RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Garcia broke camp as a utility player and filled that role for the entire season. He wound up playing every position except catcher and first base, but his lack of a viable bat prevented him from seeing extended playing time, even when regulars went down with injury. His best tool for fantasy purposes is his speed, but he will need to get on base more frequently to make it useable. Garcia will compete for a utility role in spring training, with the opportunity to see more time at second if he can bring the bat around.

2014

Garcia made the Rangers' Opening Day roster, but he quickly got crowded out once Jurickson Profar arrived and Ian Kinsler got healthy. Hence, it was no surprise he was the main piece sent to the White Sox to acquire Alex Rios. He spent the season's final six weeks as a utility player, frequently served as a defensive sub in the infield and outfield. Garcia's defense and wheels are by far his best tools, and it is unclear if he will ever hit well enough to use that second tool, but the defense alone could earn him a reserve role on the Sox in 2014, while his chances of seeing a more prominent role may hinge on the presence of Alexei Ramirez.

2013

Garcia is largely overshadowed by uber-prospect Jurickson Profar in the Texas system, and for good reason, but Garcia possesses major-league ready defense at a premium position and could be attractive trade bait if nothing else. Generously listed at 5-foot-7, Garcia's offense will be severely limited, but his slash-and-dash approach, combined with his glove, should get him a job as a utility infielder at the very least. He didn't have the bat knocked out of his hands at Double-A Frisco, racking up 12 doubles and 11 triples in 100 games, though he fanned 79 times. If he can learn to use his speed effectively from the batters box, there's a light-hitting, slick-fielding, stolen-base threat for a second division club needing a shortstop. It just won't be with Texas.
