Garcia went 1-for-4 with a two-run single and a walk in a win over the Angels on Friday.
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 is not starting Tuesday against Oakland.
Garcia owns a .931 OPS over his last 18 games, hitting .338 with four homers. Austin Meadows will be the designated hitter Tuesday, with Guillermo Heredia starting in right field.

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.
