RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Christian Garcia.

2013

Cut loose by the Yankees in 2010 after his second Tommy John surgery, the Nationals took a chance on Garcia and their gamble seems to have paid off. After a conversion to relief to try and save his arm, he tore through the high minors before making his major league debut in September and continuing his dominance, finishing 2012 with an aggregate 11.2 K/9 rate across three levels. His arsenal is almost Strasburg-esque, as he combines a nasty fastball that tops out at 97 mph with a mid-80s changeup and vicious slow curve, and while the Nats have plenty of established closer candidates already, it is hard to watch Garcia pitch and not see a ninth-inning role in his future, health permitting. Perhaps there will be some temptation for Washington to move him back into a rotation role, but given his injury history they are probably better served keeping him in the bullpen.

2010

Another year brought another injury for the perennially banged-up Garcia, who started just five games at Double-A before requiring surgery to remove a bone spur from his elbow. When he is healthy, however, he has demonstrated considerable upside. Relying primarily on a low-90s fastball, an outstanding curve and an improving changeup; he posted 98 strikeouts in 87.2 innings across Single-A and Double-A. Garcia will likely begin the 2010 season at Double-A and needs to prove that he can make more than a few starts in a row without succumbing to injury.

2009

The oft-injured Garcia spent most of 2008 at High-A Tampa in the rotation, where he had an impressive 60:17 K:BB ratio in 49.2 innings along with a 4-2 record over 10 starts. He has struggled with injuries throughout his career, but he's a definite sleeper to watch with a fastball that touches 95 mph and tough 12-to-6 curveball in his arsenal. He'll still just be 23 years old for most of the 2009 season and is likely to start at Double-A, so don't write him off if he's able to shake the injury bug.
