Edgar Garcia
23-Year-Old PitcherRP
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Garcia was considered a relatively interesting relief prospect heading into 2019, to the extent that such things exist, though he didn't do much to back that up in his debut season. To be fair to the young righty, he was just 22 years old, but nothing about his 5.77 ERA or 6.57 FIP in 39 innings gives much reason to be excited about his future. His 26.2% strikeout rate was solidly above average, but his 15.1% walk rate and 2.54 HR/9 were both far too high. A 21.6% HR/FB rate suggests he was fairly unlucky, but he also failed to keep the ball on the ground, generating a low 32.0% groundball rate. Garcia's fastball and slider (which he threw 46.5% of the time) each received good grades from scouts, but he didn't do anything in his debut to disprove worries about his control. He'll have to cut his walk rate significantly if he's to push for a high-leverage role in the future. Read Past Outlooks

Yields one run in relief
PPhiladelphia Phillies
September 29, 2019
Garcia allowed one run on two hits with one strikeout across two innings during a relief appearance against the Marlins on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The Phillies elected to go with an opener and turn the season finale into a bullpen game. Garcia pitched as long as any Phillies pitcher in the loss. He finishes the season 2-0 with a 5.77 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 45 strikeouts in 39 innings.

Stat Review
How does Edgar Garcia compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
