WHO TO GET? (Part 6 - Do You Rush Him?)

WARNING… He is only 20 years-old

WARNING… He began the year in Single-A and just got promoted to AAA last weekend after the Futures Game.

In the Futures Game, against Triple-A batters, Garcia retired the side in order.

In 68 2/3 innings in 2019 (across A and AA), Garcia has 114 strikeouts.

He’s not ready…

He can’t be ready…

Don’t rush him. Don’t rush him….

But the temptation!

If Garcia has a bunch of great starts for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, who knows what could happen?

One thing is certain, Deivi Garcia is an untouchable. As the Yankees look to make a splash in the trade market, they must hold strong and state that Deivi does not get traded. I don’t think he’s the answer in 2019 (as tempting as it might be), but he could be a HUGE piece in 2020 and beyond.
