Born: Dec 31, 1995 in El Paso, Texas USA
High School: Americas
College: Texas Tech
Ht.: 6'2" / Wt.: 190 lbs

Drafted in the 15th round (456th overall) by the San Francisco Giants in 2017 (signed for $125,000)
Unlike many of the college shortstops in this draft class, Garcia should keep seeing "six" written by his name on the lineup card in pro ball thanks to his short-area quickness, average arm strength and smooth infield actions. He's also very reliable--he made only four errors all season. At the plate, Garcia's not a washout either. He also has shown some pop, as evidenced by his 13 home runs this year. He has the potential for fringe-average power, although he does sell out some to get to that power.
