Jaime Garcia struggled in his 2014 debut Sunday as he allowed four runs on five hits, including two home runs, with no walks and five strikeouts over seven innings in the no-decision versus the Braves.
Sunday's outing should not have come as too much of a surprise considering Garcia had struggled in his last two rehab outings, before being cleared to return to the Cardinals rotation, as he had allowed a home run and two runs in each of them. Garcia will surely improve as he shakes off the rust making him worth a stash in deeper mixed-leagues, and his next start looks appealing as he will face a Reds team on Saturday in Cincinnati who will be without their top two hitters in Joey Votto and Jay Bruce.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Trevor Cahill has secured the final spot in the Diamondbacks' rotation.
With this news, it is confirmed that Daniel Hudson will start the season out of the team's bullpen. Cahill really struggled last season, but the team believes his revamped mechanics will equate to better success this season. In 17 starts and 14 relief appearances last year, he compiled a rough 5.61 ERA. Starters in Arizona will likely be back-end starters in many fantasy rotations this season. Analysis: Colby Conway
