to make his fourth start of the season for Detroit. Over his previous three outings in the big leagues spanning 13.2 innings, Garcia was charged with five earned runs on nine hits and eight walks while striking out 11.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Set to start Monday
Garcia will be called up from Triple-A Toledo to start Monday against the Mariners, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Garcia was last in the majors in mid-August and delivered a quality start against Cleveland, and he'll rejoin the big-league rotation once more during the final week of the season. The 27-year-old has a 3.29 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 11:8 K:BB in 13.2 frames across his three starts for Detroit this year.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Back in minors
The Tigers returned Garcia to Triple-A Toledo on Aug. 16.
Though he didn't move into the rotation at Triple-A until July 10 after working as a reliever the past few seasons, Garcia has fared better than anticipated across his three spot starts with Detroit. Garcia was especially impressive in his last outing for the Tigers on Aug. 15, when he struck out five and allowed three earned runs over six innings to pick up the win over the Guardians in the second game of a doubleheader. Since he was designated as the 27th man for the twin bill, Garcia was sent back to Triple-A immediately after the outing, and he may have to wait for another injury to hit the Detroit rotation before he gets another look in the big leagues. The Tigers will be able to get by with a four-man rotation until next week, when Michael Pineda (triceps) is on track to come off the injured list. Along with Garcia, Garrett Hill and Daniel Norris -- who were both recently moved to the bullpen -- are candidates to pick up spot starts as needed over the final month of the campaign....

Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Nabs win in nightcap
Garcia (1-0) struck out five and allowed three earned runs on five hits and no walks to come away with the victory Monday in the Tigers' 7-5 win over the Guardians in the second game of a doubleheader.
Called up from Triple-A Toledo in advance of the twin bill to make his third start of the season, Garcia delivered his best outing to date. After issuing six free passes over four scoreless innings his last time out against the Rays on Aug. 5, Garcia was far more efficient Monday while throwing 61 of his 88 pitches for strikes. The only blemishes on his line came in the fourth inning, when Andres Gimenez and Luke Maile took him deep for a two-run and a solo home run, respectively. Garcia is likely to be optioned back to Toledo on Tuesday, but he should be one of the Tigers' top options for a call-up the next time the team needs a spot starter.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Starting Monday's nightcap
Garcia will be called up from Triple-A to start the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Guardians, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Garcia was sent down by the Tigers in early August but will serve as a spot starter during Monday's nightcap. Over two major-league starts this year, he's posted a 2.35 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 7.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Optioned to Triple-A
Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following his start Friday against the Rays, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
He gave up zero earned runs on one hit and six walks while striking out three in four innings during a spot start. Garcia could come back up the next time the Tigers need a fill-in starter.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Contract selected Friday
Garcia had his contract selected by the Tigers, and he will start Friday's game against the Rays.
The right-hander was previously announced as Detroit's starter for the contest, and he's now officially been added to the big-league roster. Garcia made his season debut in a spot start for the Tigers last week and was demoted after giving up two runs on three hits with three strikeouts and two walks across 3.2 innings July 29....

Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Returning Friday for another start
Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Garcia will be called up from Triple-A Toledo to start Friday's game against the Rays, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Garcia will be joining the Tigers for his second Friday start in a row, as he previously took the hill last weekend in Toronto and took a no-decision while giving up two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out three in 3.2 innings. Since Garcia was added to the roster last week as a COVID-19 replacement for Andrew Chafin, the Tigers will need to formally add the right-hander back to the 40-man roster so he can make his spot start versus Tampa Bay. Garcia could be headed back to the minors immediately following his upcoming start, as the Tigers should get Beau Brieske (forearm) back from the injured list when a fifth member of the rotation is needed next week....

Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Sent down after spot start
Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Toledo after his start Friday against the Blue Jays, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
He gave up two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out three in 3.2 innings during the spot start. This was his 73rd appearance in the majors but just his first appearance as a starter. Garcia has generally been working between one and four innings in his minor-league outings, and his most likely role should he return to the majors is still probably as a reliever.... See More ...

Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Getting first MLB start
Garcia is listed as the Tigers' starting pitcher for Friday's game in Toronto.
Making the 73rd MLB appearance of his career, Garcia will be getting his first look as a starter after recently moving into the rotation at Triple-A Toledo prior to his call-up Wednesday. While starting his last three outings for Toledo, Garcia didn't cover more than four innings any time out and turned in an unremarkable 6:6 K:BB, so he doesn't shape up as an appealing streaming option while he takes on a strong Toronto offense on the road....

Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Called up, could start Friday
The Tigers selected Garcia's contract from Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
According to Beck, Garcia is expected to temporarily move into the rotation for Friday's game in Toronto, which would mark the 27-year-old's first start in his first 73 appearances in the big leagues. Perhaps as a reaction to the numerous personnel losses the Tigers have suffered to their rotation this season, Garcia recently transitioned into a starting role for Toledo. He maxed out at four innings over his three starts for the Triple-A affiliate, so the Tigers likely won't bank on him working deep into the game if he does in fact receive the starting nod Friday versus the Blue Jays....

Garcia cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday.

Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Heads to minors
The Tigers optioned Garcia to Triple-A Toledo on Monday.
Garcia was one of four relievers cut from big-league camp Monday as the Tigers look to pare down their bullpen ahead of Opening Day. The demotion to the minors doesn't come as a major surprise after Garcia turned in a 7.55 ERA and 1.86 WHIP across 39.1 innings with the big club in 2021.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Scoops up third win
Garcia (3-2) pitched 1.1 scoreless innings of relief to earn the win Tuesday against the White Sox. He allowed one walk and struck out one.
Coming off of a productive 2020 campaign in which he posted a 1.66 ERA across 21.2 innings, Garcia has struggled with a 7.50 ERA across 35.2 innings this year. It's been even more of a struggle lately, as the righty had allowed five runs (four earned) in 2.2 innings this month before Tuesday's more encouraging effort. Garcia doesn't miss a ton of bats, so his margin for error is fairly small. He should stick in a middle relief role for the Tigers over the final few weeks of the season.... See More ... See Less
