With the minor league season winding down, let’s take a look at a player who has excelled when his team needed him the most.
It has been a tough year for Memphis Redbirds’ infielder Greg Garcia. Before the season began, there was talk that Garcia was near the top of the Cardinals’ short stop depth chart in the minor leagues, even passing Ryan Jackson. Garcia started slow, only hitting .226 in April, while Jackson was out to a great start. Garcia had an amazing run in August, hitting .368 with 2 home runs and 12 runs batted in, while getting on base 47% of the time. Ryan Jackson has gone the other way, hitting just .218 in August.
