Yimi joined the Dodgers’ team out of spring practice in 2015 and earned his first career win on April 13th, when he threw a spotless top of the 10th inning and was given the win when Alex Guerrero hit a bases-loaded single with two outs in the bottom of the frame.
When Howie Kendrick hit a two-run single off Fernando Rodney in the bottom of the 9th inning the next day, he made it two wins in two nights.
On April 24th, in a 3-0 win over the San Diego Padres, he made his first major league save.
From June 7 to September 28th, his penultimate start of the season, he went 33 innings without allowing a walk, a major league record.
On October 4th, he did walk one batter and concluded the season with a 3-5 record, 3.34 ERA, 1 save, and a K/W ratio of 68/10 in 56 2/3 innings.
He pitched in the postseason for the first time that season, pitching one shutout inning in Game 3 of the Division Series against the New York Mets.
Garcia missed the whole 2017 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery following the 2016 season.
After Walker Buehler had started a game against the San Diego Padres by holding them hitless for six innings and Tony Cingrani had followed with another hitless inning on May 4, he pitched a hitless eighth inning for the Dodgers.
