The sad story of Christian Garcia

Christian Garcia received rave reviews from MLB Fanhouse scout Frankie Piliere in late March, comparing his curveball to A.J. Burnett’s. Unfortunately, you probably won’t be hearing about him again this year.

Since 2006, Garcia has made a mere 32 appearances due to multiple significant injuries. In five starts with Trenton last year, he compiled a 0.71 ERA.

In his 2010 debut with Trenton, he left the game in the sixth inning after 69 pitches with an apparent arm injury. He had tossed 5 2-3 shutout frames and allowed just two hits and a walk.

An MRI revealed yesterday he tore an elbow ligament, leaving his status uncertain for the year. The full details of the injury and timetable for his return have yet to be reported, but it really, really doesn’t sound good.
