Cardinals | Jaime Garcia to throw sim game

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 22:26:14 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a simulated game Saturday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is still far from a return, and when he is able to re-join the big club there are no guarantees he will have a rotation spot waiting.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia tosses 25 pitches

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:01:15 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) threw 25 pitches against live batters Friday, April 17. His first simulated game is more than a week away.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is a long way from fantasy relevancy at this point, and he may not return to the starting rotation, either. Continue to monitor his recovery and check on his return timeline. Just don't bank on any fantasy returns. Garcia has only pitched 99 innings over the past two seasons and his 3.82 ERA and 7.5 K/9 aren't stats worth stashing him for.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia throws bullpen

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 07:40:24 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Sunday, April 12, without limitations, and will do so again Wednesday, April 15. He could advance to live batting practice Friday, April 17. Garcia will have to prove his health and ability to extend his pitch count. "One, it's recovery," general manager John Mozeliak said. "I would also say it's volume, meaning, as you saw in spring training, when Jaime was throwing he seemed to do very well when he was in that 30- to 40- pitch range. But as he started to expand (that's) when things got a little more difficult for him." "I still think his goal is to try to get back as a starter and that's how he wants us to push him," Mozeliak said. "I think it would be very difficult to take that (six- or seven-day availability) application to the major-league level. But having the ability to modify his routine right now and try to get him to a point where he could contribute at the major-league level would be our goal."

Fantasy Tip: Garcia's shoulder has had issues bouncing back quickly enough for the bullpen to be a viable option. The Cardinals are motivated to add a left-hander to their all-righty rotation, but Carlos Martinez impressed in his first start. It's possible they shift Martinez to the bullpen in the second half to avoid his innings cap, but Garcia has a lot to prove before that becomes an option. Continue monitoring his progress.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia resumes throwing

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 05:51:44 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) has resumed a throwing program at the team's complex in Jupiter, Fla. He could be back on the mound in two weeks, and the team could open discussions about a rehab assignment then.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($3,700, 7.4% of your cap) is worth watching for future usage on FantasyScore at a dirt cheap price.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia to open on DL

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 10:23:48 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation Monday, March 30.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia's injury setback is good news for Carlos Martinez ($5,600, 11.2% of cap), who is now all but assured a spot in the starting rotation. Martinez becomes an even sneakier late-round acquisition to round out your fake pitching staff. His upside remains high, and his strikeout numbers could be on the rise with an added pitch this year.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia has arm fatigue

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 04:42:13 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (arm) was diagnosed with arm fatigue following a setback on Saturday, March 28. Garcia looks like he will miss the opening week of the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: And with that go his chances to make the rotation as a fifth starter, at least for now. Garcia will have some role with the team moving forward, either as an eventual No. 5 starter or something else. For now, keep an eye on either Carlos Martinez or Marco Gonzales for the fifth spot and knock Garcia down a couple pegs on your draft board.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia suffers setback

Sat, 28 Mar 2015 14:05:08 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) was scratched from his start Sunday, March 29, before of discomfort in his problematic left shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: This pretty much opens the door for Carlos Martinez ($5,600, 11.2% of your cap) as the No. 5 starter. Martinez is at a FantasyScore price that yields a lot of upside if he can figure out his issues getting through the order a second and third time. Garcia will likely begin the season on the DL and could re-emerge later in the year.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia in line for No. 5?

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 11:37:33 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) threw 80 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday, March 24. Garcia is on a schedule that lines him up to be the fifth starter exiting spring training. Manager Mike Matheny acknowledged the team entered camp envisioning Garcia opening the season on the disabled list to prove his health. Garcia said with each passing day of spring he feels less concerned about his arm and more confident that he can get fatigued and still get outs.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia has had shoulder problems for three years, but he pitched well at times in spite of them. At $3,700 (7.4% of your cap), Garcia is well worth consideration for a cheap flyer on FantasyScore if his name is called.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia impressing front office

Sat, 21 Mar 2015 04:55:46 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia has impressed many critics in his battle for the fifth-starter job. "I didn't know what to expect from him frankly, and everything we've seen has been very surprising. And very positive," general manager John Mozeliak said.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Garcia makes the roster be wary, because he does have a history of arm issues. Still, he has pitched well enough to be considered in the mid to late rounds of most fantasy leagues.
