Garcia pitches well, then leaves due to injury in Yankees 7-5 loss to Blue Jays

Freddy Garcia made his case as to why he should be in the starting rotation during a Yankees 7-5 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Garcia pitched 3 innings of 1 run ball until he was forced to come out of the game in the 4th after he misplayed the baseball and it hit him in the right hand. Garcia had his fingers stretched out and refused to move his hand as Girardi took him out of the game.

Cory Wade gave up a solo HR to J.P Arencibia while Manny Banuelos was lit up, giving up a 3 run HR to Edwin Encarnacion. Encarnacion also hit a solo shot against Garcia in the second inning. Garcia was taken back to Tampa where he will have precautionary x-rays.

WHAT’S NEXT: Brett Gardner, Russell Martin & Andruw Jones will make the trip to play the Washington Nationals tomorrow. Fans who are interested in watching Nationals prospect Bryce Harper (along with the Yankees of course), the game is on MLB Network tomorrow at 1:05pm. Michael Pineda is slated to pitch for the Yanks.

  1. Gonna take your last point Fish and have a new thread start here. Can you see the Yankees trading a couple young prospect pitchers to a team for a Young up and coming Outfielder.

    Sorta like 2 pitching prospects for a player that shows promise maybe with 2 years MLB service.
