Cardinals | Jaime Garcia on track for Tuesday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 21:16:09 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is on track to start against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, July 7.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) has had a few minor setbacks, and although there is some risk with starting any pitcher coming off an injury, taking a chance on Garcia and his 1.69 ERA could pay off.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia to throw side session

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:16:32 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is expected to throw a side session in the next two or three days. He had been scheduled to start against the San Diego Padres Thursday, July 2, but has been ruled out due to a strained left groin.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia's ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) injury affects him when he pushes off during his delivery. If all goes well during the side session, he could make a start against the Chicago Cubs next week. However, FantasyScore owners should avoid using him until he demonstrates that he is completely healthy. SP Tim Cooney is expected to be promoted from the minors to start Thursday, July 2, but is not a great FantasyScore option.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia unlikely against Padres

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:13:25 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is unlikely to start in the series against the San Diego Padres, but the Cardinals are hopeful that he'll avoid landing on the disabled list. The team expects him to start next week against the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) has been great this season in seven starts, sporting a 1.69 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 32 strikeouts in 48 innings. His injury isn't believed to be serious, but a matchup against the Cubs leaves plenty of risk for Garcia after missing a start.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia pushed back

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 14:49:55 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) won't start Tuesday, June 30, but could pitch Wednesday, July 1. The team could opt to skip his next start altogether.

Fantasy Tip: The team is treating the oft-injured lefty with kid gloves because he has become a vital part to their success. At $7,100 (14.2% of cap), he's a big risk in his next start with the gimpy groin.

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 18:19:54 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia is the probable starter for Thursday, June 18, against the Minnesota Twins. He has a 1-2 record in three June starts, but a stellar 1.23 ERA with 16 strikeouts over 22 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($7,100; or 14.2% of cap) hasnít been getting great run support, but he goes deep into games, doesnít allow many runs and posts decent strikeout totals. You canít ask for much more in FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia dethrones Royals

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 06:13:42 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia pitched eight scoreless innings with six strikeouts and just four hits against during the Cardinals' 4-0 win over the Kansas City Royals Friday, June 12. It was Garica's second win of the season.

Fantasy Tip: After pitching just 99 innings over the past two seasons due to injury and missing the beginning of 2015, it appears Garcia ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is back on the fantasy radar. His 0.89 WHIP and 2.90 FIP are solid indicators, and Garcia is averaging seven innings per start. He is a sneaky value in FantasyScore contests when facing a weak offense, and he warrants attention in deep mixed leagues.
