Yimi Garcia

Injuries have struck Garcia down in what has been the best full season of his career to this point. The right-hander has experience in a variety of different relief-pitching roles over the course of his career, but he's really settled in as a high-leverage option that's more than capable of closing out games.

Garcia, 33, is a rental player who will be targeted by a plethora of teams hoping to contend for a playoff spot. He's made 27 appearances for the Blue Jays this year and has a smooth 2.57 ERA and equally impressive 2.88 FIP, as well as an ERA+ of 159. He notched five saves while Jordan Romano was on the shelf and has dramatically improved his K/9 and dramatically lowered his H/9 from 9.1 last year to 4.8 in the current campaign.

Despite the fact that he's a rental, Garcia is going to require a decent haul at the deadline. He can, and likely will, easily land the Jays a decent prospect or two in any moves made. His three-year tenure in Toronto hasn't always been smooth sailing, but he's really solidified himself as a dependable reliever that can always be counted on. He's good as gone.
