Jaime Garcia has rough outing Thursday night

Jaime Garcia pitched 4 1/3 innings Thursday night against the Giants allowing seven hits, six runs (all earned), and three walks while recording two strikeouts in an offensive shootout that ended in a 12-11 victory for the Braves and resulted in a no-decision for Garcia. He will pitch again next week against San Diego.

Fantasy Impact

Garcia has had two bad starts in a row so if you own him it might be time to sit him until he gets back on track.

Jaime Garcia stumbles Saturday

Jaime Garcia pitched 5 2/3 innings allowing seven hits, six runs (all earned), and two walks while recording seven strikeouts that resulted in a no-decision for him, but one where the Braves won with a 10th inning walk-off hit by a score of 8-7. He will pitch again Thursday against Matt Cain and the Giants in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

It was just a bad day at the office for Garcia, who has been very consistent this year. No issues with firing him up again in deep season-long leagues.

Jaime Garcia solid over seven Sunday

Jaime Garcia allowed seven hits and two runs (both earned) while walking two and striking out nine over seven innings Sunday in a losing effort against the Mets in Atlanta. Once again, he failed to get sufficient run support and with the 2-1 loss, his record sits at 2-5 on the year. He will pitch again Saturday against Jeff Locke and the Marlins in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Garcia should be considered for those in deeper leagues. He has been very consistent this year and has earned seven quality starts out of 12 games started. His ERA is a nifty 3.16 to go with a 1.23 WHIP. His wins are lacking because of poor run support and that should improve as the season rolls along.

Jaime Garcia solid but gets the loss against Phillies Tuesday night

Jaime Garcia allowed eight hits and three runs (all earned) while walking none and striking out four over 7 2/3 innings against the Phillies in Atlanta Tuesday night. Despite the solid effort, Atlanta's offense couldn't get much going against Aaron Nola, who had a spectacular night himself, and the Phillies won by a score 3-1, giving Garcia the loss and a 2-4 record on the season. He will pitch again Sunday against Seth Lugo and the Mets in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

His K/9 sits a shade under six, and his FIP sits at 4.29, but his ERA is a nifty 3.51 and he has earned six quality starts out of 11 opportunities. He is just a steady-eddy contributor that may not possess the most gifted fantasy appeal but should be on watch lists for possible future need.

Jaime Garcia solid over 6 2/3 against Giants

Jaime Garcia allowed four hits and no runs while walking two and striking out five over 6 2/3 innings Friday night against the Giants in San Francisco. He set the table for a nice shutout victory for the Braves, who won 2-0. With the win, Garcia's record improves to 2-3 on the year. He will pitch again Wednesday against Jesse Chavez and the Angels in Anaheim.

Fantasy Impact

This was such a great effort by a guy who doesn't get much love in the fantasy world. But smart players always keep tabs on pitchers who can help them if the need arises. The case for Garcia is for deeper leagues and the back-end of fantasy rotations. He's not doing bad and in fact, is demonstrating strong consistency in his recent outings. The case against him is that he doesn't pitch deep into games (that's improving) and he sports an anemic K/9 (6.18) to go with an elevated BB/9 of 3.90. But he is improving considerably and is worth keeping an eye on for those back-end spots that have a fair turnover rate.
