Garcia will not start Saturday against the Blue Jays, Pete Caldera of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees announced the decision to give CC Sabathia the ball over Garcia just hours before first pitch. The Red Sox have a two-game lead in the AL East with just two games to play, but the Yankees are going to put as much pressure on their division rival as they can while they are still mathematically in the hunt for the division crown. Garcia could be available out of the bullpen Saturday and could pitch in Sunday's game, but it's hard to confidently bank on any production from him the rest of the way.

Garcia (5-10) allowed five runs on four hits and three walks across 2.1 innings to take the loss Sunday against the Blue Jays. He struck out four.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia allowed runs in the first and second innings before a disastrous third in which he walked the bases loaded before the bullpen allowed all three to score. The left-hander could hardly find the strike zone, throwing a putrid 45 percent of his pitches for strikes and throwing just six first-pitch strikes to 14 hitters. Garcia had allowed just four earned runs over 19.1 innings in his previous four starts and will look to get back on track Friday against this same Toronto club as he looks to make his claim to a postseason rotation spot.

Garcia allowed one unearned run on four hits and no walks across 5.2 innings in a no-decision Monday against the Twins. He struck out nine.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia was superb in this one, throwing 67 percent of his pitches for strikes as he tied his season high in punchouts. He made it through five frames rather easily, but he was removed after a pair of singles and an error resulted in a run to begin the sixth. Garcia has allowed just four earned runs over 19.1 innings over his last four outings and will take a respectable 3.89 ERA into his next scheduled start Sunday against the Blue Jays.

Garcia allowed one run on five hits and one walk while striking out four over 4.2 innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Making his first appearances since Aug. 30, Garcia kept the Rays in check, with a homer off the bat of Kevin Kiermaier accounting for the extent of the damage. Jordan Montgomery is set to start a game this weekend, but it doesn't sound like he will be replacing Garcia or anyone else; manager Joe Girardi suggested this is just a way to give the starting staff more rest. Regardless, Garcia hasn't completed six innings in any of his six starts with the Yankees, and the middling K-rate limits his appeal even in favorable matchups.

Garcia is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the Rays, George A. King of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

A combination of factors -- mainly the expanded rosters at the start of September and Garcia's ineffectiveness since donning pinstripes -- will make this his first start in two weeks if the lefty does indeed get the ball Wednesday. In five starts with the Yankees, Garcia is 0-2 with a 5.11 ERA and has yet to make it through six innings, so if he continues to struggle then a regular slot in the rotation doesn't appear to be guaranteed down the stretch run.

Garcia won't start Monday's game against the Orioles and is expected to be skipped in the rotation this week, Dan Martin of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Garcia having failed to escape the sixth inning in any of his five starts since joining the Yankees and submitting a 5.11 ERA and 1.78 WHIP over that span, he'll be bypassed for his normally scheduled turn Monday in favor of rookie Jordan Montgomery, who has enjoyed some success against Baltimore this season. Since the Yankees are eager to restrict Montgomery's workload this season, it's not expected that he'll permanently displace Garcia in the rotation, but Montgomery's spot start Monday coupled with a team off day Thursday probably means that the veteran won't rejoin the starting ranks until the following week.

Garcia (5-9) took the loss in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Indians after allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits with three walks and five strikeouts over five-plus innings.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia was pulled trailing 2-1 after walking the leadoff man in the sixth inning and neither team was able to alter the score from that point. He was victimized by a key Gary Sanchez passed ball in the opening frame, as that mistake scored the game's opening run from third base while moving another runner into scoring position. A single from the next batter resulted in Cleveland's second run, and that unearned tally ended up earning Garcia his second loss in pinstripes. He's still searching for his first win with New York heading into Monday's road tilt with the Orioles.

Garcia won't start Tuesday against the Indians after the game was postponed due to rain, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees and Indians will make up Tuesday's contest as part of a doubleheader Wednesday, with Garcia simply being moved back in the schedule to start Game 1 of the twin bill. Garcia had previously faced the Tribe in his Yankees debut Aug. 4, lasting 4.2 innings and giving up six runs (five earned) on five hits and four walks.

Garcia allowed four runs - two earned - on five hits and three walks while striking out two batters across four innings Thursday against the Tigers. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia continues to struggle in a Yankees uniform; he hasn't completed six innings in any start for his new club, and the 31-year-old owns an unsightly 5.95 ERA and 15:13 K:BB in four starts (19.2 innings) since landing in the Bronx. Until Garcia straightens things out, it will be difficult to trust him in fantasy lineups. He'll look to turn things around in his next start, which is scheduled for Tuesday against the Indians.

Garcia gave up three runs on five hits and three walks over 5.1 innings Wednesday while striking out three but didn't factor into the decision in a 5-3 win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran lefty's now given up at least three runs in five straight starts, saddling him a 5.22 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 29.1 innings over that stretch. The Yankees need Garcia to at least give them reliable innings with Masahiro Tanaka (shoulder) and CC Sabathia (knee) both struggling to stay healthy, but so far he hasn't held up his end of that bargain. Garcia will next take the mound Tuesday in Detroit.
