Rico Garcia - SP COL


Recommended Posts

Ranked as #21 of the top 30 Prospects for the Rockies, this guy has been lights out this season. Granted he's old for AA at 25, was drafted in the 30th round in the 2016 draft, and is undersized...he's currently leading the Eastern League in all three pitching triple crown cats. with 8 wins, 1.88 ERA, and 85 strikeouts over 67 IP this season. Does anyone have any thoughts on this guy? Just a future relief pitcher that happens to be doing very well at the moment, or is he someone we can see actually pitching 185-200 innings a year?

In a deep league sure. But almost nobody pitches 185-200 IP. He's 5'11", 25, and in Colorado's system as a pitcher. Seems pretty easy for me to fade this guy. Would have to be a pretty deep prospect league to consider.  The BB/K is nice and he did pitch 167 IP last year, so, he's at least interesting. Don't know much about him though.

He doesn't look to have a truly special pitch. The fastball looks average. I think in order to have success in the higher levels he has to have great command and control. I see a future long relief guy here, especially in Colorado.
