TCN Blog 2015 Top Story #15: Jaime Garcia’s Comeback

If I was Jaime Garcia, I would request a recount. The St. Louis Chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America announced that the 29-year-old left-hander is sharing the team’s 2015 Bauman Physical Comeback Award with fellow starting pitcher Adam Wainwright*. While Wainwright is indisputably the team’s ace and mounted an inspirational early in-season return from an...

Cardinals: Bring back Jaime Garcia or cut him loose?

Jeff Curry / USA Today Sports One of the juiciest questions heading into the offseason for the St. Louis Cardinals is deciding what to do with embattled, tricky and all together maddening lefthanded starter Jaime Garcia. He’s brilliant when healthy, but that last part is becoming a relative idea that isn’t easy to hold in one spot. Does Jaime’s effectiveness on the mound make...

Jaime Garcia Pitching to Contact with Ace Stuff

Pitching to contact is a much-maligned, sometimes misunderstood philosophy. Inducing contact results in a hit 30% of the time while a runner can reach base on a strikeout only on the rare wild pitch or passed ball. The strikeout is a considerably better outcome, but attacking hitters and getting strike one, the philosophy espoused by Dave Duncan, can combine strikeouts, weak contact...

Cardinals: Enjoy Jaime Garcia while you can

One of the most bittersweet feelings in Cardinal Nation is watching St. Louis Cardinals’ lefthander Jaime Garcia work. When healthy, the man is a top of the rotation starter. He gobbles innings up and makes hitters unintentionally reinvent their swing at home plate. It’s ugly for the opposition when Garcia is on his game and the Cards thrive on it. In the midst of a rotation...

Frustration? Yeah, and then some as Garcia goes under the knife again

ST. LOUIS -- The sad career of Cardinals left-hander Jaime Garcia took another unfortunate turn Tuesday when the team said he would undergo his third season-ending surgery. And yes, "sad" is as fair a word as any to describe the left-hander's career over the past three years. Well, the past two years and 51 weeks, anyway. It was on July 13, 2011, that Garcia signed a $27 million...

The Jaime Garcia Injury Drama Has Boiled Over

In a season that has an unexpected amount of on-field tumult, frustrations have crept outside the lines and boiled over into the media. “Do I sound frustrated? Do I look frustrated? I am frustrated.” That’s a John Mozeliak quote from Joe Strauss’ column today in the Post-Dispatch. He’s specifically talking about Jaime Garcia’s decision to end his season by undergoing...

Jaime Garcia set to return to Cardinals rotation and other notes

Tyler Lyons was placed on the 15-day DL today, one day after getting roughed up by the Cubs.  While that is an interesting move (considering that Mike Matheny left him in the game long enough to give up 9 runs in 4 innings), what is more interesting is who might replace him in the rotation...Jaime Garcia.Garcia pitched 5 innings on Monday for AAA Memphis, giving up just 2 runs on...
