Detroit Tigers Claim Infielder Off Waivers

The Detroit Tigers have claimed Luis Garcia off of waivers from the Philadelphia Phillies.

Garcia has yet to make his major league debut, but he will be aiming to change that as a member of the Tigers. He was a part of the Phillies' system since the 2018 season, but now the 21-year-old infielder will be aiming to become a major leaguer for Detroit.

Garcia is a player who definitely can be viewed as a project, as the youngster will likely need at least one more season in the minors before making the jump to the bigs. In 55 games this season split between Single-A, Single-A+, and Double-A, he has three home runs, 11 RBIs, and a .167 batting average. Let's see if he can end the year on a high note with the change of scenery.
