Search news headlines with Jarlin Garcia’s name and most all of the recent hits say something along the lines of “Garcia pitches well, Marlins lose.”
Garcia has thrown 33 innings in 6 starts this season and allowed 4 earned runs; he has 1 win to show for it. Miami has given him minimal run support and the bullpen hasn’t been helpful, either.
That doesn’t deter from the fact that Garcia has been tremendous. He made close to 70 appearances out of the bullpen last season as a rookie because Miami didn’t have a single left relief pitcher.
His numbers weren’t great, partially because he struggled late in the season before eventually going on the DL with a sore arm. He was much more effective prior to hurting.
The Fish look to have a good one, though. It just pains to think of how good a 1-2 punch of Jose Fernandez and Jarlin Garcia could look at the top of a rotation, one from the right, the other from the left.
The Cubs have had a poor week. They lost two out of three to the Rockies at Wrigley and will try to avoid a sweep on Sunday afternoon in St. Louis.
Still, the Cubbies are over .500 having not yet played their best baseball in a National League that appears to be wide open.
Kyle Hendricks is the ace. He was a fifth starter when the Cubs won the World Series, and he enjoyed his best season ever in the process.
Now he’s the ace. He’s a perfectly fine ace. He’s got a 125 ERA+ and a WHIP less than 1.1, but it leaves you with the feeling that the Cubs just may not have enough pitching. The jury isn’t out and the front office will look to make another move, it is has to.
I think it will have to.
