The right-hander, going on an extra day of rest, will be looking to give the Yankees a solid performance after Friday night's 7-6 Yankee victory.
Opposing Garcia will be rookie Drew Smyly, who is making his fourth career start.
Andy Pettitte will likely be returning very soon, and either Garcia or Phil Hughes will be getting the bump from the rotation.
Every start counts for both pitchers at this point in the season—the one who shows the least promise by the time Pettitte is ready will be given the hook.
Garcia can keep himself in the rotation with a quality start against the Tigers, but it won't be an easy task.The Tigers boast a very powerful lineup and their biggest star, Miguel Cabrera, has fantastic career numbers against Garcia.
