2020 Fantasy Outlook
There was an excellent window to cash out Garcia when he was thriving at Double-A (37.0 K%) and there were whispers that he could make his big-league debut in the second half. However, after he predictably struggled as a 20-year-old at Triple-A, he is back to being properly valued in dynasty leagues. A fierce competitor who gets the most out of his stuff, Garcia has a plus low-to-mid-90s fastball, and his curveball and slider have rotated as his go-to strikeout offerings -- both pitches have plus potential. He also has an average fourth-pitch changeup. The big question with Garcia is whether he will be a starter or reliever. His BB% has been north of 11% at Double-A and Triple-A, and at 5-foot-9, 163 pounds, he is hardly built to handle a starter's workload. If his command improves at Triple-A, he could make his MLB debut in the rotation. If not, his stuff will clearly play in a multi-inning relief role. Read Past Outlooks

Sent to minors
PNew York Yankees  AA
March 26, 2020
Garcia was optioned to Double-A Trenton on Thursday.
It's little surprise that Garcia was sent to the minor leagues, especially after he surrendered six earned runs in 7.1 innings of Grapefruit League action. However, he also flashed upside in that same span, punching out eight batters and walking just two. Given that Garcia ended the 2019 season in Triple-A, his time in Trenton should be short-lived.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Yankees kept Garcia in extended spring training until early June, but once he was set loose, he dominated, climbing from Low-A to Double-A in the span of just 14 starts. He only logged 74 innings in his age-19 season, but if he had pitched enough to qualify, he would have led the Sally League (31.2%), Florida State League (24.8%) and Eastern League (29.4%) in K-BB%. Until he has success as a starter in the big leagues, there will always be an urge to peg him as a future reliever, given the right-hander's 5-foot-10, 163-pound frame. His fastball sits at 93-94 mph and he retires hitters with a 60-grade high-spin curveball. Garcia's changeup is still a work in progress, but it could develop into a viable third pitch. His demeanor on the mound is another mark in his favor -- he pitched with extreme confidence, despite being smaller (and younger) than almost every hitter he faced. He will be a quality big-league pitcher, but his eventual role is unclear.
