2014

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.
