Garcia struck out three, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.75 WHIP on the season.
Sep. 24 6:49 PM PT7:49 PM MT8:49 PM CT9:49 PM ET21:49 ET1:49 GMT9:49 6:49 PM MST8:49 PM EST9:19 PM VEN5:49 UAE (+1)8:49 PM CT-Jaime Garcia fell to 5-10, allowing five runs on four hits and three walks in 2.1 innings, as the New York Yankees lost to the Toronto Blue Jays 9-5 on Sunday. Garcia struck out four, ending the game with a 4.41 ERA and 1.41 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Garcia jeopardized his chance of making New York's postseason roster. Garcia (1-3) had five 3-0 counts among his 14 batters and was removed after throwing eight consecutive balls.
Sep. 19 10:28 PM PT11:28 PM MT12:28 AM CT1:28 AM ET1:28 ET5:28 GMT13:28 10:28 PM MST12:28 AM EST12:58 AM VEN9:28 UAE12:28 AM CT-Jaime Garcia allowed one run - zero earned - on four hits in 5.2 innings as the New York Yankees defeated the Minnesota Twins 2-1 on Monday. Garcia struck out nine, ending the game with a 4.19 ERA and 1.38 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Garcia, a Twin for all of five days in July, put together his best start since being shipped by Minnesota to the Yankees earlier this summer. He's still searching for his first win in pinstripes, though, as he's received a paltry 3.09 runs of support per nine innings in his seven starts with the team. The lefty has now yielded just two earned runs in 15 1/3 innings over his last three outings.
Sep. 13 2:41 PM PT3:41 PM MT4:41 PM CT5:41 PM ET17:41 ET21:41 GMT5:41 2:41 PM MST4:41 PM EST5:11 PM VEN1:41 UAE (+1)4:41 PM CT-Jaime Garcia allowed one run on five hits and one walk in 4.2 innings as the New York Yankees defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 on Wednesday.

Aug. 30 1:52 PM PT2:52 PM MT3:52 PM CT4:52 PM ET16:52 ET20:52 GMT4:52 1:52 PM MST3:52 PM EST4:22 PM VEN0:52 UAE (+1)3:52 PM CT-Jaime Garcia fell to 5-9, allowing two runs - one earned - on six hits and three walks in 5.0 innings, as the New York Yankees lost to the Cleveland Indians 2-1 on Wednesday.

Aug. 17 9:10 AM PT10:10 AM MT11:10 AM CT12:10 PM ET12:10 ET16:10 GMT0:10 9:10 AM MST11:10 AM EST11:40 AM VEN20:10 UAE11:10 AM CT-Jaime Garcia allowed three runs on five hits and three walks in 5.1 innings as the New York Yankees defeated the New York Mets 5-3 on Wednesday. Garcia struck out three, ending the game with a 4.52 ERA and 1.38 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Garcia is hardly great anymore, but he's been flat-out bad with the Yankees. He has a 6.32 ERA and 1.72 WHIP in his first three starts in pinstripes.
Aug. 12 10:19 PM PT11:19 PM MT12:19 AM CT1:19 AM ET1:19 ET5:19 GMT13:19 10:19 PM MST12:19 AM EST12:49 AM VEN9:19 UAE12:19 AM CT-Jaime Garcia allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks in 5.2 innings as the New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox 5-4 on Friday. Garcia struck out six, ending the game with a 4.50 ERA and 1.38 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Garcia's first two starts as a Yankee haven't been impressive, as he's permitted nine runs (eight earned) despite striking out 10 batters in 10 1/3 innings. He'll try again for a first win with his new club when he faces the Mets - a team the veteran lefty has lost to twice this season - on Wednesday.
Aug. 5 10:32 PM PT11:32 PM MT12:32 AM CT1:32 AM ET1:32 ET5:32 GMT13:32 10:32 PM MST12:32 AM EST1:02 AM VEN9:32 UAE12:32 AM CT-Jaime Garcia fell to 5-8, allowing six runs - five earned - on five hits and four walks in 4.2 innings, as the New York Yankees lost to the Cleveland Indians 7-2 on Friday. Garcia struck out four, ending the game with a 4.49 ERA and 1.36 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Garcia wasn't very sharp in his Yankees debut, issuing four walks for the first time since May 16. The recently acquired lefty entered the matchup on a three-start winning streak in which he posted a 3.05 ERA, and he'll look to get back on track in a potentially challenging assignment against the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium in a week.
July 30 7:00 AM PT8:00 AM MT9:00 AM CT10:00 AM ET10:00 ET14:00 GMT22:00 7:00 AM MST9:00 AM EST9:30 AM VEN18:00 UAE9:00 AM CT-The Yankees have acquired Garcia from the Twins for a pair of minor league pitchers.
Analysis: It's the second time in a week Garcia has been on the move, having been dealt from Atlanta on Monday. He's 5-7 with a 4.29 ERA overall this season - he made one start with the Twins - and could play a prominent role in the Yankees' rotation down the stretch.
