Scouting Report

Scouting Grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 60 | Changeup: 40 | Control: 45 | Overall: 40

Signed for just $30,000 in May 2014, Garcia has moved slowly through the Phillies' system pitching largely in relief, but often being given a chance to start to see if his three-pitch mix could work in a rotation. A full-time move to the bullpen allowed him to reach Triple-A for the first time, and he was rewarded with a spot on the 40-man roster in the offseason.

Garcia's fastball-slider combination works extremely well in shorter stints out of the bullpen. With a live arm and athletic delivery, Garcia will throw his fastball in the 92-95 mph range and touches a tick higher regularly. He routinely misses bats with his slider, which flashes plus. His changeup was a work in progress, but as a short reliever, it's possible he can be just a two-pitch pitcher, though that would limit his value.

The right-hander won't need pinpoint command, though he'll have to continue to be around the strike zone consistently. If he can do that, and develop his changeup to be a weapon against a lefty, he could pitch late in games in Philadelphia soon.
