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

September 2, 2020
Garcia was optioned to the alternate training site after Wednesday's win over the Yankees, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The 23-year-old was acquired by the Rays from the Phillies in mid-August and joined the big-league roster shortly after the trade. Garcia allowed four runs on three hits with one strikeout and four walks over 3.1 innings while recording one save and two holds.

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.
