Cardinals pleased with Jaime Garcia's progress
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|

Garcia is recovering from surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome.
Cardinals' Jaime Garcia backtracks on 'starting pitcher' declaration
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/21/15) Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia clarified his recent comments, telling reporters now that he's preparing to be a starter, but is open to any role on the staff, per MLB.com.
"My point wasn't to come in here and say, 'If I'm not a starting pitcher, I'm not going to go to the bullpen,'" Garcia said. "I never meant for it to sound like that.
"What I meant to say is that I prepare myself to be [a starter], but I'm coming here to compete and win a spot on the team. If it comes down to being something else besides a starting pitcher, then I'll be happy to do that.
"I've never [pitched in relief] in my life. That's my point. I didn't prepare this offseason to be a bullpen guy or be a closer. I prepared myself to be a starting pitcher, get my pitch count up. But obviously coming in here, I'm trying to earn a spot to pitch in the Major Leagues in April. I want to let my work out there do the talking. That was my whole point."
Garcia had surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome in July, and was able to get through a normal offseason. He's not expected to have any restrictions this spring.
Cardinals' Jaime Garcia: 'I'm a starting pitcher'
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia is hoping to return to the rotation this season, according to MLB.com.
Injuries have limited Garcia to just 16 starts in the majors over the past two seasons, but he's ready to ramp things up in 2015. Garcia had surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome in July, but always knew he would return strong from the injury. "There was never one doubt in my mind that I was going to come back from this really tough surgery and really tough injury that has ended careers in the past," Garcia said. "I knew it was going to be a tough challenge."
Due to Garcia's past injuries, the Cardinals will head into the season with Garcia tentatively penciled in as a starter. He's expected to compete with Carlos Martinez and Marco Gonzales for the fifth spot in the team's rotation.
Garcia was able to get through a normal offseason, and expects to have no restrictions during spring training. He's entering the final year of his contract, and is owed $9.25 million this season. Garcia's contract does contain some team options, but whether they get picked up will likely depend on his health moving forward.
Cardinals' Mozeliak: Reports 'extraordinarily positive' on Garcia
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/17/15) Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak described recent reports on the progress of pitcher Jaime Garcia in rehab are "extraordinarily positive" Saturday, MLB.com reports.
Garcia had season-ending surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome in July. If the pitcher can continue to progress without suffering any setbacks, he may be able to compete for a rotation spot this spring. Garcia would presumably be battling for the fifth spot in the rotation behind Adam Wainwright, Michael Wacha, Lance Lynn and John Lackey.
Cardinals remove Shane Robinson, Jaime Garcia from DL
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(11/1/14) The Cardinals have removed outfielder Shane Robinson and pitcher Jaime Garcia from the 60-day disabled list.
Robinson underwent shoulder surgery in August. He's expected to be ready for spring training. Garcia had surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome in July.
|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, but he may be out of them now with Carlos Martinez looking to break into the rotation as the fifth starter. Spring training will be big for both pitchers.
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.
