Jaime Garcia – Starting Pitcher

2008 Season – St. Louis Cardinals

Tag: Jaime Garcia
Salary: $7
Contract: One Year, Two Remaining
Acquired: FAAB Acquisition, July 17, 2008 ($7 bid, Active)
Departed: Released September 16, 2008

Garcia was rated as the top starting pitching prospect for the Cardinals for the past two seasons (since the flameout of Anthony Reyes). 22nd-Round draft pick in 2005, and had dominating stuff in 2006, but has had some elbow problems in the past. Called up in mid-July to fill in a bullpen role, did well in a spot start, and bounced back and forth between St. Louis and AAA Memphis for most of August. Ended up having Tommy John surgery September 10th, and will miss all of 2009.
