    Garcia has excelled in the closer's role at Miami for three years. He's full-bodied at 6-foot-1, 205 pounds, and he earns positive reviews for his competitive fire on the mound. His delivery starts with a calm, coordinated leg lift and a plunge in the back of his arm action. He fires through a three-quarter arm slot with plus arm speed and a clean finish, with his arm decelerating well as it comes across his body without recoil or head movement. He cuts off his front side and has a little bit of drop and drive to his delivery. Garcia's fastball regularly sits at 92-95 with life, and he shows the potential for a plus slider, which sits in the mid 80s with powerful bite and darting action from 10 to 4. He also throws a curveball and a changeup. Garcia's clean delivery and four-pitch mix could allow him to start at the next level, and the team that gets him may try to develop him as a starter. If he can't succeed in that role, Garcia has the stuff to be a solid middle- to late-inning reliever. He's Miami's all-time saves leader.
