RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Garcia's 2016 season was very similar to his 2015 showing, albeit with some small improvements. After nearly cracking the Opening Day roster, the super-utility player spent the bulk of the year with Triple-A Charlotte, improving his slash line from the year prior. He even posted a career-high seven percent walk rate while continuing to strike out less than 20 percent of the time. This performance earned him another September callup, and although his .229 batting line seems less than impressive, the reality is that he performed well enough on the defensive side of things that he managed to garner a sizable amount of playing time at the end of the season. That being said, until Garcia can consistently hit at the major league level, he will likely remain merely a utility player.

2016

Garcia spent the majority of 2014 in a utility role for the White Sox, but he spent nearly all of 2015 in the same role for Triple-A Charlotte where he played every position except first base and catcher. At the plate, Garcia remains a weak-contact, low-strikeout batter with a stolen-base prowess that has yet to translate to the majors. He should contend for a utility role in camp, but it is more than likely he spends a good amount of time back at Charlotte.

2015

Garcia broke camp as a utility player and filled that role for the entire season. He wound up playing every position except catcher and first base, but his lack of a viable bat prevented him from seeing extended playing time, even when regulars went down with injury. His best tool for fantasy purposes is his speed, but he will need to get on base more frequently to make it useable. Garcia will compete for a utility role in spring training, with the opportunity to see more time at second if he can bring the bat around.

2014

Garcia made the Rangers' Opening Day roster, but he quickly got crowded out once Jurickson Profar arrived and Ian Kinsler got healthy. Hence, it was no surprise he was the main piece sent to the White Sox to acquire Alex Rios. He spent the season's final six weeks as a utility player, frequently served as a defensive sub in the infield and outfield. Garcia's defense and wheels are by far his best tools, and it is unclear if he will ever hit well enough to use that second tool, but the defense alone could earn him a reserve role on the Sox in 2014, while his chances of seeing a more prominent role may hinge on the presence of Alexei Ramirez.

2013

Garcia is largely overshadowed by uber-prospect Jurickson Profar in the Texas system, and for good reason, but Garcia possesses major-league ready defense at a premium position and could be attractive trade bait if nothing else. Generously listed at 5-foot-7, Garcia's offense will be severely limited, but his slash-and-dash approach, combined with his glove, should get him a job as a utility infielder at the very least. He didn't have the bat knocked out of his hands at Double-A Frisco, racking up 12 doubles and 11 triples in 100 games, though he fanned 79 times. If he can learn to use his speed effectively from the batters box, there's a light-hitting, slick-fielding, stolen-base threat for a second division club needing a shortstop. It just won't be with Texas.
