|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/17/14) Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia will throw in an extended spring training game Saturday in Jupiter, as he continues to recover from bursitis in his left shoulder. According to MLB.com, Garcia is set to throw about 35 pitches in his first game action.
|Jaime Garcia ready for live BP, extended spring games |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/16/14) Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Wednesday starting pitcher Jaime Garcia (shoulder) will advance to throwing live batting practice this week, per MLB.com. He will then progress to extended spring training games later this week.
|Jaime Garcia placed on the disabled list |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(3/30/14) Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Garcia hada setback in his recovery from shoulder surgery, and will need more time to rehab. The move is retroactive to March 21, but it's unclear when Garcia will return to action. He'll likely need a rehab assignment before he rejoins the club's rotation.
|Jaime Garcia throws bullpen session Sunday |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(3/23/14) Cardinals starting pitcher Jaime Garcia (shoulder) threw 25 fastballs during a bullpen session Sunday, per MLB.com. Garcia will throw several more bullpen sessions before facing hitters in extended spring training.
Garcia, who will begin the season on the disabled list, will likely need a rehab assignment before joining the Cardinals' roster.
"I'm going to be ready to go whenever that time is," Garcia said. "I'm very, very confident I'm going to be good to go. When is that going to be? I haven't really talked to the trainers. But I'm hoping as soon as possible."
|Jaime Garcia plays catch Friday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/14/14) Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia played catch from a distance of 60 feet Friday, MLB.com reports.
It was Garcia's first time throwing since Feb. 18 as he continued to recover from left shoulder bursitis. He said earlier this week that he's aiming to return to the mound by the end of March.
|Including his rookie 2010 campaign, Jaime Garcia has only once made 30 starts in a season. His production has remained steady during that time -- in four years, he has maintained an ERA around 3.50, a WHIP around 1.30 and a strikeout rate around 7.2 per nine innings -- but over the last two years in particular, he hasn't taken the mound enough for Fantasy owners to get much out of it. Now, he faces his greatest hurdle yet: shoulder surgery. He had his labrum and rotator cuff repaired in May and couldn't pitch this spring because of continued inflammation. Not every pitcher bounces back from shoulder surgery. Most lose something in the way of velocity. At age 27, Garcia has time on his side, and he pitched effectively with the injury over nine starts in 2013, which suggests he has the will to overcome it. Considering he wasn't exactly an ace before it, though, most Fantasy owners will probably decide he isn't worth the trouble, especially since his timetable is unknown as of now. You might reserve a DL spot for him in an NL-only league, but that's it.
