St. Louis Cardinals: What Happens To Jaime Garcia?

The hottest topic in St. Louis Cardinals’ spring training is the 5th spot in the rotation. Who gets it? Who keeps it? Who should not get it? Going into the New Year, Carlos Martinez was slotted for the opportunity. Shelby Miller was traded and Martinez started in the Winter League. John Mozeliak was high on the kid and Mike Matheny had bonded with Carlos in the aftermath of Oscar...

The ‘Trade Jaime Garcia’ Bandwagon Has Left The Barn

As we outlined yesterday, the Cardinals starting rotation options are more bountiful than anticipated. With Marco Gonzales and Carlos Martinez cost-controlled for the near future and Jaime Garcia sticking the Cardinals with a 9.25M tab for services rendered in 2015, I assumed that Garcia would be called to the trading block sooner than later. This AM on ‘The Morning After’, it...

St Louis Cardinals: Garcia best fit for the rotation?

Jaime Garcia started his second Spring Training game of 2015 on Thursday, throwing 4 excellent innings of 2-hit ball, allowing just 1 earned run with 1 walk and 5 strikeouts. Garcia followed good starts by the 2 men he is in competition with for the Cardinals 5th and final starting spot in the rotation in Carlos Martinez and Marco Gonzales. Garcia bounced back from a less-than-stellar...

Buffa’s Bullets: Jaime Garcia Starts His Trek

Good morning readers,As the coffee brews, keep this in mind. In exactly one month, the Cards play their first day game of the season at Wrigley Field against the Cubs. The regular season is that close. While spring training action unfolds(hey the Cards are 2-1, who cares), all I can do is wait for real games to start. I am a little pessimistic when it comes to spring action. It...

What if Jaime Garcia Is Healthy?

I want to take a moment and use my platform here at Cardinals Farm to indulge in my own personal fantasy. If you will, suspend your disbelief and imagine that the Cardinals’ pitching staff has made it all the way through spring training without an injury.That’s right: in our fantasy world the throwing arms of Adam Wainwright, Michael Wacha, John Lackey, Lance Lynn, Carlos Martinez...

What should the St. Louis Cardinals do with Jaime Garcia?

For St. Louis Cardinals fans, the bitter sting of last October’s defeat has almost worn off (or maybe not, I can’t speak for everyone). With spring training just around the corner, most have turned their attention from the bitter finish of 2014, and toward the season ahead. With a handful of offseason additions in the rear-view, the newest St. Louis Cardinals (including Jason...

Jaime Garcia: Secret Weapon or Ultimate Liability

I picture myself as Jaime Garcia some days. I wake up and wonder what I should think about all this offseason starting pitching trade talk swirling around my team, the St. Louis Cardinals. I wonder if I should be worried or possibly find  a pitching mound and kneel down and pull a Tebow. What is my spot on this team in 2015? Where do I belong? What do fans think? What does my general...

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...

St. Louis Cardinals: More questions about Jaime Garcia’s healthIn recent years a common theme during spring training for the St. Louis Cardinals has been major injuries.  This year appears no different as pitcher Jaime Garcia left spring training in Jupiter to go back to St. Louis for tests on his sore shoulder and Garcia injuries are becoming an annual tradition of their own...

St. Louis Cardinals have pitching depth, but Jaime Garcia still vital to starting rotation

The St. Louis Cardinals have as much, and in many cases more, talent on their pitching staff than any team in Major League Baseball, but a pitcher who missed the final four months of the 2013 season could still be a key factor in how the staff looks in 2014. Lefthanded starting pitcher Jaime Garcia was 5-2 with a 3.58 earned-run average through nine starts into mid-May when he finally...
