RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Garcia failed to win a bullpen spot last spring after spending the 2015 season as a key member of the Phillies' bullpen. He spent most of last season at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, with occasional trips to the majors when the Phils needed a fresh arm in their bullpen. Garcia has strikeout stuff, but his issue has been, and remains, his inability to command his pitches. His walk rate is much too high for him to be an effective reliever in the majors. Now 30, Garcia is unlikely to suddenly figure out how to lower his walk rate. He will likely get future opportunities thanks to his excellent groundball rate, but he is best used in lower-leverage spots.

2016

Garcia spent his first full season in the majors last year as a 28-year-old. He had been up and down between Triple-A and the majors the past few seasons primarily because of his difficulties commanding his stuff. Walks continued to be an issue for Garcia last season, but he was able to work around them thanks to a solid strikeout rate and an excellent groundball rate. He finished the year working as the primary setup option to closer Ken Giles and will likely open the year back in that role, even with Giles shipped to Houston.

2015

Garcia was outstanding for Triple-A Lehigh Valley last season with a 0.96 ERA and a 52:16 K:BB ratio in 46.2 innings. Unfortunately, his success did not translate to the majors when he was given an opportunity. His command abandoned him and he walked 13 in just 14 innings with the Phillies. He had similar problems when he was given a look in 2013 as well. Garcia's mid-90s fastball makes him intriguing, but until he shows he can command it in the majors he will be seen as nothing more than a Quad-A reliever.

2014

Garcia was a surprise addition to the Phillies' bullpen last season. The 27-year-old righty spent 2012 playing in an independent league and was pitching well as he worked his way up the ladder in the Phillies' minor league system last year when he got the call to the majors in July. Garcia has a mid-90s fastball that he complements with a slider and cutter. His 3.73 ERA with the Phillies looks good, but his 23:23 K:BB ratio in 31.1 innings is a major red flag. If Garcia wants to have any chance of sticking in the majors, the walk rate will have to come down significantly. He'll get an opportunity to compete for a middle relief job this spring.
