Est. Return 9/21/2021
2021 Fantasy Outlook
The 29-year-old has appeared in 42 big-league games over the past two seasons, hitting .214 with three home runs and nine RBI during that time. He's trying to stick in the majors after mashing at Triple-A in his age 26 and 27 seasons (2018-19), hitting 40 home runs with a .900 OPS over 178 games. Garlick is competing for a final spot in the outfield with the Twins. He's a long shot, but the Twins may need a right-handed bat on the bench with so many left-handed hitting outfielders (Alex Kirilloff, Jake Cave, Luis Arraez and Max Kepler) on the roster. More likely he'll need to go through waivers if sent to Triple-A, so a strong spring could win him a reserve role with another major league team. Read Past Outlooks

Garlick (groin) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.
ANALYSIS
The Twins announced Thursday that Garlick will undergo surgery to repair his sports hernia, so his move to the 60-day IL doesn't come as a major surprise. Whether the 29-year-old is able to return this season remains to be seen. Jake Cave (back) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list.
