Cardinals' Luis Garcia: Impresses in 2021

Garcia recorded a 3.24 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 34 strikeouts across 33.1 innings of relief work this season. Garcia added 1.2 scoreless innings in the NL Wild Card Game loss against the Dodgers, and he established himself as one of the top bullpen options for the Cardinals during the season. The 34-year-old has bounced around a bit during his MLB career but figures to get another shot in St. Louis next year, and he could end up on the fantasy radar if he starts seeing save chances.

Astros' Luis Garcia: Diagnosed with knee discomfort

Garcia exited Saturday's game against Boston with right knee discomfort, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Garcia gave up a grand slam in the first inning and had another run charged to his line after he walked the leadoff man in the second inning before exiting. The good news for the Astros is that he isn't dealing with an arm problem. If the knee issue passes quickly, the fact that he exited early could in theory leave him able to return within the next few days, but it's possible the injury is serious enough that he'll have to be removed from the roster.

Astros' Luis Garcia: Takes eighth loss

Garcia (11-8) suffered the loss against Tampa Bay on Wednesday, allowing six runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out six across five innings. Garcia wasn't helped by his defense, as a two-out error during the second inning led to three unearned runs. However, the right-hander wasn't blame-free in contributing to his own demise, as he gave up a pair of long balls and four total extra-base hits. Garcia did manage to extend his streak of lasting five innings or more to 10 starts, and he has yielded a strong 2.96 ERA and 1.24 WHIP over that stretch. He finishes the campaign with a 3.30 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 173:52 K:BB across 160.1 innings.

Nationals' Luis Garcia: Battling rib issue

Garcia remains out of the lineup Saturday against Boston due to soreness in his rib cage, Maria Torres of The Athletic reports. Garcia will miss his second straight game with the issue, and it's very possible he's already played his last game of the season, as the Nationals have no reason to risk him aggravating anything on the last day of the campaign. If that's the case, he'll end the year with a .242/.275/.411 line across 70 games. Jordy Mercer will make another start at second base in Garcia's absence.
