News: Garcia was released by the Dodgers on Wednesday, Bill Shaikin of the LA Times reports.
Impact: Garcia struggled mightily in four appearances with Triple-A Oklahoma City this season, posting a 7.36 ERA while surrendering eight hits and four walks in 7.1 innings. The 37-year-old will have to look elsewhere for a minor league contract, likely serving simply as organizational depth wherever he lands.

News: Garcia has signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.
Impact: After spending 2014 in the Chinese Professional Baseball League, Garcia will look to continue his career in the United States. He'll provide pitching depth in the Los Angeles organization but doesn't seem like a good bet to reach the majors again.

News: Garcia has agreed to a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Impact: Garcia, a 38-year-old right-hander, was 4-7 with a 4.37 ERA for Baltimore and Atlanta in 13 starts and four relief appearances in 2013. After the Braves released him late in spring training last year, the two-time All-Star played for the EDA Rhinos in Taiwan. "Obviously, we're building starter depth," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday.
