Report: Marlins designating OF Avisail Garcia for assignment

Avisail Garcia

The Miami Marlins are designating former All-Star outfielder Avisail Garcia for assignment, ESPN reported Tuesday.

Garcia, who turns 33 this month, has been on the injured list since April 28 with a left hamstring strain.

In 18 games with the Marlins prior to the injury, Garcia hit .240 with two home runs and two RBIs. He batted .105 (2-for-19) with seven strikeouts in five rehab games at Triple-A Jacksonville.

Garcia is in the third year of a four-year, $53 million contract he signed with Miami in December 2021. The Marlins still owe him about $24 million, per ESPN.

Garcia is a career .263 hitter with 140 homers and 524 RBIs in 1,104 games over 13 seasons with the Detroit Tigers (2012-13), Chicago White Sox (2013-18), Tampa Bay Rays (2019), Milwaukee Brewers (2020-21) and Marlins. He was an All-Star with the White Sox in 2017.
