Garcia batted .282 with a career-high 20 home runs and 72 RBIs for the Tampa Bay Rays last season. He played in 125 games, and he provided depth and another strong defensive option in the outfield as Rays manager Kevin Cashjuggled different alignments.
In five seasons with the Chicago White Sox, Garcia hit .271 with 74 home runs and 289 RBIs, including posting career highs in batting average (.330) and RBIs (80) in 2017, when he was an MLB All-Star.
