Padres Release Freddy Garcia
Today the Padres have released Freddy Garcia. Josh Byrnes signed Garcia to a minor league contract and Spring Training invite with hopes that he could be a veteran presence inside the clubhouse for the younger pitchers. However, Freddy Garcia had a rather uninspiring 8.71 ERA in 20 2/3 IP during this Spring Training. With the release of Garcia, this thins out the herd of pitchers vying for the #5 spot in the rotation.
