Garcia,26, is entering his seventh season in pro baseball, and is a career .330 hitter, with 50 HR’s, and 320 RBI’s. The Brooklyn, New York native, who attended Xaverian High School, missed the entire 2013 season due to injury, but batted .285/.408/.431 in 411 AB with the Single-A affiliate of the Braves in 2012.
Another young talented minor leaguer to develop in the Mets farm system. Looking forward to watching his development.
Welcome to the Mets!
