Jaime Garcia has been scratched from his scheduled start against the Blue Jays on Saturday.
CC Sabathia will start in his place. The Yankees are still in contention for a division title, as they sit two games back of the Red Sox with two left to play, so they'll pull out all of the stops trying to win on Saturday. Sep 30 - 10:15 AM

Jaime Garcia was roughed up on Sunday, giving up five runs in just 2 1/3 innings in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Garcia was unable to find the magic he had against the Twins on Monday when he struck out nine and gave up just one run in nearly six innings. He couldn't find the strike zone (three walks) and when he did find it, he was hit hard. He'll look to rebound from this outing on Friday in a rematch with the Blue Jays.
Sep 24 - 5:33 PM

Jaime Garcia struck out nine and allowed just an unearned run over 5 2/3 innings Monday against the Twins.

Garcia should have gotten a win against his old team, but an Aaron Judge error tied the game in the fifth and the Yankees didn't reclaim the lead until the bottom of the sixth. Garcia now has a 3.86 ERA in seven starts for New York. It's 2.97 if you throw out his Yankees debut.
Sep 18 - 10:56 PM

Jaime Garcia threw 4 2/3 innings of one-run ball Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Yankees.

Garcia was lifted after allowing a two-out single to Lucas Duda in the bottom of the fifth inning and he got into a verbal confrontation in the dugout with manager Joe Girardi after the early hook. But the move worked out, with the Yankees' bullpen yielding just one run to Tampa Bay the rest of the way in an eventual 3-2 victory for New York. Garcia is lined up to face the Twins at home in his next scheduled start.
Sep 13 - 5:04 PM

Jaime Garcia yielded two runs -- one earned -- in five-plus innings Wednesday in a loss to the Indians.

It was probably Garcia's best start to date for the Yankees, but he didn't get his usual run support. He's 1-2 with a 5.11 ERA in five starts for the club. He might find himself skipped on occasion in September.
Aug 30 - 4:45 PM

Tuesday's game between the Yankees and Indians has been postponed due to rain.

The teams will get together for a traditional doubleheader beginning at 1 PM ET on Wednesday. Trevor Bauer and Jaime Garcia will get the ball in Game 1 while Josh Tomlin and Jordan Montgomery are scheduled to square off in Game 2.
Aug 29 - 3:55 PM

Jaime Garcia lasted four-plus innings and allowed four runs -- two earned -- Thursday in a no-decision against the Tigers.

Garcia was long gone before the fun stuff started happening. He's failed to last six innings in any of his four starts for the Yankees, going 0-1 with a 5.95 ERA and 13 walks in 19 2/3 innings.
Aug 24 - 6:04 PM

Jaime Garcia allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings and had to settle for a no-decision as his team beat the Mets on Wednesday.

He struck out three batters, issued three walks and surrendered five base hits, including a solo home run by catcher Rene Rivera in the fifth inning. Garcia has been decent this year, notching a 5-8 record with a 4.52 ERA in 22 starts split between the Braves, Twins and Yankees.
Aug 16 - 11:26 PM

Jaime Garcia wasn't at his best in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday, surrendering three runs on seven hits across 5 2/3 innings.

The veteran southpaw also walked three while striking out six on the night. All of the damage against him was done via the long ball, with Hanley Ramirez clubbing a two-run homer in the first and Andrew Benintendi adding a solo shot in the fifth. Garcia will carry a 4.50 ERA and 1.38 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Mets in New York.
Aug 11 - 11:11 PM

Jaime Garcia struggled in his Yankees debut on Friday against the Indians, allowing six runs (five earned) over 4 2/3 innings.

Not the best first impression. Recently acquired from the Twins, Garcia gave up five hits and walked four batters. He was pulled at 87 pitches in the fifth inning. While it was a disappointing performance, Garcia became the first pitcher to make three straight appearances as a starter for three different teams since Gus Weyhing did it in 1895.
Aug 4 - 10:27 PM

Yankees acquired LHP Jaime Garcia and cash considerations from the Twins in exchange for RHP Zach Littell and LHP Dietrich Enns.

Garcia, who made just one start for Minnesota after being acquired from Atlanta, holds a 4.29 ERA over 19 outings this season, putting up a 92/44 K/BB ratio across 119 2/3 innings. The Yankees are still pursuing Sonny Gray even after the addition of Garcia, but the left-hander offers the Bombers a little more protection in case they aren't able to reel in Gray.
Jul 30 - 8:56 AM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Yankees are close to acquiring Jaime Garcia from the Twins.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports was first to report that the two sides were in "deep discussions." Zach Littell was scratched from his scheduled start at Double-A Trenton on Saturday and MLB.com's Mark Feinsand says he's headed to the Twins. Garcia will have made just one start for the Twins after being traded there from the Braves. The Yankees are expected to still shop for pitching help even after finishing the deal for Garcia, with Sonny Gray at the top of their list.
Jul 30 - 8:26 AM

Making his Twins debut in Friday's win over the A's, Jaime Garcia surrendered three runs on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Garcia just came over from the Braves in trade on Monday. He struck out seven and walked three in his first outing in the new duds, with a two-run double by Ryan Lavarnway in the fourth and an RBI single by Khris Davis in the fifth spelling the run-scoring damage on his line. It has been reported that Garcia could potentially be on the trade block again before the weekend is out, so he might not want to buy a timeshare in Minneapolis just yet.
Jul 29 - 1:44 AM

Joel Sherman of the New York Post believes Jaime Garcia could be viewed as a fallback option for the Yankees if the team is unable to acquire Sonny Gray.

In a wild turn of events, the Twins are reportedly shopping a pitcher they just traded for. New York and Seattle were among Garcia's top suitors before his trade to Minnesota and the Yankees could pivot to him if talks with Gray fall through. As of now, Garcia is set to make his Twins debut Friday against Oakland.
Jul 27 - 5:25 PM

Jaime Garcia will make his Twins debut on Friday in Oakland.

Garcia was acquired via trade from the Braves on Monday. The Twins have not announced yet whose spot in the rotation he'll take, but Bartolo Colon would certainly appear to be vulnerable.
