BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Garcia is a skinny Venezuelan second baseman who had a very nice year with the stick, posting a combined .305/.365/.441 line. A week after setting the Florida State League hitting-streak record at 37 games, he was called up to Double-A, but he experienced some struggles in Reading, so a repeat engagement is likely in order. Garcia has plus speed, the ability to play either second or third, and a promising bat, although since he's not in the power or patience business, his offensive production is overly tied into batting average. The usual caveats about the limited room for utility types of the non-shortstop persuasion on crowded rosters apply, but if he keeps hitting the Phillies will find a way to deal.
2010 Venezuelan Harold Garcia showed contact-hitting ability and speed in his full-season debut, doing all of his damage vs. RHPs (.321/.376/.467); of course, being a Phillies second-base prospect risks redefining "failure to launch."
