2013 Indians 38th round pick: RHP Justin Garcia

2013 Indians 38th round pick: RHP Justin Garcia

In the 38th round of the 2013 Draft the Cleveland Indians select right-handed pitcher Justin Garcia from Weatherford College (TX).

Born: 09/16/1992 - Height: 6'1" - Weight: 180 - Bats: Right - Throws: Right

Jeff Ellis: Garcia is a guy who has been used almost entirely out of the pen. He doesn't have a lot of velocity sitting in the 80's which is not a surprise as he is a bit smaller at six feet. He sits in the mid 80's with his fastball, and I am not sure if he has a lot of projection. He is a sophomore right now and is listed in consideration to some big name programs to transfer to so he might be a hard sign.

He's one of the greatest RHP I've seen play this year. He's been doing great things this season for the Cleveland Minor league association and is continuing to progress as a profession pitcher. It won't be long before this diamond in the rough will prove that even the smaller guys can make a huge impact in the MLB with a little passion and hard work!

Cut guys with FB 90-94 with 4 pitches and proven success, go figure.

And he was a starter this year. Not sure where you are getting your insight from.

He will sign. And he has usually been 88-91 this year.
