That set off a series of three other transactions at Springfield and Palm Beach as the organization backfilled Garcia and those who replaced him.
The 24-year-old Garcia is 8-for-21 (.381) over those last six games and has an overall line of .270/.357/.378 in his first 13 outings since his August 5 promotion from Springfield. The native of Venezuela also appeared in 18 games for the Redbirds in 2011.
Albitz spent the first half of the 2012 season with A-Advanced Palm Beach, batting .266 (33-for-124) with 13 RBI, 15 runs and five doubles in 43 Florida State games.
The right-handed hitter was acquired from an independent league team last August before joining Batavia to finish the 2011 season.
Pritchard began 2012 in extended spring training, then spent a week in Palm Beach in May before returning to EST. The right-handed hitter then was assigned to Springfield for another week that same month for injury coverage without appearing in a game before another trip back to EST.
Shortly after, Pritchard was moved to Quad Cities, where he remained until being returned to Palm Beach on July 17. In 60 games between those two clubs, he has logged a line of .270/.333/.271. Pritchard fanned 56 times in 130 at-bats. He was signed as a non-drafted free agent last June.
Since joining Palm Beach on August 2, the 23-year-old has just one single and three walks in 13 plate appearances for a line of .100/.308/.100. The left-handed hitter also appeared earlier this season with Batavia and Quad Cities. Overall, Reyes' 2012 line is .223/.312/.293.
