Deivi Garcia
21-Year-Old PitcherSP
2020 Fantasy Outlook
There was an excellent window to cash out Garcia when he was thriving at Double-A (37.0 K%) and there were whispers that he could make his big-league debut in the second half. However, after he predictably struggled as a 20-year-old at Triple-A, he is back to being properly valued in dynasty leagues. A fierce competitor who gets the most out of his stuff, Garcia has a plus low-to-mid-90s fastball, and his curveball and slider have rotated as his go-to strikeout offerings -- both pitches have plus potential. He also has an average fourth-pitch changeup. The big question with Garcia is whether he will be a starter or reliever. His BB% has been north of 11% at Double-A and Triple-A, and at 5-foot-9, 163 pounds, he is hardly built to handle a starter's workload. If his command improves at Triple-A, he could make his MLB debut in the rotation. If not, his stuff will clearly play in a multi-inning relief role. Read Past Outlooks

Picks up third win
PNew York Yankees
September 26, 2020
Garcia (3-2) struck out seven and earned the win Saturday against the Marlins after giving up four runs on seven hits and one walk over 6.2 innings.
ANALYSIS
The rookie right-hander gave up three runs on four hits during the third inning, but he otherwise did a good job of limiting the Marlins. Garcia has been an unexpected bright spot in the rotation for the Yankees this season, and he'll finish his rookie campaign with a 4.98 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 33:6 K:BB over 27.2 innings.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Yankees kept Garcia in extended spring training until early June, but once he was set loose, he dominated, climbing from Low-A to Double-A in the span of just 14 starts. He only logged 74 innings in his age-19 season, but if he had pitched enough to qualify, he would have led the Sally League (31.2%), Florida State League (24.8%) and Eastern League (29.4%) in K-BB%. Until he has success as a starter in the big leagues, there will always be an urge to peg him as a future reliever, given the right-hander's 5-foot-10, 163-pound frame. His fastball sits at 93-94 mph and he retires hitters with a 60-grade high-spin curveball. Garcia's changeup is still a work in progress, but it could develop into a viable third pitch. His demeanor on the mound is another mark in his favor -- he pitched with extreme confidence, despite being smaller (and younger) than almost every hitter he faced. He will be a quality big-league pitcher, but his eventual role is unclear.
