ST.

García, 25, a minor league free agent signing out of Ciego de Avila, Cuba, in February of 2017, is batting .269 (94-for-350) with 21 HR and 67 RBI in 98 games this season for the first-place Redbirds, ranking 6th in the Pacific Coast League in home runs, T4th in extra-base hits (47), 7th in slugging percentage (.531) and total bases (186), and T9th in RBI.
The red-hot García is the most recent recipient of the PCL Player of the Week and Cardinals Minor League Player of the Month awards.
With his first game appearance, García, who has been assigned uniform no. 28, will become the seventh player to make his Major League debut for the Cardinals this season, joining Jordan Hicks, Yario Muñoz, Tyler O’Neill, Austin Gomber, Daniel Poncedeleon, and Dakota Hudson.
O’Neill has appeared in 23 games for St. Louis during his Major League debut season, batting .309 (17-for-55) with three home runs and nine RBI. Since his most recent recall on July 31, the Canadian outfielder has hit safely in all four games (.636, 7-11)
