  • Maikel Garcia Returns From Rib Injury

    Headshot for Maikel Garcia

    Kansas City Royals rookie infielder Maikel Garcia (ribs) is starting at third base and batting leadoff on Monday against the Oakland Athletics and right-hander Paul Blackburn. Garcia didn't start the last two games for KC after leaving early on Friday with an injury to his ribs. It's something he's been dealing with for a bit now, but he was able to pinch hit on Sunday and is back in the starting lineup on Monday. The 23-year-old Venezuelan has become the team's regular third baseman and has impressed with a .286 average (96-for-336) in his first big-league season with 41 RBI, 18 stolen bases and 43 runs scored. Garcia has been excellent in August, going 22-for-64 (.344) with a double, eight RBI, four steals and 12 runs scored in 17 games (16 starts).

  • Maikel Garcia Day-To-Day With Rib Inflammation

    Headshot for Maikel Garcia

    Kansas City Royals infielder Maikel Garcia (ribs) is day-to-day with rib inflammation. He experienced upper body soreness last weekend and missed last Saturday's game. The soreness is caused by costochondritis, an inflammation near his ribs. Garcia's injury isn't believed to be serious, and he was already feeling better on Saturday. The 23-year-old is slashing .284/.328/.379 with four home runs, 40 RBI, 43 runs, and 18 stolen bases over 89 games in 2023. Garcia's next chance to return will be the series finale on Sunday against the Cubs. Matt Duffy would see an uptick in playing time if Garcia misses additional time.

  • Maikel Garcia Out Of Saturday's Lineup

    Headshot for Maikel Garcia

    Kansas City Royals rookie infielder Maikel Garcia (upper body) is not in the lineup on Saturday against the Chicago Cubs. Garcia will start on the bench after leaving Friday's series opener against the Cubs with a recurrence of an upper-body ailment that also kept him out for two games last weekend. The 23-year-old should be considered day-to-day at the moment, but there's a chance he'll need a stint on the injured list if he doesn't improve in short order. Matt Duffy is starting at third base and is batting sixth against Cubs left-hander Justin Steele on Saturday. Garcia has been impressive in his first full big-league season in 2023 after playing in nine games in 2022. He's currently hitting .284 (95-for-335) with four homers, 40 RBI, 18 stolen bases and 43 runs in 89 games.

  • Maikel Garcia Leaves Game Early With Injury

    Headshot for Maikel Garcia

    Kansas City Royals rookie infielder Maikel Garcia (upper body) left the game early on Friday against the Chicago Cubs with left upper-body discomfort. Garcia went 0-for-2 in the contest from the leadoff spot before being replaced at third base by Matt Duffy in the fourth inning. The 23-year-old dealt with a similar issue last weekend that caused him to miss two games, so consider him to be day-to-day for now. The Venezuelan infielder has fared well in his first full big-league season in 2023, entering Friday's contest hitting .285/.330/.381 with four home runs, 16 doubles, two triples, 40 RBI, 18 stolen bases and 43 runs scored in 368 trips to the plate over 88 games played. Garcia broke an impressive 18-game hitting streak on Thursday.

  • Maikel Garcia Back In Lineup Against Mariners

    Headshot for Maikel Garcia

    Kansas City Royals rookie infielder Maikel Garcia (upper body) is starting at third base and batting leadoff on Monday against the visiting Seattle Mariners and right-hander Logan Gilbert. Garcia is feeling good enough to play on Monday after missing the team's last two games over the weekend. After playing in just nine games in his rookie campaign in 2022, Garcia has seen more run with the rebuilding Royals in 2023. And in 84 games (349 plate appearances), he's held his own, hitting .286/.330/.384 with four home runs, 15 doubles, 38 RBI, 18 stolen bases and 40 runs scored. The 23-year-old won't give fantasy managers much pop, but he's worth rostering in deep-mixed leagues for his speed atop KC's order.

  • Maikel Garcia Absent On Saturday

    Headshot for Maikel Garcia

    Kansas City Royals third baseman Maikel Garcia was forced to exit early during Friday's game due to upper body discomfort. The Royals have decided to give him another day off to rest on Saturday. The team hasn't given an update on his status, so he should be considered as day-to-day for the moment. In his absence, Matt Duffy will cover third base and bat eighth versus left-hander Steven Matz on Saturday. Fantasy managers will need to check back for another update on Garcia.

  • Maikel Garcia Injured Friday Night

    Headshot for Maikel Garcia

    Kansas City Royals rookie third baseman Maikel Garcia left Friday night's game early against the St. Louis Cardinals early with left upper-body discomfort, according to the team. Garcia will undergo more testing on Saturday, so we should have a better idea by then how serious of an injury it is. If it's an oblique injury, Garcia will most likely need a trip to the injured list. Before leaving prematurely, the 23-year-old infielder went 2-for-2 with two runs scored to raise his season average to .286 with a .714 OPS. Matt Duffy came into replace Garcia at third base. The young Venezuelan has hit a solid .286 (90-for-315) in his first extended opportunity at the big-league level. He hasn't provided much pop (just four homers), but his 18 stolen bases in 83 games have proved useful in deeper fantasy leagues.
