Braves Garcia returning to Braves on Minor League deal

Quote:
Freddy Garcia will once again have a chance to make the most of the same opportunity the Braves gave him last year.

Multiple sources have confirmed that the Braves have given Garcia a Minor League contract and an invitation to participate in their Major League Spring Training. The club has yet to confirm the deal. The addition of the 37-year-old right-handed pitcher gives Atlanta some much-needed big league-ready organizational depth in the starting-pitching department.

After signing a Minor League deal with the Braves in late August, Garcia joined Atlanta's bullpen in early September and quickly earned a spot in the rotation. As he allowed just four runs and worked 19 2/3 innings during three regular-season starts, he gave the club enough confidence to use him in a must-win matchup against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers in Game 4 of the National League Division Series.

Playing the role of David, Garcia held his own against Goliath and exited after six innings with the game tied at 2. He was actually in line to be credited with a win after the Braves went ahead in the seventh, but Juan Uribe hit his game-winning and series-clinching home run against David Carpenter in the eighth inning.
