Career Transactions
Selected by Reds in 22nd round of 2011 draft; signed Aug. 15, 2011.
Garrett was a Division I basketball recruit (St. John’s) who didn’t even pitch in his senior year of high school, but the Reds took a chance, signed him and watched him blossom into an excellent starting pitching prospect. He gave up his basketball career in 2014.
What to Watch For
Garrett’s 90-95 mph fastball and above-average slider give him a way to attack lefthanded and righthanded hitters.
