Garcia was relatively well known in high school in South Florida, spurning the Cardinals as a 20th-round pick, and has been a three-year starter at Florida International. He didn't quite show the present hitting ability to go out higher out of high school and has made steady progress under FIU coach Turtle Thomas, who produced big league catchers such as Charles Johnson and Jorge Febregas in his days as an assistant at Miami. Garcia was limited in the Cape Cod League to two games by a knee problem but has thrived this spring, walking more, striking out less and maintaining an all-fields approach while leading Conference USA in batting, on-base percentage and slugging through the first week in May. He has present strength and a mature approach at the plate and profiles as an offensive backstop. Garcia's bat is ahead of his defense, as his footwork remains problematic and his blocking needs work. He has average arm strength and had thrown out 28 percent of opposing basestealers.
