Past Fantasy Outlooks
Garcia represented a bright spot for a beleaguered Dodgers bullpen last year. His body of work included an impressive 10.8 K/9 and 1.6 BB/9, though an escalated home run rate served to drive up his ERA. Garcia suffered through an 11-game stretch in the middle of the season that saw his ERA balloon from 0.63 to 4.09, but he otherwise flashed signs of being a solid setup man one day, if not a closer. Garcia flashes a fastball in the 92-94 range, a slider, and an average changeup. In addition, Garcia handled lefties (.172 batting average against) even better than righties (.224) last year. Further developing those last two pitches will be key, but Garcia has shown enough to give the Dodgers hope that he will be around for a while. Garcia should enter spring training as a heavy favorite for one of the team's bullpen roles, though he may have to earn it.
Garcia earned a September callup after another impressive season in the upper levels of the Dodgers' system, where he was one of the team's best relievers at Triple-A Albuquerque. The Pacific Coast League is a difficult place to pitch, making his 3.10 ERA there all the more impressive. Garcia took a big step forward with his control in 2013 at Double-A, and was able to sustain that success in 2014. During his limited time in the big leagues, Garcia fanned 25.0% of the batters he faced and carried a tidy 2.8% walk rate while working predominantly with a fastball-slider combination. He'll likely be in the mix for an Opening Day bullpen spot this spring, but Garcia has minor league options left and may have to wait for injuries to deplete the team's depth before getting his second look from the Dodgers.
