Mets Release Freddy Garcia
After a terrible spring and a couple of dismal starts at AAA-Buffalo, the Mets have cut their losses and released starting pitcher Freddy Garcia.
Garcia was initially viewed as the favorite to win the fifth starter’s job in spring training, after signing a one year minor league deal with the Mets. However, Garcia never regained the velocity or control that once made him a top starting pitcher in the American league.
Officially, he ends his Mets professional career with an 0-2 record and an 8.18 E.R.A. for Buffalo, including a disastrous outing on Monday, when he gave up seven runs in five innings against Syracuse.
After that start, Garcia told the Buffalo News that he was contemplating retirement. He’ll have more free time to think things over now.
