Drafted in the 20th round (629th overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2012
Named the most outstanding player of the Big 12 Conference tournament after hitting .500 and leading Missouri to a surprising title, Garcia usually makes his mark with his glove. He has a live 5-foot-11, 175-pound body to go with sure hands and a solid arm. He did make 21 errors in his first 58 games this season, many early in the spring when he tried to do too much. He sometimes falls into the same trap as a hitter, spinning off the ball in an attempt to produce power. Scouts question how much he'll hit, though he does generate some backspin from both sides of the plate and has a knack for drawing walks. He's an average runner.
