When rosters expand, Garcia may boost Nats
NEW YORK -- The Nationals are expected to call up right-handed reliever Christian Garcia to the big leagues when rosters expand to 40 men on Sept. 1, according to a baseball source.
Garcia, a former Yankees farmhand, is a combined 2-0 with a 0.79 ERA and 16 saves in 38 games for Double-A Harrisburg and Triple-A Syracuse.
"He deserves to be in the big leagues," the source said. "He would be a big help to the bullpen."
