Cardinals' Jaime Garcia shines in simulated game Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia threw 80 pitches in five "innings" of work in a simulated game Tuesday, with the team keeping him on the mound even after he recorded three outs in an inning to push his pitch count and test his shoulder, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
"I think in those 80 pitches he might have recorded 48 outs," manager Mike Matheny said.
Garcia threw in the simulated game Tuesday to keep him on track to open the season as the team's fifth starter if the Cardinals decide he doesn't need extended work in spring training once the season begins. He was initially expected to open the season on the disabled list but could begin the season in the rotation if the team selects him as the winner of the fifth-starter competition and believes he's ready to roll at the start of spring.
Garcia said after Tuesday's outing that he's further removed from concern with the surgically-repaired shoulder with each passing day.
"I feel better and better each time out," Garcia said.
Cardinals' Jaime Garcia strikes out seven in loss to Mets
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia had an up-and-down outing, throwing seven strikeouts while giving up two runs in Thursday's 7-2 loss to the Mets.
Garcia's first run surrendered came in the first inning, with John Mayberry bringing in Daniel Murphy on a sacrifice. The second run came in the third with Wilmer Flores hitting a solo home run.
Garcia struck out two batters in each of the first, second and fourth innings. Garcia also walked five batters and walked a batter.
Though Garcia had some solid moments, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny wasn't pleased with his team's overall performance.
"It was awful today. That was just ugly," Matheny said, via MLB.com. "Spring Training or not, we have to look better than that. It was just a dead atmosphere all the way around. It was the first we've seen of that. … That won't happen again. "
Cardinals' Jaime Garcia turns in four solid innings in first spring start
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/12/15) Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia put together a solid outing Thursday afternoon against the Orioles, turning four strong innings in his first start of the spring. He allowed one run on two hits and one walk while striking out five. Of his 50 pitches, 32 were called strikes.
Garcia had thoracic outlet syndrome surgery last year, and is seeking a bounce-back campaign in 2015.
"Getting through four innings, especially after it was a little rough (in the first), is good," Garcia said, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I got some work done. I'm not focused or concerned on results, as long as everything else is going."
Cardinals' Jaime Garcia scheduled to start Thursday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/9/15) Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia will receive at least one more spring start, as he's scheduled to face the Orioles Thursday, MLB.com reports.
Garcia pitched Saturday for the first time since June 20 and struggled, throwing less than half of his pitches for strikes and surrendering one run in 1 1/3 innings. He missed the second half of 2014 after undergoing thoracic outlet syndrome surgery.
Jaime Garcia struggles in return to mound for Cardinals
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/7/15) Cardinals LHP Jaime Garcia returned to the mound on Saturday for the first time since June 20.
Garcia missed the second half of the 2014 season after having surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome.
Garcia struggled with his control on Saturday, throwing just 20 strikes in 41 pitches over 1.1 innings. He gave up three hits, a walk and a run, while striking out one.
"Every time you take the mound, no matter what, Spring Training game or regular-season game, there is always excitement and there is always that adrenaline going," Garcia said afterward. "And after going through that thing that I went through, it was a big deal. There's always excitement, but at the same time, I felt good. I was able to control my emotions, get the first one out of the way. Now I've got to get ready for the next one."
|2014 summary: You've heard it all before. After spending months rehabilitating his shoulder, Jaime Garcia regained his rightful spot in the starting rotation and looked as if he hadn't missed any time at all ... for a few weeks, anyway. Then, it was back to the DL with another shoulder flareup, this one requiring surgery. It was his fifth trip to the DL for a shoulder injury in the last three years and his second surgery during that time.|
Playing time status: With all the shoulder troubles, Garcia has made only 16 starts over the last two years and 36 over the last three, yet miraculously, his performance has remained steady during that time. Because he's signed through 2015, the Cardinals have given him every opportunity to bounce back, and he looks like he may be on the verge of securing a rotation spot with a strong performance this spring. Up-and-comer Carlos Martinez is also in the mix, however.
2015 outlook: This latest procedure for Garcia involved removing a rib to relieve pressure on the nerves in his shoulder area. The hope is it'll eliminate some of the more troublesome symptoms he's had over the years, such as numbness in his pitching hand. Still, you'd have to be a real optimist to take a flier on him at this point. In a best-case scenario, he's capable of Derek Holland-like numbers, but again, you've heard it all before.
