Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that Yankees outfield prospect Adonis Garcia has been diagnosed with a broken left wrist and will have surgery on Thursday. He suffered the injury Sunday while taking batting practice in Tampa.

It’s not clear how long the 27-year-old will be out.

Garcia, a Cuban defector, signed for $400,000 last spring and went on to bat .263/.311/.424 with five home runs in 57 games between High-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton. He was 4-for-10 (.400) with a walk, two runs and an RBI in this year’s Grapefruit League.

Garcia will probably report back to Double-A Trenton once he is recovered from this injury.

    And the hits just keep on coming…not that he was likely to make the cut anyway…but it is another theoretcal option off the table.

    He must have the wrong DNA. Is Tiger Blood on the banned substance list?

    This kid looked pretty good from what I saw of him this ST. Pity about the broken wrist. MLB would be so much better with an Adonis in its ranks. He’ll be up win the bigs soon enough, I bet.

      Realistically what are the chances of that? Let’s say he’s ready in 2 years. How many 29 year olds do you see breaking into the Bigs?
