That explains his absence from Tuesday's early-evening game against the Blue Jays. It's not clear how long Garcia might be sidelined. The third baseman was batting .237/.278/.348 with four home runs and 16 RBI through 34 games this season for Atlanta.

Adonis Garcia hit a three-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.

Garcia was the only Braves hitter able to break through against Cards starter Mike Leake, jumping on the first pitch he saw in the seventh inning for the three-run jack. The homer was his third of the season, and his first since April 21. Garcia endured a rough start to the year, and even with hits in 13 of his last 15 games the 32-year-old is hitting just .239/.263/.349 overall.

Adonis Garcia went 2-for-4 with a home run in a win over the Padres on Saturday.

It was a game of firsts for Garcia -- his first homer of the year, his first multi-hit game of the year, and his first extra-base hit since his second game of the year. The homer, off Padres starter Clayton Richard in the sixth inning, pushed the Braves' lead to two after Brandon Phillips hit a go-ahead homer a few minutes prior. The team's everyday third baseman, Garcia is batting just .179/.220/.282 on the year and will need to pick it up if he hopes to hold onto the starting gig beyond April.

Garcia has been held out of action all week after tweaking his hamstring last Saturday, but he told reporters after Thursday's workout that he should be ready to return to the Braves' Grapefruit League lineup soon.

Adonis Garcia had a two-run homer and a walk Friday as the Braves beat a Mets split-squad 5-2.

The Braves are content with him at third base for now, so he should have some NL-only value early on. Maybe Rio Ruiz can come up and challenge him for the job in June or July.

Adonis Garcia went 3-for-5 with a go-ahead RBI single in a 3-2 win over the Marlins.
