WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Garcia signed at age 20 in 2019.  He throws from a low three-quarters angle, with a fastball in the low- to mid-90s and a sweeping slider.

2019
DSL:  1-0-1, 3.97 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, 11.1 IP, 4.0 BB/9, 11.9 K/9

Garcia had a brief debut, making six relief appearances.  He did miss a lot of bats.

DNP

2021
R:  4-2-2, 2.73 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, 33.0 IP, 2.5 BB/9, 12.0 K/9

Pitching in long relief in the FCL, Garcia had an impressive season, putting up a high K rate and holding opponents to a .188 average.  He improved steadily during the season.

2022
A:  3-3-0, 5.76 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, 45.1 IP, 5.6 BB/9, 8.9 K/0

At Bradenton, Garcia wasn’t nearly as effective as the previous year.  Walks were a big problem, he didn’t miss as many bats, and he got scored upon in seven of his last 11 outings.

If the Pirates move Garcia up, the home run haven at Greensboro could be a tough environment.
