- Jaime Garcia
Jaime Garcia is a player that seems to be very injury prone but when healthy can be great. After spending his first few seasons as a Cardinal Garcia will be joining the Braves in a contract year and everything to play for.
The biggest question mark for Garcia is going to be his health and if he can stay in the rotation for the Braves. If he can here are the projected numbers for Garcia.
Projected statline- 10-6 Record-3.46 ERA-165 Innings Pitched-137 K’s
Garcia is headed into the season with everything to play for considering his career worst season last year and the fact he is in a contract year. He is too talented of a pitcher to have another season as bad as last year if he is healthy.
The Braves are going to need Jaime Garcia to keep them in games if they hope to compete in 2017 considering the talent of the rest of the Braves’ rotation. The biggest downside for Garcia is that he does tend to give up homers at times and is not going to miss that many bats. He is a solid pitcher who should spend a full season in Atlanta in 2017 if he plays up to expectation.
