RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Garcia saw just 14 at-bats for the Cardinals in 2014, serving as a bat off the bench and not much else. He'll probably return to Triple-A Memphis for the Cardinals as a utility infielder in 2015.

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.
