Braves | Freddy Garcia solid in relief

Atlanta Braves P Freddy Garcia made his first appearance Sunday, Sept. 1, after being acquired from the Baltimore Orioles Aug. 23, for cash. He worked 4 2/3 scoreless innings of relief, allowing three hits and a walk. "Freddy did a good job saving our bullpen," manager Fredi Gonzalez said.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is expected to be sided as a long reliever, but the skipper also indicated Garcia could see a spot start at times in the final month of the regular season. Either way, he is only worth a look in deepest of NL-only fantasy leagues.
