    Garcia went 1-for-4 with a two-run single and a walk in a win over the Angels on Friday.

    Impact

    Garcia operated out of the leadoff spot and came through with a clutch single in the sixth inning to knot the score at 4-4. The veteran has largely been successful during his few opportunities out of the top of the order, as he's now hitting .375 with a double, three home runs and eight RBI across 24 at-bats from that slot in the lineup.

    Garcia went 2-for-4 with two runs in a win over the Red Sox on Friday.

    Impact

    Garcia's recent two-game absence due to a hamstring issue did nothing to cool off his red-hot bat. The slugger had hit safely in nine of the 10 games prior to his absence, and he's commemorated his return by hitting in his first four games back as well. Factoring in Friday's production, Garcia has now raised his season average 26 points to .304 since May 21.

    Garcia (hamstring) went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Impact

    Garcia erased an early 1-0 deficit with a 353-foot laser to right that plated Daniel Robertson. The slugger appears to be recovered from the hamstring soreness that cost him the last three games, and he's now reached safely in 11 straight starts.

    News

    Garcia (hamstring) will serve as the designated hitter and bat second Tuesday against the Tigers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Impact

    Garcia missed three straight contests due to left hamstring soreness, but he's been given the green light to return Tuesday. Prior to suffering the injury, he'd registered three hits in each of his last two games (6-for-10).
