GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers have two pitchers in camp named Garcia and both are hurt.

Right-handed prospect Yimi Garcia has been sidelined with a sore right knee and the club is awaiting test results. The 23-year-old was protected from the Rule 5 Draft after being a Southern League All-Star with a system-leading 19 saves. He also pitched in the Arizona Fall League.

Meanwhile, left-hander Onelki Garcia is throwing on flat ground as he continues to recover from two surgeries -- a left elbow procedure to remove a spur in November and arthroscopic surgery to repair torn left knee cartilage last month.

The 24-year-old Cuban, who pitched only one professional game in 2012, raced through the system last year with 25 games at Double-A Chattanooga, 10 games at Triple-A Albuquerque and three games with the Dodgers.
