Garcia's average has not dipped below .300 this season. Though he is hitting .214 over his last 25 games, he has four multihit efforts and three RBIs over his last seven games. Garcia, a first-time All-Star in 2017, was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained right thumb on July 26 but needed only one day of rehab before returning to the lineup on Aug. 8.
