Bryan Garcia
26-Year-Old PitcherRP
2021 Fantasy Outlook
With Joe Jimenez struggling last season, Garcia went on to grab four saves, good for second on the team, potentially setting himself up as the closer in Detroit heading into 2021. While Garcia produced a stellar 1.66 ERA in 21.2 innings, the rest of his statline doesn't paint nearly as impressive of a picture. His 10.8 BB% was poor, though his 12.9 K% was considerably worse. It's not as if he was keeping the ball on the ground at a high clip, either, as his 43.5% groundball rate was roughly average. Garcia owns a modest 23.3 K% at the Triple-A level, so a dramatic increase in whiffs probably isn't coming. His ERA simply came over too small of a sample to believe that he'll keep dramatically outperforming his peripherals, so he'll be a low-tier closer even if he has a clear hold on the job to open 2021, as there's a good chance he won't be able to keep it.

Notches second save
PDetroit Tigers
April 14, 2021
Garcia worked around a walk to pitch a scoreless inning and record the save in Wednesday's win over the Astros. He struck out two.
ANALYSIS
Garcia earned his second save of the season in as many chances, which leads the team, and he had to work for it. He entered the game with the bases loaded and no outs in the ninth inning following a poor showing from Jose Cisnero, but he managed to only allow a single run as the Tigers escaped with the 6-4 win. Gregory Soto is the only other Detroit player with a save this season, and he was asked to navigate through the heart of the Houston order in the eighth. All three pitchers seem to be in the mix for saves at this point, but Garcia could earn more opportunities if he continues to excel in tough spots.
