Garcia has made five starts for Norfolk. He’s 4-0 and has an ERA of 2.67 while striking out 21 and walking only two in 33 and two-thirds innings.

That’ll play. But even if it doesn’t, Garcia is gonna be pitching forever. Because he does things like accept minor league assignments, knowing full well that just about every team goes through multiple starters a year.
