The latest Freddy Garcia MLB and fantasy baseball news

The Baltimore Orioles are listing SPs Kevin Gausman, Chris Tillman, Freddy Garcia and Miguel Gonzalez as their four probable starting pitchers for the four-game series against the Boston Red Sox starting Thursday, June 13.
Tue, 11 Jun 2013 18:31:45 -0700
Baltimore Orioles SP Freddy Garcia needs just five more strikeouts to reach 1,600 for his career, becoming just the 155th pitcher in major league history to accomplish that feat.

Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen (oblique) is up to 90 feet and is pain-free during his throwing program. SP Jair Jurrjens (thumb) is unlikely to make his next start for Triple-A Norfolk. SP Tsuyoshi Wada (elbow) had his "best stuff outing" for Norfolk Thursday, June 6, and he saw a slight uptick in his fastball velocity.
Fantasy Tip: The O's won't rush Chen or Wada back into the starting rotation anytime soon. But when they're ready and if Baltimore wants them in the starting rotation, Freddy Garcia and Kevin Gausman may be the most vulnerable to lose a spot.

Baltimore Orioles SP Jake Arrieta will pitch out of the bullpen for now, but SP Freddy Garcia will have to pitch well to remain in the rotation, meaning there's a chance Arrieta will return to a starting role.
Fantasy Tip: If Arrieta receives another crack at a rotation spot, he should initially only be a candidate for a pick-up in AL-only leagues. We'll need to see that his work in the minors paid off before trusting him to a mixed league roster spot.

Baltimore Orioles SP Jair Jurrjens could be called up from Triple-A Norfolk to join the rotation with SPs Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) and Wei-Yin Chen (oblique) injured. Jurrjens allowed five runs and seven hits while walking none and striking out six in seven innings for Norfolk Monday, May 13. Manager Buck Showalter is deciding between SPs Freddy Garcia and Jason Hammel for Wednesday, May 15, against the San Diego Padres. Chen could start Saturday, May 18, but SP Steven Johnson could be recalled if Chen needs to go on the disabled list. Jurrjens could opt out of his contract June 15.
Fantasy Tip: 2012 was an atrocious season for Jurrjens, and his injuries didn't help him at all. Baltimore may decide to opt for Jurrjens over Johnson if they need an extra starter because of Jurrjen's opt out date approaching. Jurrjens hasn't impressed in the minors, though, so don't expect much from him if he's recalled. He'll strictly be AL-only rotation fodder if you're desperate.
