2014

Garcia's contract was purchased by the Cardinals in November to protect the 24-year-old shortstop from being selected in the Rule 5 draft. He's a career .281/.386/.384 minor league hitter with some speed and doubles power. He'll likely serve the Cardinals as a utility infielder and organizational depth, but Garcia could find a way to more consistent playing time if Jhonny Peralta has any injury problems as Pete Kozma has proved ineffective.
