Minnesota reportedly would send Atlanta only minor league talent in the deal.
Analysis: The left-hander is 3-7 with a 4.33 ERA in 17 starts this season, his first with the Braves after spending eight seasons in St. Louis.

Garcia struck out five, ending the game with a 4.55 ERA and 1.35 WHIP on the season.