July 29 10:00 AM PT11:00 AM MT12:00 PM CT1:00 PM ET13:00 ET17:00 GMT1:00 10:00 AM MST12:00 PM EST12:30 PM VEN21:00 UAE12:00 PM CT-Jaime Garcia improved to 5-7, allowing three runs on eight hits and three walks in 6.2 innings, as the Minnesota Twins defeated the Oakland Athletics 6-3 on Friday. Garcia struck out seven, ending the game with a 4.29 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Garcia made his Twins debut after being acquired along with catcher Anthony Recker from the Braves on Monday in a trade for minor league pitcher Huascar Ynoa.
July 24 2:48 PM PT3:48 PM MT4:48 PM CT5:48 PM ET17:48 ET21:48 GMT5:48 2:48 PM MST4:48 PM EST5:18 PM VEN1:48 UAE (+1)4:48 PM CT-The Twins have acquired Garcia from the Braves along with catcher Anthony Recker in exchange for minor league right-hander Huascar Ynoa.
Analysis: Garcia's first season in Atlanta hasn't been great, as he's compiled a 4-7 record and a 4.30 ERA in 18 starts, but he should still help out a Minnesota staff that ranks 13th in the AL in starters' ERA. The nine-year veteran also owns seven career postseason starts, though he's 0-3 with a 3.94 ERA in those games.
July 22 10:31 AM PT11:31 AM MT12:31 PM CT1:31 PM ET13:31 ET17:31 GMT1:31 10:31 AM MST12:31 PM EST1:01 PM VEN21:31 UAE12:31 PM CT-Jaime Garcia improved to 4-7, allowing three runs on seven hits and one walk in 7.0 innings, as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 12-3 on Friday. Garcia struck out four, ending the game with a 4.30 ERA and 1.32 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Garcia has posted a 2.57 ERA in winning his last two starts after going 0-2 with a 9.41 ERA in his final four starts before the All-Star break. He next pitches in Arizona on Wednesday, and in his first start after the break, Garcia allowed a run and four hits with seven strikeouts over seven innings in a 7-1 win over the Diamondbacks.
July 20 7:32 PM PT8:32 PM MT9:32 PM CT10:32 PM ET22:32 ET2:32 GMT10:32 7:32 PM MST9:32 PM EST10:02 PM VEN6:32 UAE (+1)9:32 PM CT-According to multiple media reports Thursday night, the Twins were attempting to complete a trade with the Braves for Garcia. Minnesota reportedly would send Atlanta only minor league talent in the deal.
Analysis: The left-hander is 3-7 with a 4.33 ERA in 17 starts this season, his first with the Braves after spending eight seasons in St. Louis.
July 16 6:23 PM PT7:23 PM MT8:23 PM CT9:23 PM ET21:23 ET1:23 GMT9:23 6:23 PM MST8:23 PM EST8:53 PM VEN5:23 UAE (+1)8:23 PM CT-Garcia improved to 3-7, allowing one run on four hits and three walks in 7.0 innings, as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-1 on Sunday.
Analysis: Garcia struck out seven, ending the game with a 4.33 ERA and 1.33 WHIP on the season.
July 6 9:43 AM PT10:43 AM MT11:43 AM CT12:43 PM ET12:43 ET16:43 GMT0:43 9:43 AM MST11:43 AM EST12:13 PM VEN20:43 UAE11:43 AM CT-Jaime Garcia fell to 2-7, allowing five runs on 10 hits in 6.0 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Houston Astros 10-4 on Wednesday. Garcia struck out five, ending the game with a 4.55 ERA and 1.35 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Garcia was pulled after allowing a leadoff double to Nori Aoki in the Astros' three-run seventh inning. It was another dreadful outing for the left-hander, who is 0-4 in his last seven starts and has given up at least five runs in four straight.
June 30 9:59 AM PT10:59 AM MT11:59 AM CT12:59 PM ET12:59 ET16:59 GMT0:59 9:59 AM MST11:59 AM EST12:29 PM VEN20:59 UAE11:59 AM CT-Jaime Garcia fell to 2-6, allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks in 6.0 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the San Diego Padres 6-0 on Thursday. Garcia struck out six, ending the game with a 4.35 ERA and 1.33 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: It was the third straight start in which Garcia has given up exactly six runs and seven hits. He's also served up five homers in that span after allowing just seven through his first 12 starts, so clearly something isn't right with Garcia and you should avoid using him for now.
June 23 8:59 AM PT9:59 AM MT10:59 AM CT11:59 AM ET11:59 ET15:59 GMT23:59 8:59 AM MST10:59 AM EST11:29 AM VEN19:59 UAE10:59 AM CT-Jaime Garcia allowed six runs on seven hits and three walks in 4.1 innings as the Atlanta Braves defeated the San Francisco Giants 12-11 on Thursday.
