Garcia gave up six runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out three over 4.1 innings in a no-decision against the Giants on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

It was a slugfest in Atlanta, with Garcia and opposing starter Matt Cain combining to allow 14 runs and five homers. Garcia gave up solo shots to Buster Posey and Joe Panik. His ERA and WHIP still look respectable despite back-to-back six run outings, and Garcia lines up to face the Padres his next time out, but the middling K-rate limits his appeal as a streaming option.

Garcia (2-5) came out with a no decision after allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks through 5.2 innings Saturday. He struck out seven.

EDGE Analysis

The Marlins knocked Garcia back to earth following a five-game stretch where the 30-year-old had allowed just six earned runs (1.49 ERA). Given his tough-luck over recent outings, it's pretty remarkable Garcia was able to avoid the loss. He still owns a respectable 3.59 ERA and 1.26 WHIP, so he remains a viable fantasy asset, though owners looking for wins may want to look elsewhere. Garcia is lined up to take his next turn in the rotation Thursday against the Giants.

Garcia (2-5) allowed just two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out nine batters during Sunday's loss to the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia was rock-solid Sunday, and only needed a little run support to avoid the loss. He sports a 3.16 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 6.2 K/9, so he's a serviceable fantasy asset. It's probably wise not to expect much help from him in the wins column, though. He lines up face the Marlins in his next start, and it's worth noting that Miami entered Sunday's action with a sixth-ranked .336 wOBA against southpaws this season.

Garcia (2-4) allowed three runs on eight hits while striking out four over 7.2 innings in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

That's now four consecutive quality starts for the veteran lefty, who has a 1.23 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 19:5 K:BB over 29.1 innings during that stretch but only one win to show for it as the Braves continue to offer him poor run support. Garcia will look to keep things rolling Sunday at home against the Mets.

Garcia (2-3) allowed only an unearned run on five hits and three walks while striking out two over seven innings but came away with a no-decision in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

The left-hander held the Angels scoreless through six innings before a Rio Ruiz throwing error while attempting to turn an inning-ending double play allowed Danny Espinosa to score from second base in the seventh. Garcia has now delivered three straight quality starts, and he'll take a 3.18 ERA and 1.25 WHIP into his next outing Tuesday at home against the Phillies.

Garcia (2-3) tossed 6.2 scoreless innings Friday, giving up four hits and two walks while striking out five, in a 2-0 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

He also drove in the game-winning run with a two-out single in the seventh inning. Garcia's 3.58 ERA and 1.27 WHIP are now the lowest they've been all season, and the lefty will try to keep things rolling Wednesday on the road against the Angels.

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.
