Astros Select Luis Garcia to Start in Place of Lance McCullers on Tuesday
April 20Michael ArinzeSportsGrid
Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports that Luis Garcia will start in place of Lance McCullers in Tuesday’s series opener with the Colorado Rockies. The Native Venezuelan has made two appearances this season, with one start. He’s yet to be involved in a decision and has a 2.35 ERA with a 1.30 WHIP.
Luis Garcia will start tomorrow at Colorado in place of McCullers.
Garcia is replacing McCullers, who dealt with some side effects after receiving the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.
The side effects may have contributed to a difficult start in his last outing as McCullers only lasted 3 2/3 innings while allowing six runs and three walks. He even needed to receive intravenous treatment following the game. The Astros have already had multiple starters sidelined following a COVID-19 outbreak in their clubhouse. The absence of those players has taken its toll on the field as they’ve managed just one win in their last eight games.
