CHRISTIAN GARCIA RUMORS

2012 Player-By-Player Wrap Up: Christian Garcia

Christian Garcia is the type of player that you want to see succeed, because he has a story. He’s had Tommy John surgery twice, which is a nail in the coffin for most pitches, but he’s shown some success following his second surgery. Garcia was called up to the big club in September with Zach Duke, and he is being groomed as a starter for the Nats now after a great September...

Could Christian Garcia Make The Postseason Roster?

A bit over half way through the season, I was covering a game at Nationals Park. Between innings, when the team does their Down on the Farm Report, they teased Christian Garcia’s minor league numbers. I knew of Garcia but didn’t really know his story or his stuff terribly well, so I did some reading and looked at some stats. The numbers almost looked like typos. They were that...

Christian Garcia: The Nationals’ K-Rod?

Nats Add To September Call Ups With Zach Duke, Christian Garcia

  The Washington Nationals made their second set of September call ups on Labor Day, acquiring the contracts for starter Zach Duke and reliever Christian Garcia. Both pitchers are certainly not in the prospect stages of their careers, but they both had seasons worthy of a call up.

Prospect Watch: Christian Garcia, Shaeffer Hall, and Zoilo Almonte

I made a trip out to Trenton this past Saturday for a rare 5:05 start to watch the Thunder play host to the Washington Nationals Double-A affiliate, Harrisburg Senators. Some seasons have seen Thunder manager Tony Franklin blessed with tremendous pitching staffs with zero hitting, and other seasons have seen him write in a tremendous lineup while wondering if his pitchers can limit...
