The market for free-agent outfielder Avisail Garcia is heating up.

The Milwaukee Brewers, Miami Marlins, and Tampa Bay Rays - Garcia's most recent club - are all pursuing the veteran, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network.

Garcia, 28, was an All-Star in 2017 with the Chicago White Sox when he hit .330 with a .885 OPS and 18 home runs in 136 games. Injuries have long been the scourge of his career since he debuted as a 21-year-old in 2012.

He became a fixture with the Rays in 2018 after signing a one-year, $3.5-million contract in January. He slashed .282/.332/.464 with a career-high 20 home runs.

The Brewers could be in the market for outfield help alongside Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich, or even as a right-handed complement to Ben Gamel.

The Marlins have also been linked to Yasiel Puig in recent days and appear motivated to add an outfielder.

A reunion with the Rays may be trickier with Austin Meadows, Kevin Kiermaier, and the newly added Hunter Renfroe and Yoshitomo Tsutsugo on the roster.
