RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Despite a rocket arm and a power bat, Garcia has seen his career stall out at the Triple-A level. The 24-year-old has put up back-to-back seasons hitting .246 and .245, respectively, for the Indianapolis Indians. He's compiled a 43:207 BB:K in those two seasons and unless he improves his plate discipline, it's unlikely he'll hit enough to make an impact in the majors. Garcia also suffered a power outage in 2016, totaling six homers in 499 plate appearances. He hit between 10-18 home runs in his each of his previous four seasons. Blessed with one of the best outfield arms in the organization, Garcia has a chance to become a backup outfielder.

2016

The 23-year-old has poked at least 15 homers in each of his last four minor-league seasons. What hes got in power, however, he lacks in plate discipline. Garcia posted a combined .275/.314/.431 slash line split between Double-A and Triple-A but struggled at the higher level his OPS fell from .794 to .704. In addition, his 123:23 K:BB ratio was actually his best in three years. Pittsburgh is bereft of power at the upper levels, guaranteeing Garcia will get an elongated opportunity to prove himself (and likely increase whatever trade value he offers), but the odds are against the all-or-nothing slugger.

2015

Garcia, 22, is a power-hitting outfield prospect who has averaged 17 home runs and 143 strikeouts over the last three seasons. He has been one of the league's younger players at each stop along the way. In 2014, Garcia hit .271/.311/.478 with 18 homers and 63 RBI in 474 plate appearances at Double-A. He's done well for his age, but the lack of contact (24:145 BB:K ratio) is troubling. At some point in 2015 he could see time at Triple-A, but that's only if he improves a bit with his contact ratios. Pittsburgh is set in the outfield at the major league level and has the likes of Austin Meadows ahead of Garcia in the minors, making it possible the team trades him for help in other areas.
