Adonis Garcia (hamstring) could return to Grapefruit League action on Saturday.

Adonis Garcia (hamstring) ran without issue Thursday morning in Braves camp.

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. Garcia is batting .333 (8-for-24) with an .860 OPS in 25 plate appearances this spring.
Mar 16 - 10:49 AM

Adonis Garcia was forced to leave Saturday's Grapefruit League contest due to a sore hamstring.

Garcia pulled up lame while running to first base in the second inning and was lifted for Rio Ruiz. The injury sounds minor, but he'll probably rest a few days to be on the safe side.
Mar 11 - 3:48 PM

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

Walks were about as unusual for Garcia as home runs last year; he had 20 unintentional walks and 14 homers in his 532 at-bats. 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.
Mar 10 - 4:17 PM

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

The Braves trailed 2-0 early on, but they tied things up in the sixth inning before Garcia put them in front in the ninth. The 31-year-old has enjoyed a productive second half and is batting .274/.314/.413 with 14 homers and 63 RBI on the year.

Adonis Garcia went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's victory over the Mets.

The Braves were clinging to a one-run lead until Garcia broke things open with a three-run shot off of reliever Jerry Blevins. Atlanta wound up hanging on for a one-run victory. Garcia is sporting a .326 average with three homers over his last 20 games. He now has 14 longballs and 61 RBI on the season.

Adonis Garcia went 3-for-4 with three RBI in the Braves' win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Garcia did all of his damage on singles, driving in one run in the fourth and two in the sixth. The third baseman is finishing strong in September after slumping through much of June, July, and August. He holds a .724 OPS, 13 homers, and 58 RBI in 123 total games.

Adonis Garcia hit two home runs and scored the game-winning run in the 10th inning as the Braves edged the Phillies 6-4 on Saturday.

Garcia hit a pair of solo shots off Phillies starter Vince Velasquez, and in the eighth he had an RBI groundout to give him three RBI on the night. But it was after a walk in the 10th inning that Garcia came around to score his third run of the game and give the Braves a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The 31-year-old has acquitted himself well in his first full year in the majors, batting .274/.319/.420 with 13 homers, 50 RBI and 52 runs scored overall.

Adonis Garcia went 0-for-4 and committed his 17th error of the year Friday in the loss to the Giants.

Garcia hasn't been a disaster, what with his .263 average and .705 OPS, but he's not a reliable defender at third base and he's probably never going to have the bat to make up for it; he is 31, after all. One would think the Braves would give Rio Ruiz a look in his place next month. It might not be an upgrade, but there's nothing to lose.

Adonis Garcia went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Saturday's lopsided win over the Cardinals.

Garcia hit the three-run jack, his ninth of the year, in the fifth inning off Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez. He also doubled in the game, giving him six doubles in his last nine games. The third baseman has carried over a strong month of July (in which he hit .337/.370/.537) and is enjoying August as well, going 6-for-19 with the homer, five RBI and four runs scored thus far this month. Garcia is hitting .272/.312/.410 overall.
Sun, Aug 7, 2016 12:35:00 AM

Adonis Garcia went 2-for-4 with a home run in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

Garcia went deep off Twins starter Ervin Santana in the second inning for a solo shot. The third baseman is hitting .333 with three home runs, nine RBI and nine runs scored in the month of July. The good month has Garcia's overall line up to .264/.300/.389.
Tue, Jul 26, 2016 10:41:00 PM

Adonis Garcia stroked two hits in four chances, adding an RBI and a run scored on Saturday.

He singled and scored in the first inning. He singled again in the third inning to drive in Freddie Freeman. The 31-year-old is playing most every day for the Braves but has not put up the kind of numbers to be a viable fantasy option. He is batting .257 with 7 home runs in 299 plate appearances.
Sun, Jul 24, 2016 12:43:00 AM

Adonis Garcia went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Reds.
