The Miami Marlins placed outfielder Avisail Garcia on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with back tightness

Garcia, 31, is batting .188 with three home runs and eight RBIs through 22 games this season.

A 2017 All-Star, he is a career .264 hitter with 138 homers and 518 RBIs in 1,071 games with five teams.
