RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

In a strange twist, four surgeons looked at Garcia's shoulder and the only one not recommending surgery was Dr. James Andrews. It might be a tough offseason, but the Cardinals are hoping that Garcia will be ready by Opening Day. Garcia started just 20 games last year and appeared to decline a little in ERA and WHIP, but his strikeout rate stayed right at his career levels, and he continued to show a little improvement in his K:BB ratio. His .345 BABIP might have more to say about what looks like a disappointing season than anything else. He may not look it, but he's still trending up.

2012

Though his win-loss record and WHIP looked remarkably similar to his 2010 campaign, Garcia was far more hittable in 2011 than he was as a rookie. Part of that can be attributable to a bump in his BABIP and a drop in his strand rate, but it's possible that he just got tired out from an increased workload, as his second-half numbers (1.422 WHIP, .300 BAA) seem to indicate. On the other hand, his K:BB was an impeccable 156:50, so he learned to get by with other skills. Garcia is still just 25, and with Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright ahead of him in the rotation, he won't have to face the pressure of being the top dog...yet.

2011

Garcia didn't win the Rookie of the Year award, but he quietly put together a season that would have had him in the running most years, finishing with 13 wins, a 2.70 ERA (good for fourth in the NL) and 132 strikeouts in 163.1 innings. Not bad for a player who had Tommy John surgery in 2008. His WHIP was a mediocre 1.316, however, partially owed to his shaky walk rate (3.5 BB/9IP). He'll be third or fourth in the St. Louis rotation this year, and he could bust out even more as he’s still just 24.

2010

Garcia, once the top pitching prospect in the St. Louis organization, is still just 23, but with a 2008 Tommy John surgery already under his belt, he's not the can't-miss star he once was. He started eight games - including four with Triple-A Memphis - and still showed the nice strikeout rate he had pre-surgery. He could compete for a rotation job in St. Louis. If he can get the walk rate down to pre-surgery levels, we might have something here. Don't forget him on draft day.

2009

Going into last season, Garcia was the top pitching prospect in the Cardinals system. After breezing through six Double-A starts, things didn't go as well in Memphis, but he earned a promotion to the majors anyway. Unfortunately his season ended a month early with the announcement that he needed Tommy John surgery. He'll miss most -- if not all -- of 2009, but as he's only 22, he could bounce back nicely in 2010.

2008

The top pitching prospect in the Cardinals system, Garcia was shut down in July after experiencing elbow discomfort. While the elbow problems should be a red flag, the Cardinals were extra careful with Garcia's special arm, and he should start 2008 fresh. In just two professional seasons, the 20-year-old Garcia has started 40 games and has amassed a 3.51 ERA and a 217:75 K:BB ratio. He'll probably be back in Double-A Springfield this year, but he'll be competing for a spot in the St. Louis rotation as early as 2009, if not sooner.
