Dodger Thoughts

Jon Weisman's outlet for dealing psychologically with the Los Angeles Dodgers, baseball and life

Yimi Garcia had arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday

Atlanta Braves vs Los Angeles Dodgers

By Jon Weisman

Yimi Garcia had arthroscopic surgery Tuesday on his left knee to remove a small bone fragment, the Dodgers said Wednesday.

The operation caps a mostly lost year for Garcia, who pitched 8 1/3 innings this year with a 3.24 ERA and 11 baserunners against four strikeouts, before going on the disabled list April 23 with right biceps soreness.

In the process, Garcia became the answer to a future trivia question — he was moved to the 60-day disabled list May 27 to make room on the 40-man roster for the debut of Julio Urías.

Garcia, who turned 26 last month, has a career ERA of 3.12 in 75 innings with 81 strikeouts and a 0.95 WHIP.
