Garcia had a good run with the Halos! 

Ha, yeah, just posted essentially the same thing.

Honestly, I'm mildly surprised they're wasting 40-man space on either of these guys, but I guess this just goes to show that they have no problem shifting guys off and on it as needed.

"Save for a 10-day stretch in early August when he was optioned to the alternate training site, Jack Mayfield spent the season serving as a reserve infielder for the Astros, playing sporadically. When he saw action, Mayfield struggled, fanning at a 29.8% clip while walking only 4.3% of the time. The power Mayfield flashed in 2019 with Triple-A Round Rock disappeared with the lively ball as he managed just one extra-base hit, a double, in 42 trips to the dish."

That said, the guy did post these numbers in AAA in 2019 in Round Rock for the Astros.

This is probably just the Angels trying to improve their AAA depth.

They brought in Mayfield and DFA'd Garcia, hoping that Garcia can clear waivers and they can stash him in AAA and outside of their 40-man roster. Then, in a couple weeks, they may even DFA Mayfield and hope he clears waivers in order to stash him in AAA and off the 40-man roster.

You're seeing lots of teams do this right now.

I expected someone to state that this guy is the piece....

When you say "barely" you mean "we're not even on the second page, right?"
