|(5/19/15) The Braves officially called up Cuban infielder/outfielder Adonis Garcia from Triple-A on Tuesday, giving the 30-year old his first-ever taste of the Major Leagues, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
“I want to thank God and the organization for being called up,” Garcia said through translator Eddie Perez, the Braves’ bullpen coach. “Ten years ago when I was in Cuba, my dream was to play in the big leagues. I left Cuba four years ago, so now I’m so happy to be here.”
The roster spot opened up Monday when the Braves placed Phil Gosselin (fractured thumb) on the 15-day disabled list.
Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Garcia would primarily serve as a pinch hitter while with the Braves.
This year was Garcia's 11th as a minor leaguer, posting a .306 career batting average.
