Phillies' Elniery Garcia: On DL with shoulder fatigue
Garcia is on the 7-day DL at Double-A Reading due to shoulder fatigue, MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo reports.
Garcia is a 6-foot southpaw with a four-pitch mix and good command, although he lacks a true out pitch among his secondaries, which could limit him to a back-end starter role. According to FanGraphs' Eric Longenhagen, Garcia was up to 97 mph in his final start of the year last year, sitting in the 92-94 mph range. If that is his sitting velocity going forward, he might be able to profile as a mid-rotation arm, but the first step will be a healthy return from his current shoulder woes.
