Braves GM John Coppolella said that Adonis Garcia is currently the team's first option at third base.
The Braves are hoping to transition Hector Olivera to the outfield, which could open starts at third. Coppolella did note that Garcia's not guaranteed to start at the hot corner, but he'll at least see his share of opportunities. Said the Braves GM, "There are other guys that we like that could get opportunities there. But right now, I think [Garcia]'s earned first crack at it." The 30-year-old infielder saw 191 at-bats with the big club in 2015, hitting .277/.293/.497 with 10 homers and 26 RBI. Wed, Nov 11, 2015 08:49:00 PM

Adonis Garcia launched a pair of solo home runs in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Garcia deposited a hanging John Lackey curveball into the left-field seats in the fourth inning and then smacked a hanging changeup from Tyler Lyons into the same seats in the sixth. While he's managed just a .294 on-base percentage with the Braves, Garcia has banged out 10 homers in 187 at-bats.

Adonis Garcia (back) returned to the Braves lineup on Friday, going 1-for-4 in a victory over the Cardinals.

Garcia got the start at the hot corner and batted cleanup for the Braves on Friday evening. He's hitting .273/.289/.470 with eight homers and 23 RBI in 55 games with the big league club this season.

Adonis Garcia (back) flied out as a pinch-hitter in the Braves' win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

Garcia was scratched Tuesday with a stiff back and will remain day-to-day the rest of the way. The 30-year-old Cuban corner man has shown a nice spark in limited action this season for the Braves, slashing .269/.286/.474 with eight home runs and 23 RBI in 54 games.

Adonis Garcia has been scratched from the Braves' starting lineup Tuesday due to a stiff back.

Nick Swisher is now starting. Garcia is fine, but any injury at this point can be potentially season-ending.

Adonis Garcia (leg) went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout in his return to action Sunday.

Garcia missed Saturday's game after tweaking something in his leg while running the bases on Friday evening. It's obviously nothing to worry about. The 30-year-old corner infielder and outfielder has flashed some nice pop in his first major league season and should carry a bit of fantasy value over these next two weeks.

Adonis Garcia was removed from Friday's game against the Phillies with an apparent leg injury.

Garcia sustained the injury while legging out a double. He'll presumably head for further examination and the Braves should have an update on his status shortly.

Adonis Garcia went 3-for-5 with two RBI singles and three total RBI in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

Garcia singled home runs in the third and eighth innings, with an RBI double-play grounder sandwiched in-between. He's now driven in six runs in his last two games. For the season, the 30-year-old third-baseman is hitting .272/.282/.490 with eight homers and 18 RBI over 151 at-bats.
Sun, Sep 13, 2015 05:42:00 PM

Adonis Garcia went 3-for-5 and hit his sixth homer Wednesday against the Rockies.

Garcia has shown ample pop, but he has a .256 OBP in 114 at-bats and he's a bad defender at third. He's due to become a backup next week when Hector Olivera arrives in the majors.
Wed, Aug 26, 2015 11:31:00 PM

Adonis Garcia hit his fourth homer Thursday as the Braves edged the Marlins 9-8 on Thursday.

Garcia hit three homers in 331 at-bats in Triple-A. He has four in just 50 at-bats in the majors. Still, his average stands at .220 and he's drawn just two walks in his 14 games. Hector Olivera figures to be an upgrade at third base for the Braves once he's healthy.

Adonis Garcia sent the Braves home happy with a walk-off two-run home run in the 12th inning against the Giants on Monday.

The Braves had fallen behind 8-7 in the top half of the frame, but Garcia played hero when he drilled a two-run shot to right-center against Ryan Vogelsong. He finished 2-for-6 on the night with a double along with the homer. In 11 games in the majors this season, he has nine hits in 40 plate appearances. Six of those nine hits are extra-base hits (three doubles, three homers).

Adonis Garcia hit a solo home run in the ninth inning, but the Braves lost in 11 frames to the Orioles on Monday.

Garcia finished 2-for-5 overall. His home run, off of Zach Britton, broke a scoreless tie and put the Braves in position to sneak away with a win but Jim Johnson blew the save in the bottom half of the inning. The 30-year-old Cuban has homered in back-to-back games.

The 30-year-old journeyman was hitting .284/.314/.369 with three homers and 47 RBI in 87 contests at Triple-A. He'll provide bench depth for the Braves.
Sat, Jul 25, 2015 03:21:00 PM

Garcia, 30, earned the promotion by batting .351/.380/.455 over 34 games for Gwinnett. The Cuban defector gives the Braves versatility and will be making his major league debut when he gets into a game.
