Jose Barrero

23-Year-Old ShortstopSS
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Garcia made waves early in spring training with a two-homer game against the Angels and followed that up with a few more loud hits, exciting a fanbase eager to have some hope at shortstop. Alas, when he got the call with the Reds in August, essentially skipping two levels, he hit a paltry .194/.206/.194 in 68 plate appearances, striking out 26 times against just one walk. He'll probably begin 2021 in the minors, as he clearly needs more time to develop. Reds GM Nick Krall has suggested that they are looking to bring in a shorstop from outside the organization this offseason, as they currently only have Garcia and Kyle Farmer following the departure of Freddy Galvis.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Signed for $5 million out of Cuba in 2017, Garcia underwhelmed in his first season in the Reds organization but got his career on track in 2019. He was 31% better than the average Florida State League hitter by wRC+, registering a .358 wOBA in 452 plate appearances with 15 stolen bases in 17 attempts. He was 21 years old last season, and his performance at the next rung of the minor-league ladder -- at a more age-appropriate level -- will provide a better gauge of where Garcia stands in his development. There is not a lot of power here and his patience is lacking (5.5 BB% last season), but his bat-to-ball skills and speed make Garcia a player to keep an eye on. The Reds will need to add Garcia to the 40-man roster next winter for Rule 5 protection, and they may have a vacancy at shortstop in 2021.
