2023 Fantasy Outlook
Garcia registered his second straight solid season with nearly identical surface stats. His WHIP was a tad lower due to a small dip in walk rate and a fortunate .260 BABIP. However, Garcia's ERA inched up as a result of a few more homers and a drop in strikeout rate. His xFIP and SIERA were almost the same in both seasons, suggesting the small differences were variance. There was some hope the Astros would tweak Garcia's five-pitch mix to help him achieve the next level. They still may, but at least last season Garcia's arsenal remained unchanged, with his cutter and slider doing most of the heavy lifting. Still just 26-years-old, there is time for Garcia to take the next step, even if it's just upping the 28 starts he's registered each of the past two seasons and pitching a little deeper, adding some frames onto last season's career high 157.1. The mid rotation floor is stable, with the potential of more. Read Past Outlooks
