Christian Garcia was through 5 2/3 innings, and threw 69 pitches, 48 for strikes. With a 1-2 count, trainer Tim Lentych came out and after a long meeting with the infield and coaching staff, Garcia and Lentych walked off together.
I will get whatever updates I can for you.
Garcia was pitching at 89-92 MPH on the radar gun.
According to Frankie Piliere, Hector Noesi is ready for Double-A and could be the guy if Garcia has any sort of serious injury.
To update, and a lot of this is on my Twitter, there is/was no obvious injury to Garcia. He looked into the dugout after his 1-1 pitch. He was not clearly favoring anything. I will continue to update as events warrant.
Garcia is now in the dugout with a jacket on…he’s still here. It’s the bottom of the 8th inning.
