Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia goes seven strong in season debut
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/21/15) Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia had a solid season-debut in Thursday's loss to the Mets. Garcia, who had been out since the middle of last season with a shoulder injury, pitched seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits. He struck out three and walked five on the afternoon.
"We have had a couple starters in this spot throw close to 100 pitches and not get us out of the third or the fourth," manager Mike Matheny said, per MLB.com. "The fact that he was able to throw seven for us, that means that he was good, and he kept us in the game. Jaime's stuff looked right. It was good to have him back."
Garcia allowed an RBI single in the bottom of the fourth, and then was touched up for a solo home run by Lucas Duda in the sixth.
"I felt fine," Garcia said. "I didn't even know how many pitches I threw. I was just trying to compete and make pitches until they took me out of the game. It was as good as it can be."
His next start will likely be Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) The Cardinals officially activated pitcher Jaime Garcia (shoulder) from the disabled list ahead of his first start of the season on Thursday against the Mets. In a corresponding move, the Cardinals optioned right-hander Sam Tuivailala to Triple-A Memphis.
Garcia registered a 7.27 ERA in 8 2/3 innings of rehab work this season while on the shelf. He posted a 4.12 ERA in 43 2/3 innings last season.
St. Louis is an underdog (+100) at Citi Field, per VegasInsider.com.
Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia to make season debut Thursday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia will make his first start of the season on Thursday against the Mets, manager Mike Matheny announced on Sunday.
Garcia has been the beginning of the season the 15-day DL with a shoulder injury. He has made multiple rehab starts in Triple-A, posting a 7.27 ERA in 8 2/3 innings of work.
"He's been very clear that he's been feeling much stronger [than he did in Spring Training], and he has an ability to respond after he throws," general manager John Mozeliak said to MLB.com. "Getting his pitch count up was critical, but clearly, right now, we need someone to step up and take that fifth spot. He'll get that chance."
Garcia posted a 3-1 record with a 4.12 ERA in 43 2/3 innings of work in 2014.
Cardinals considering Jaime Garcia for Thursday start
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Sunday that the team hasn't decided who will start Thursday against the Mets, but he's leaning toward having Jaime Garcia make his season debut for that game, KMOX.com reports.
Garcia threw 93 pitches in six innings Friday and declared himself ready to be activated from the disabled list. He's working his way back from offseason shoulder surgery.
Cardinals' Jaime Garcia could be nearing return from DL
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) When asked if Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia (shoulder) would require one more rehab start before rejoining the big-league club, manager Mike Matheny said, "We'll see," per the St. Louis Post Dispatch on Saturday.
Garcia allowed two runs on six hits over six innings of work during a rehab outing in Double-A on Friday. He owns a 7.27 ERA through 8 2/3 minor-league rehab innings.
He joined the big-league clubhouse prior to Saturday's game against Detroit, and appeared encouraged by how he felt on Friday. Although he hasn't talked to Matheny about his next step, he indicated he's ready to be activated from the disabled list, per MLB.com.
"He had a smile on his face," Matheny said. "Excitement in his eye. He wants to pitch. It sounds like it was a good outing, everything was there. Now we'll see."
|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.
