by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) Recently released pitcher Freddy Garcia has received a handful of minor-league offers since being released by the Braves, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports Thursday. Heyman specifically named the Rangers as one team that has reached out to Garcia, however the veteran is holding out for a major-league deal as he works out in Miami.

Garcia appeared in 17 games with the Orioles and Braves a year ago, putting up a 4.37 in 80 1/3 innings. He failed to break camp with the Braves after posting a 4.76 ERA in five starts in the spring.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
