RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Garcia showed in the Appalachian League that his swing certainly packs a punch. Of course, that only occurred when he managed to make solid contact, and that didn't happen all that often. The 18-year-old posted a .454 slugging percentage, thanks largely to 13 home runs, but finished barely above the Mendoza Line for the season as he fanned 79 times. Garcia has already shifted from shortstop to third base, and with that move comes greater emphasis on the development of his bat. His primary area of focus in 2017 will be making more consistent contact at the dish, likely at Low-A to begin the season.
