Jaime Garcia Injury Update: Cardinals Pitcher Sharp In Opening Rehab Game

The St. Louis Cardinals hope to get SP Jaime Garcia back from him 60-day DL stint soon, and he made the first important step to that end, performing well in his opening minor league rehab game:

Garcia, 25, an extreme ground ball pitcher, is at his best in games where he is inducing ground balls and limiting walks. In the 2012 season, he has a 4.48 ERA and a strong 2.78 FIP through 66 and 1/3 innings.

He proved to be a key cog in the Cardinals 2011 rotation, pitching 194 and 2/3 innings with a 3.56 ERA and 3.23 FIP.
