MLB: NLDS-Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Adonis Garcia is likely one of the more memorable names that stood out on the Braves roster as they were rebuilding during the middle part of last decade. Though it never seemed as if Garcia would be a long-term option in Atlanta, he did a respectable job as a third baseman and infielder. Across 244 games for the Braves, he hit 29 home runs with a .714 OPS.

This season, it is the brother of Adonis Garcia who is the latest breakout player to take MLB by storm. Adolis Garcia’s timely and consistent hitting has been a big boost for the Rangers resurgence all season long, and once again played a big role in Texas clinching a spot in the 2023 World Series after an 11-3 win over the Astros in Game 7 of the ALCS. The rangers will now await the winner of the NLCS, which will be determined on Tuesday night in Game 7 between the Phillies and Diamondbacks.
