JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Miami Marlins have announced that outfielder Avisaíl García has been assigned to Jacksonville to begin an injury rehabilitation assignment, presented by H2 Health. García is expected to join the Jumbo Shrimp on Tuesday prior to the club's 7:05 p.m. against the Durham Bulls from 121 Financial Ballpark.

García was placed on the injured list on April 28 with a left hamstring strain. He's in the third year of a four-year contract with Miami that was signed in December 2021. In three seasons with Miami, García has played in 153 games, slashing .217/.260/.322/.582 with 13 home runs and 49 RBIs.

After being signed as a non-drafted free agent out of Anaco, Venezuela by Detroit in 2007, García made his major league debut for the Tigers on August 31, 2012 against the Chicago White Sox. A career .266/.320/.422/.742 hitter with 134 home runs and 505 RBIs in 1,039 games, the 31-year-old has played 11 seasons in the major leagues with Detroit, the Chicago White Sox, Tampa Bay Rays, Milwaukee Brewers and Miami.
