Born in San Rafael, Mendoza, García began his senior career with Club Atlético Banfield, making his competitive debut on 3 June 2007 against Gimnasia y Esgrima de Jujuy, coming on as an 85th-minute substitute in a 1–0 away win. He made his first start for the club two weeks later, in a 0–3 defeat at Club Atlético Belgrano.
García scored his first goal for Banfield in a 2–1 home win against Newell's Old Boys on 7 November 2008. During the 2009 Apertura tournament he only made a few appearances, but made an important contribution by netting twice in a 3–0 home win against reigning champions Club Atlético Vélez Sársfield on 14 November, as El Taladro won the first national championship in its history in the final day of the season.
