Yankees have asked to see Freddy Garcia’s medical recordsBy
From the please don’t let it be true department, Andrew Marchand says the Yankees have asked for Freddy Garcia‘s medical records, indicating their interest in the right-hander. Once upon a time Garcia was a brilliant workhorse starter, but that was several years and shoulder injuries ago. Last season with the White Sox, the 34-year-old pitched to a 4.77 FIP in 157 innings, striking out just 5.10 batters per nine innings and surrendering one homer for every 6.2 innings pitched. His fastball can’t even break a window these days.
I mean, I guess if it’s a really really low base salary ($1M or less), preferably on a minor league prove yourself in Spring Training deal, then I can live with it. All I know is that this movie will have a tragic ending.
