The Los Angeles Dodgers today, September 11, selected the contract of Albuquerque Isotopes left-handed pitcher Onelki Garcia.
Garcia combined to go 2-4 with a 2.90 ERA (20 ER/62.0 IP) in 35 games (six starts) with Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Albuquerque this season. Overall, Garcia combined to limit opposing hitters to a .209 batting average, including a .149 mark (11-for-74) with 30 strikeouts against left-handers.
The southpaw joined the Isotopes on August 11, made his Triple-A debut on August 12 and appeared in 10 games as a reliever this season with Albuquerque. Garcia did not allow a run in seven of those 10 outings, posting a 3.72 ERA (4 ER/9.2 IP) and limiting opponents to a .176 average (6-for-34), while striking out 14.
The 24-year-old hurler opened the season as a starter with Chattanooga. The Guantanamo, Cuba native went 2-0 with one save and a 1.39 ERA (5 ER/32.1 IP), while limiting opponents to a .175 batting average (20-for-114) with 36 strikeouts in 19 relief appearances as a Lookout.
Garcia was originally selected by the Dodgers in the third round of the 2012 First-Year Player Draft. In a corresponding move, Los Angeles transferred right-handed reliever Shawn Tolleson to the 60-day disabled list.
