      Cardinals' Jaime Garcia: $11 million team option will be exercised

      Garcia's representatives were informed that the Cardinals will assume his $11 million option, Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. After going four straight years without an ERA below 3.50, Garcia was able to put up an excellent season when it mattered. The left-hander registered a 2.43 ERA and 1.046 WHIP in 129.2 innings for 2015, making his 2016 option's price tag acceptable. It's not very reasonable to expect as good a season next year, but Garcia at least figures to begin that year entrenched in the rotation.

      Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia exited Game 2 with stomach virus

      Cardinals starting pitcher Jaime Garcia left Game 2 of the National League Division Series with a stomach virus. Garcia made it through just two innings, giving up five runs (zero earned) on four hits and a walk, so it seemed natural that his exit was performance based. However, it seems as if Garcia was suffering from a minor illness as well as a damaged ego.

      St. Louis Cardinals' Jaime Garcia Will start Game 2 of NLDS

      Garcia will pitch Game 2 of the NLDS, Benjamin Hochman of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Garcia will battle with Met's righty Noah Syndergaard in Game 2 of the NLDS on Saturday. The 29-year-old was excellent this year, posting a 2.43 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 129.2 innings this year, however he give up two runs in seven innings during his only start against the Mets this year. Considering that start was all the way back on May 21, fantasy owners shouldn't take much stock in that outcome with both teams changing dramatically since Garcia last faced the Mets.

      Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia twirls a gem in win over Brewers

      Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia (10-5) was spectacular on Saturday, as he struck out eight Brewers over eight one-run innings in a win over the Brewers. He allowed seven hits and no walks. What makes Garcia so special is his control, as he has just 28 walks in 125.2 innings this season. It's been a breakout campaign for the southpaw, as he maintains a 2.36 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 19 starts this season. Injuries are the only concern for the lefty, as he has failed to eclipse 200 innings and has pitched 60 or less innings in three of his seven seasons.

Garcia has been excellent this year, as he owns a 2.45 ERA and an 84:28 K:BB in 117.2 innings.

      Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia's struggles continue Wednesday

      Cardinals starting pitcher Jaime Garcia (9-5) gave up four runs on eight hits and a walk in 6 1/3 innings Wednesday against the Brewers, but still picked up the win. Garcia has been experiencing some painful course correction lately, having given up four or more runs in three of his last four starts. His ERA, a minuscule 1.77 before this stretch, is now up to 2.52. This is easily the most he's pitched in the last three seasons, so he could be tiring down the stretch a bit, as his strikeout production has dipped significantly.

      Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia gets roughed up by Reds on Thursday

      Starter Jaime Garcia endured his worst start of the season on Thursday, as the Cardinals were pounded 11-0 by the Reds. Garcia lasted just 4 1/3 innings and gave up six runs on six hits. He walked four and struck out two, and really never had anything working. Garcia (8-5, 2.33 ERA) allowed a run in each of the second and third innings before things really fell apart in a four-run fifth inning. Thursday's outing was Garcia's shortest of the season, and the six runs are the most he has allowed in any of his 16 starts this year.
