When Rob Segedin had a locker in Dodger Stadium on Sunday, Yimi Garcia did not for the first time all year.

Garcia hasn’t pitched for the Dodgers since developing soreness in his right biceps on April 22 in Colorado. He made six minor league rehab appearances in July, none since he experienced a setback on July 29.

Sunday, manager Dave Roberts said the setback is expected to cost Garcia the rest of the season.

Yimi Garcia has setback in biceps rehab.

Dodgers pitcher Yimi Garcia had a setback in his rehab from a right biceps injury, manager Dave Roberts said.

The issue is with one of Garcia’s knees.

“He’s still in rehab,” Roberts said. “I don’t know the next time he’s going to pitch.”

Garcia pitched on back-to-back days Thursday and Friday for the first time since joining the Double-A Tulsa roster this week. He allowed three runs in one-third of an inning Thursday and one run in one inning Friday.

The 25-year-old right-hander was placed on the 60-day disabled list April 23.

Dodgers pitcher Yimi Garcia was cleared to throw off a mound this week in Arizona.

Garcia is on the 60-day disabled list with soreness in his right biceps. The right-hander hasn’t pitched for the Dodgers in more than two months (April 22 was his last appearance), and he wasn’t able to throw at all for most of that time.

But Garcia made enough progress in June to begin a throwing program, and now he’s throwing off a mound. There is no hard timetable for his return.

TORONTO — Yimi Garcia will not be in Los Angeles when the Dodgers return home to play the New York Mets on Monday.

The pitcher, on the 15-day disabled list with numbness in his right biceps muscle, has transferred his rehab to Arizona.

“He has not picked up a baseball yet,” manager Dave Roberts said.

Garcia hasn’t pitched since April 22, when two of the four batters he faced in Colorado reached base before he was forced to leave the game.
