Cardinals | Jaime Garcia stout again

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 20:28:01 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia allowed two hits and struck out five over seven scoreless innings in a win over the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, Aug. 8, lowering his ERA to 1.77.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) has been impressive all year when healthy, and while he doesn't strike out a lot of batters, he is still a great value at FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia activated

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 10:47:48 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, July 28, and the Cardinals optioned RP Sam Tuivailala to Class AAA Memphis in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) will make the start against the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday night. He's been a very adequate starter for fantasy owners this year, but sitting him tonight against the Reds might be wise, especially at FantasyScore. Cincy ranks eighth in baseball with a .722 OPS against left-handed pitchers this year.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia back next week

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 16:46:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is likely to come off the disabled list to face the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, July 28. SP Tim Cooney was optioned to Class AAA Memphis to clear a rotation spot for him.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) was pitching brilliantly and is 4-1 with a 3.22 ERA against the Reds since 2012. He's at a good price to be an SP2 on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia rehab update

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 12:38:57 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) said he expects to begin a minor league rehab assignment this week. He threw a bullpen session without experiencing any issues Saturday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: It's possible that Garcia ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) could only require one rehab start before being activated from the disabled list. Continue to stash him in all fantasy formats, although FantasyScore owners may want to see him make at least one start at the major league level before using him again.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia to throw Saturday

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 13:46:46 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) will face hitters in a batting practice session Saturday, July 18, and he must come out of that without setbacks in order to re-enter the starting rotation sometime next week.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) has been great for the Cardinals this year (1.69 ERA, 0.88 WHIP), and he'll definitely go right back into the rotation when he's healthy. Hang onto him in all formats.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia to the DL

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 18:59:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, July 5, with a groin injury.

Fantasy Tip: Tim Cooney will take Garcia's turn in the rotation and face the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, July 7. Cooney has made two previous starts this season, but he hasn't shown enough upside to be worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia on track for Tuesday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 21:16:09 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is on track to start against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, July 7.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) has had a few minor setbacks, and although there is some risk with starting any pitcher coming off an injury, taking a chance on Garcia and his 1.69 ERA could pay off.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia to throw side session

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:16:32 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is expected to throw a side session in the next two or three days. He had been scheduled to start against the San Diego Padres Thursday, July 2, but has been ruled out due to a strained left groin.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia's ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) injury affects him when he pushes off during his delivery. If all goes well during the side session, he could make a start against the Chicago Cubs next week. However, FantasyScore owners should avoid using him until he demonstrates that he is completely healthy. SP Tim Cooney is expected to be promoted from the minors to start Thursday, July 2, but is not a great FantasyScore option.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia unlikely against Padres

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:13:25 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is unlikely to start in the series against the San Diego Padres, but the Cardinals are hopeful that he'll avoid landing on the disabled list. The team expects him to start next week against the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) has been great this season in seven starts, sporting a 1.69 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 32 strikeouts in 48 innings. His injury isn't believed to be serious, but a matchup against the Cubs leaves plenty of risk for Garcia after missing a start.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia uncertain for Thursday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 22:21:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) has not thrown a bullpen session since a cramp in his groin last Wednesday, June 24. He is a question mark for his start Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Garcia ($7,100; or 14.2% of cap) in FantasyScore until he can officially make a start and pitch without any setbacks or lingering effects of his injury.
