Padres | Freddy Garcia struggles

San Diego Padres SP Freddy Garcia saw his rotation chances take a hit in his Cactus League spring outing Sunday, March 17, as he was hammered for six earned runs and six hits over a spring-high five innings. "I think he got into trouble when he got some balls up in the strike zone," manager Bud Black said. However, the skipper said Garcia showed "good secondary pitches."

Fantasy Tip: Garcia has a spring ERA of 9.77 and isn't helping his chances of winning a rotation job. He could be a used in long relief if he doesn't win a starting job, but right now he is looking like a fantasy option only in the deepest of NL-only leagues.
