One More Venezuelan

Posted by Bob Biscigliano in

When the Detroit Tigers announced that they had signed Freddy Garcia to a minor league deal there was not that much BUZZ surrounding it. I guess being 10+ games out of first place and a severe shoulder surgery that has kept the player out of the league for over a year can do that to a story. Well, tonight Freddy Garcia will be joining the already heavy Tigers' Venezuelan contingent and making his first start since his June 8 of last year (when he was with the Phillies). Before last season, Garcia threw over 200 IP since 2001 (the year he won 18 games with the Mariners) and in 2005, he was an instrumental pitcher for the White Sox when they won the World Series (gag). Despite having a surgery that many believe he can not recover from and return to be a more than adequate pitcher in the MLB, I'm somewhat excited to see what he can do for the Tigers with some fellow country-mates. Unfortunately, his debut with the team comes in September when the Tigers are 14 GB of first place and mathematically eliminated from the playoffs (gag). Game time begins right meow so watch it and get back to me with your thoughts about how he did against a normally, pretty good Texas lineup.
