Outfielder Jonathan Garcia has tools, allowing him to look like a stud in workouts, but he struggles in game action. He's undersized at 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds but has a hose--the second-best arm on the island to Sierra. In February, he put on a show in batting practice, hitting light-tower home runs, then looked awful against live pitching, swinging and missing at everything. He wasn't good at the Excellence Tournament, either. He's naturally strong, hustles and plays the game the right way. He's also a tough player who doesn't wear batting gloves and will run through a wall in the outfield.
