WTM’S PLAYER PROFILE
|Garcia got a modest bonus when he signed and profiles as a line drive hitter. He’s not speedy and lacks a strong arm, so he’ll be limited to a corner.
Garcia didn’t hit a great deal in his debut and had an extremely high K rate.
Garcia’s average didn’t go up, but he hit for more power and his walk and K rates were sharply improved. He had a good August, with a 244/380/415 line.
Garcia was invited to fall instructionals in 2017 and should be in the GCL in 2018.
