Garcia to receive a second opinion on forearm

VIERA, Fla. -- Manager Davey Johnson said that right-hander Christian Garcia still doesn't know what's wrong with his right forearm, and the pitcher will get a second opinion.

Garcia was originally diagnosed with strained ligaments in the forearm. The injury doesn't bother him when he throws his breaking pitches, but it bothers him when he throws the fastball.

"He is day-to-day. We'll see how he feels. [He'll] get treatment and wait on the other opinion," Johnson said.
