2022 Player Outlook
Garcia put together a pretty decent resume in 2021 with the Cardinals. In 33.1 innings of work he had 34 strikeouts, a 3.24 ERA, two saves and 11 holds. Now he comes over to the Padres who are looking to replace Mark Melancon’s production from a year ago. Garcia will compete with Pierce Johnson and Emilio Pagan for the role of the Closer in this bullpen.
