Freddy Garcia watch

The Padres are looking for a #5 starter and probably won't find the guy they want from within their own system. Enter former White Sox right-hander, and a guy the Padres' considered in the past, Freddy Garcia.

According to Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post, the Mets are not considering Garcia for the 5th spot in their rotation and he has already made it known that he will not pitch in the minor leagues.

If I'm Kevin Towers, I'm already talking to his agent and gauging what Garcia would ask for at least a 1-year deal and get him into camp ASAP. He's a guy that has had success in Chicago and could very well have success in a place like Petco Park. If he'll take a 1-year $1MM - $2MM deal, I sign him to it now.
