According to CSN’s Mark Zuckerman, Christian Garcia will not pitch for the next 10-14 days with a forearm strain. He had been feeling some discomfort above his right wrist when an MRI confirmed the injury. Garcia has been particularly injury prone throughout his career, most notably having two Tommy John surgeries, but it does not appear that this injury will be a long-term concern. Garcia will be stretched out as a starter to pitch at AAA when he is deemed healthy.
