Cardinals | Jaime Garcia making progress

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 14:57:13 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia has been making good progress in his comeback from thoracic outlet syndrome.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia has been dogged by injuries for the past couple seasons, but he might be on the right track. Still, keep an eye on his progress. Garcia should be watched closely in mixed and NL leagues, but his draft status has definitely taken a hit in recent months.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia says he's a starter

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 11:23:59 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) is adamant that he is a starting pitcher. However, he's made just 16 starts in the last two seasons and thrown less than 100 innings because of injuries. Garcia had left shoulder surgery last year, specifically to address thoracic outlet syndrome. He is coming into spring training on a normal schedule, though, and he'll compete with SPs Carlos Martinez and Marco Gonzales for the final rotation spot.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia's surgery last year was a significant one, and one that is typically tough to rebound from. We don't suggest taking a chance on Garcia in standard 12-team leagues unless he wins the final rotation spot, and that's a big if. Consider him an NL-only target as a cheap investment for now.

Cardinals | Carlos Martinez has struggled as SP

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 14:51:29 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez, who is competing for a starting rotation spot this year with SPs Jaime Garcia and Marco Gonzales, has allowed opponents to hit .301 against him with a 1.70 WHIP in eight career starts. As a reliever, Martinez has a .255 batting average against and 1.28 WHIP. Opponents hit .435 against him the third time through the lineup when he was starting. Garcia has been limited to 36 starts since 2011 due to various injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez presents an excellent buying opportunity in the late rounds of mixed leagues before he's won the rotation spot. He has the most upside of the trio and best raw stuff. But as Cassavell mentions, Martinez will need to alter his approach as a starter in order to change those numbers in a small sample size.

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 13:11:07 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia's (shoulder) recovery timetable from thoracic outlet syndrome remains fluid, and the team likely won't know until spring training whether he can be a factor on opening day.

Cardinals | Joe Kelly activated

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 11:39:41 -0700

The St. Louis Cardinals activated SP Joe Kelly (hamstring) from the disabled list Friday, July 11, and optioned SP Tyler Lyons to Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move. Also, SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) was moved to the 60-day DL.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly will make the start tonight against the reeling Milwaukee Brewers. Kelly has a chance to stick in the rotation for a while after the injuries to Michael Wacha and Jaime Garcia. He's worth a look in deep mixed leagues.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia will have surgery

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 15:42:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) will have surgery Friday, July 11, to address a thoracic outlet symptom.

Fantasy Tip: At this stage, Garcia's shoulder issues have become chronic, and this surgery should end his season. Unless things change, Joe Kelly will be the beneficiary within the rotation going forward. However, it is no secret the Cardinals are searching for options through the trade market to replace Garcia, and potentially fill in for the injured Michael Wacha.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia out for season

Sat, 05 Jul 2014 13:23:06 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) will have surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome and miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia can be dropped in all leagues. Don't forget his name on draft day next season as he could be a nice bargain at the end of your drafts if he is healthy.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia effective

Sun, 25 May 2014 07:55:33 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia struck out seven and gave up two runs in 5 2/3 innings in his win over the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia was unhittable through the first four innings but ran into trouble in the fifth inning, which has always seemed to be his M.O. He looked strong and should be considered for a pickup in mixed leagues.
