Last year, the 24-year-old was a non-roster invitee in his first camp, making solid first impressions but with no realistic chance of making the big-league. This time around, Garcia holds a precious 40-man roster spot, but the signing of Jhonny Peralta and Mark Ellis means the left-handed hitter will most likely need to return to Memphis.
In the following interview, The Cardinal Nation's 20th-ranked prospect recaps his last year. Following spring training, injuries and a slow start were eventually overcome by a strong finish to 2013. Garcia is also performing well when called upon here in 2014 camp.
