Garcia (1-3) allowed three runs (one earned) on seven hits while striking out eight over eight innings in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Nick Markakis and Garcia himself made back-to-back errors to lead off the third inning, leading to two runs that the Braves offense couldn't get back against a dominant Stephen Strasburg. It was still Garcia's best start of the season, and he'll carry that momentum into his next outing Friday at AT&T Park against a Giants squad that owns a weak .288 wOBA against southpaws.

Garcia allowed four runs on three hits and four walks across 5.1 innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Blue Jays. He struck out four.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia induced an impressive 10 ground ball outs in this one, but he gave up a pair of runs in a fourth-inning rally and another on a solo home run in the fifth. He was unlucky to see the bullpen allow an inherited runner to score in the sixth, which closed his account for the night before the hosts tied the score, eliminating his chances of earning his second win. Garcia has struggled with his command this season, posting a subpar 25:22 K:BB, which is partly to explain his 4.65 ERA and 1.40 WHIP. The club has still won four times in his seven starts, and he will look to produce an improved performance Sunday against the Nationals.

Garcia (1-2) gave up four runs on six hits and five walks over six innings in Wednesday's loss to Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Making his first official start since April 29 because his last one was rained out, Garcia looked rough out there, struggling with his control again. He's walked five batters twice in a row now, and bases on balls have haunted Garcia for much of his career. The veteran lefty is a low-end fantasy play who's relevant mostly in deeper formats thanks to the dearth of quality starting pitchers these days. His next turn in the rotation lines up for Tuesday against Toronto.

Garcia (1-1) allowed two runs on three hits and five walks while striking out three batters over six innings during Saturday's win over Milwaukee.

EDGE Analysis

This was a solid outing from Garcia, as the Brewers have scored the third-most runs in the majors. Additionally, the lefty has allowed exactly two runs in each of his past three outings for a 2.95 ERA. His 5.2 K/9 and 13.5 strikeout percentage for the year hardly move the fantasy needle, but Garcia's smoke-and-mirrors pitch arsenal can clearly still keep hitters off balance. A home date with the Mets is up next for Garcia.

Garcia allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out six batters over six innings during Saturday's loss to Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia has been sharper with each outing and has chipped his ERA down to 4.24. The uptick in strikeouts was also encouraging, as the southpaw entered Saturday's outing with just eight punchouts over 17.1 innings. The veteran is unlikely to receive the run support needed to pile up many wins, and his career 7.22 K/9 and 19.1 strikeout percentage aren't standout marks. Still chasing his first victory of the season, Garcia projects to face the Brewers next weekend.

Garcia didn't factor into the decision Monday against the Padres despite allowing just two runs on five hits and three walks across 6.1 innings. He struck out four.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia allowed a run on three straight hits to start the game, but he settled down and cruised into the seventh before a solo homer with one out ended his night. The veteran tied his season high in strikeouts and made it into the seventh inning for the first time in three starts, needing just 87 pitches to do so. The quality start lowered his ERA to 4.67 after an inauspicious start and he will look to continue his improved performance Saturday against the Phillies.

Garcia (0-1) allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings Wednesday but was able to escape with a no-decision in a 5-4 win over the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Giancarlo Stanton took Garcia deep twice, but the left-hander got enough offensive support to avoid his second loss of the season. The Braves are counting on him to provide some stability to their rotation, but so far he isn't holding up his end of the bargain. Garcia will look for a better result Monday at home against the Padres.

Garcia (0-1) allowed four earned runs on six hits and two walks on his way to taking the loss Thursday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

The left-hander did not allow a run through the first four innings and exhibited good control (56 of 86 pitches went for strikes), but things fell apart in the fifth and sixth as Travis d'Arnaud struck with a two-run double and Wilmer Flores bashed a two-run home run the following frame. It didn't help that the Braves were only able to muster three hits off Mets starter Matt Harvey, but the middle-inning deterioration and lack of strikeouts don't bode well for Garcia if they become a trend moving forward. The veteran southpaw's next outing is scheduled for Wednesday against the Marlins.

Garcia gave up one run on five hits and a walk while striking out four over 5.2 innings during Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

A Nick Castellanos solo home run in the fourth inning was the only blemish on the lefty's outing. Garcia now has a strong 2.63 ERA through 13.2 spring innings, but his 9:6 K:BB likely offers a better reflection of his fantasy upside in 2017.

Garcia allowed two walks and struck out one in three no-hit, shutout innings during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The Braves are keeping his workload fairly low for now -- pitchers typically go longer than three innings in their third spring starts -- but Garcia seems well on pace to be ready for Opening Day. If the 30-year-old lefty can stay healthy in 2017, he could provide a solid, if low-upside, return on a minimal fantasy investment.
