Luis Garcia SS PHI

Recommended Posts

Prospects Live recently listed as the #1 overall Philly prospect, ahead of Sixto who was a consensus top 20 prospect overall last year.

 

Fangraphs not quite as bullish but did say he could be Philly’s “2019 prospect breakout”.

 

Only recently turned 18, but appears to have every offensive box checked off except HR power that is expected to develop.  

 

Maybe someone who could make the quantum leap to top overall prospect lists next year?

A player really high on my radar as list come out. Being in an NL league I was pleased he wasn't shipped to Seattle.

The other Luis Garcia with Washington is better.

 

I think in terms of a fantasy asset, this may be right. Phillies Garcia seems more in the mold of Andres Gimenez than a fantasy star, but a lot can chance.  If power isn't a big part of his game, he needs some great speed to be an impact fantasy guy.  That being said, power wasn't supposed to be a part of Lindor's game. I absolutely never expected that.

If the power does develop, I would think Philly is a much more hitter-friendly park than Washington.  I don't really think you can go wrong with either one, but I really like the upside on this kid.  The other Garcia is going to have Trea Turner and Carter Kieboom to deal with in front of him which makes playing SS or 2B (I'm assuming Kieboom will move to 2B) very tough.
