Cardinals' Jaime Garcia backtracks on 'starting pitcher' declaration
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia clarified his recent comments, telling reporters now that he's preparing to be a starter, but is open to any role on the staff, per MLB.com.

"My point wasn't to come in here and say, 'If I'm not a starting pitcher, I'm not going to go to the bullpen,'" Garcia said. "I never meant for it to sound like that.

"What I meant to say is that I prepare myself to be [a starter], but I'm coming here to compete and win a spot on the team. If it comes down to being something else besides a starting pitcher, then I'll be happy to do that.

"I've never [pitched in relief] in my life. That's my point. I didn't prepare this offseason to be a bullpen guy or be a closer. I prepared myself to be a starting pitcher, get my pitch count up. But obviously coming in here, I'm trying to earn a spot to pitch in the Major Leagues in April. I want to let my work out there do the talking. That was my whole point."

Garcia had surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome in July, and was able to get through a normal offseason. He's not expected to have any restrictions this spring.

Cardinals' Jaime Garcia: 'I'm a starting pitcher'
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia is hoping to return to the rotation this season, according to MLB.com.

Injuries have limited Garcia to just 16 starts in the majors over the past two seasons, but he's ready to ramp things up in 2015. Garcia had surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome in July, but always knew he would return strong from the injury. "There was never one doubt in my mind that I was going to come back from this really tough surgery and really tough injury that has ended careers in the past," Garcia said. "I knew it was going to be a tough challenge."

Due to Garcia's past injuries, the Cardinals will head into the season with Garcia tentatively penciled in as a starter. He's expected to compete with Carlos Martinez and Marco Gonzales for the fifth spot in the team's rotation. 

Garcia was able to get through a normal offseason, and expects to have no restrictions during spring training. He's entering the final year of his contract, and is owed $9.25 million this season. Garcia's contract does contain some team options, but whether they get picked up will likely depend on his health moving forward.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak described recent reports on the progress of pitcher Jaime Garcia in rehab are "extraordinarily positive" Saturday, MLB.com reports.

Garcia had season-ending surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome in July. If the pitcher can continue to progress without suffering any setbacks, he may be able to compete for a rotation spot this spring. Garcia would presumably be battling for the fifth spot in the rotation behind Adam Wainwright, Michael Wacha, Lance Lynn and John Lackey.
