Signed as an international free agent out of the Dominican Republic in 2011. Garcia has a mature arsenal for a 20-year-old, with three potential average or better offerings. Garcia lacks a true out pitch and he's not going to blow the fastball by anyone, but he has pitchability and feel on the mound. There is moderate risk due to limited experience against stronger competition.
