Garcia, Rays agree to terms of 1-year contract

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Avisail Garcia and the Tampa Bay Rays have agreed to terms on a one-year contract that would pay the former Chicago White Sox outfielder $3.5 million next season.

With incentives, the deal could be worth $6 million if the 27-year-old -- one season removed from being an AL All-Star -- rebounds from a disappointing 2018.

He can earn $250,000 each for 350, 400, 450, 500, 550 and 600 plate appearances, and $1 million for 650.

Garcia, who's coming off arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, hit a career-high 19 home runs last season but slumped to .236 with 49 RBI in 93 games after batting a career-best .330 with 18 homers and 80 RBI in 136 games in 2017, when he was an All-Star.

Garcia is a .271 career hitter with 76 home runs and 302 RBI over seven seasons with the White Sox and Detroit Tigers.
