Garcia was recalled from Toledo on Monday when Alex Avila and Anibal Sanchez went on the 15-day disabled list, but it became clear early on that the outfielder's stay would likely be temporary. His lone appearance was a pinch-hit entrance Monday against the Orioles. He went 0-for-2 with a strikeout.
Garcia became a regular in Detroit's outfield while center fielder Austin Jackson was on the disabled list, but Jackson's return last Friday closed that opportunity. If Garcia's not playing regularly in Detroit, the Tigers want the 22-year-old playing every day in Toledo.
