Garcia has been promoted to Triple-A Albuquerque, William Boor of MLB.com reports.
Garcia was dominating for Double-A Hartford, so the Rockies will bump him up a level and see what he can do in the Pacific Coast League. The 25-year-old went 8-2 with a sparkling 1.85 ERA and an 87:23 K:BB in 13 starts for the YardGoats.
Garcia (8-1) picked up a win for Double-A Hartford on Sunday, giving up three hits and one earned run over six innings, striking out four and walking three in a 3-1 victory for the Yard Goats.
It was a lights-out week for the right-hander, who nearly spearheaded a combined no-hitter in his last start before following that up with another excellent outing Sunday. Through 67 innings, he's now in the top five in the Eastern League in all three pitching triple crown categories with eight wins, a 1.88 ERA and 85 strikeouts.
Garcia fired six hitless innings for Double-A Hartford on Tuesday, striking out 11 and walking none in a 3-0 victory.
The right-hander was utterly dominant as the Yard Goats nearly tossed a combined no-hitter, only to have it controversially broken up by a bunt single in the ninth inning. That doesn't take away from the fabulous effort by Garcia, who is lighting it up in Double-A to the tune of a 7-1 record, 1.92 ERA and 81:18 K:BB over 61 innings. He's established himself as a prospect to watch in the Rockies system and could find himself in line for a promotion to Triple-A Albuquerque sooner rather than later should he continue to dominate like this.
