Avisail Garcia Injures Oblique

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Avisail Garcia was added to the IL yesterday with an injured oblique. The Rays are confident he won’t be on the IL too long, but oblique injuries are usually 4-6 weeks for baseball players. Guillermo Heredia will most likely take his place in the outfield, he is not worth a look in fantasy.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Avisail Garcia is not projected to be worth a roster spot. His 53.92 projected fantasy points puts him at #83 behind Hunter Pence and ahead of Ian Happ. He has averaged 2.56 fantasy points in his past 196 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.75 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#76) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 44%, he is the #68 most highly owned outfielder. Avisail Garcia is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #49 fantasy position rank.
