Yimi Garcia got to close Friday and struck out two in a perfect ninth against the Padres.
Garcia has looked like the Dodgers' best reliever dating back to the spring, so he was due to get a look in the ninth at some point. Of course, it's probably too late for him to rack up a bunch of saves, what with Kenley Jansen's return getting nearer. But those with an open roster spot could pick him up anyway. Apr 25 - 1:39 AM

Yimi Garcia struck out four in two scoreless innings of relief Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Garcia might well be the Dodgers' best right-handed reliever with Kenley Jansen out; he had a 15/1 K/BB ratio this spring and he's fanned six while allowing one run and two hits in four innings during the regular season. We don't expect that it will lead to immediate save chances, but he is worth watching.

Dodgers recalled RHP Yimi Garcia from Triple-A Albuquerque.

This is his first call-up to the big leagues. Garcia had a 3.10 ERA, five saves, and 69/18 K/BB ratio over 61 innings this season in Triple-A and figures pitch in middle relief this month.

Yimi Garcia was diagnosed with a bruised right kneecap.

Surgery won't be necessary, but the Dodgers will take it slow with him in the spring. Garcia was added to the 40-man roster after posting a 2.54 ERA, 19 saves and 85/14 K/BB ratio over 60 1/3 innings of relief last season in Double-A.

Yimi Garcia will have his knee examined on Sunday.

It's not clear when or how he suffered the injury or how serious it might be. Garcia, 23, was added to the 40-man roster over the winter but will almost surely begin the year in the minors.

Dodgers purchased the contract of RHP Yimi Garcia from Double-A Chattanooga.

The move was made on Wednesday to protect Yimi from December's Rule 5 Draft. The 23-year-old is coming off a 2.54 ERA, 19 saves and 85/14 K/BB ratio over 60 1/3 innings of relief this season in Double-A.
