and the topps back:
garcia didn't play for the braves at all in 1987, as he was hampered with a knee injury.  he did return in 1988 for 21 games in which he hit just .117.  he was released, and the dodgers gave him a looksie before releasing him as well.  he caught on with the expos in 1989, becoming one of the fifty or so people to play for both canadian franchises.

voici à vous, 1987 damaso garcia!
