Garcia, 40, played for seven teams during his 10-year MLB career, including the Yankees, Mets, Orioles, Dodgers, Indians, Tigers and Diamondbacks. He is known for being beaned by Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez in the 2003 ALCS, which lead to the infamous bench-clearing brawl in which Martinez slammed 72-year-old Yankees bench coach Don Zimmer to the ground.

Garcia last played in the majors in 2004 with Baltimore, and has played professionally in Korea, Japan and Mexico over the past 12 years.
