Freddy Garcia To Retire?

An article by posted on April 28, 2009

According to a recent post by Adam Rubin of the Daily News, starting pitcher Freddy Garcia is seriously contemplating retirement after another poor start at AAA Buffalo.

On Monday night, Garcia served up a grand slam to Ryan Langerhans in a six-run fifth inning after which he was pulled. Garcia was charged with seven runs and has an 8.18 ERA since joining the Bisons.

Garcia told the Buffalo News that he is contemplating pulling the plug on his career after one more start at Triple-A, which should come Saturday against Louisville.

“Maybe I want to try it one more time,” he told the newspaper. “If I don’t feel the way I’m supposed to be feeling right now, I don’t know. I have to make a decision what I’m going to do. I don’t know yet. Hopefully next time I’ll feel better. I want to wait for tomorrow and see how I feel. I’m working really hard to try to get right but my shoulder doesn’t respond. I’m going to try my best and work hard. If not, I guess I’ll go home. I don’t know. That’s it, man.”

Surprising… I thought he was going to be nice addition at some point this season.
