Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) may be bumped to Thursday
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(6/28/15) Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia, who was scratched from his upcoming start Tuesday due to a groin injury he suffered running the bases, may make his next start Thursday, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
However, there remains a chance that Garcia might not pitch until Saturday, as the Cardinals juggle their rotation. Garcia is 3-3 with a 1.69 ERA in seven starts this season.
Jaime Garcia scratched from Tuesday's start for Cardinals
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/27/15) Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia didn't throw his bullpen session as planned on Saturday, and he's been scratched from his scheduled start on Tuesday.
Garcia was forced to leave his previous start after injuring his groin running the bases.
Lance Lynn will make the start on Tuesday in Garcia's place, per the Belleville News Democrat.
Cardinals' Jaime Garcia on track for Tuesday's start, skipper says
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/25/15) Cardinals left-hander Jaime Garcia is currently set to stay on schedule and make his next start on Tuesday against the White Sox. Garcia was forced to leave his start on Wednesday when he suffered a groin cramp while running the bases.
"Today, it looked like a good report," manager Mike Matheny said prior to Thursday game, per MLB.com. "The trainers had him in the weight room just doing some light work on his legs, so that's a good sign. So we'll just continue to watch him day-by-day.
"At this point he's just going to try to stay on his normal program and if anything doesn't feel right, we'll back off."
Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia suffered groin injury in win over Marlins
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/25/15) Cardinals starting pitcher Jaime Garcia shut down the Marlins on Wednesday, but couldn't continue after suffering a groin injury while running the bases in the top of the eighth inning, per MLB.com.
"Something grabbed me there," Garcia said. "We'll see how it feels, and it should be OK, hopefully."
Garcia said he anticipates he will be able to make his next start. Manager Mike Matheny credited the injury to a cramp that happened earlier in the game and that Garcia didn't mention.
"He had a cramp and felt it apparently a couple innings before, when he was pitching, and failed to mention it," Matheny said.
Despite the injury, Garcia picked up his third win of the year after allowing just one earned run on 90 pitches.
"He was terrific," Matheny said. "He gave up a couple hard-hit balls -- obviously the one with Stanton -- but he really limited the damage. You could tell with the kind of ground balls that he was getting how much movement he had today."
Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia goes seven innings in win
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/24/15) Cardinals starting pitcher Jaime Garcia shut the Marlins down on Wednesday.
Garcia was impressive during his seven-inning, 90-pitch performance. He allowed just five hits and one earned run before being pulled from the game. His command was crisp as he struck out four batters and didn't allow a walk as he picked up his third win of the season.
Garcia (3-3) has a 1.69 ERA with 32 strikeouts and seven walks in 48 innings of work this season.
|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.
