I know it's only April, but Freddy Garcia needs to go, and needs to go now.
His last outing on Saturday against the Detroit Tigers is just another example of why he can't cut it for the Yankees in 2012.
On Saturday, 1.2 innings pitched, five hits, six runs, two walks and three strikeouts. Garcia's 2012 record goes to 0-2 and his ERA all the way up to 12.51
That just won't cut it. Not in New York. Not on any major league team, and really, not in the minor leagues either.
Garcia has yet to have one start where he lasted six innings and lately, every time he has pitched, he's getting chased out of the game so early, he's taxing the bullpen.
The American League has figured out Garcia in 2012. Garcia was able to fool hitters in 2011 with his deceptive breaking stuff, but not now.
