2013 Indians 38th round pick: RHP Justin Garcia
June 9, 2013
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.
