This guy is just tearing it up as a rookie. Personally I think Dave Duncan just has a special way with pitchers. But anyways. I know this kind of production isn't sustainable especially with a BABIP of .221 but what kind of stuff do you see him putting out from here on out? Apparently FanGraphs likes him: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.ph ... -is-jaime/

I can't believe there isn't more talk about him. He has been terrific, and is only owned in 50% of Yahoo leagues. Pitched another good game tonight.

The one knock on Duncan has always been that he can't handle young pitchers (Ankiel).

His GB% is unbelievable so far. Around 75%, 2nd in the majors is 60%, anything over 50% is solid...

I wish I had someone to drop for him.... He is looking to be a solid pitcher but the only ones I would even consider would be Matusz, Marcum, Fuentes, or Capps. But they all have solid value....

Not sure what they're going to do because if he keeps dealing like this, with the Cards almost certain to be in contention, they will really be able to use his arm down the stretch run/playoffs. It'll be hard to shut down the potential ROY/Cards' 4th Starters if they want to edge out the Phils and the rest of the NL.

I saw on SC last night that Garcia's ERA was the second-best ever for a rookie in April with only Fernando Valenzuela having a better one.

Does this kids 3.72 xFIP scare anyone other than me? I picked him up recently because I think he will be great, but this kinda shows a decline.... does it scare anyone else?

A 3.72 xFIP is good. If that's where his ERA settles to ultimately all of his owners should still be happy.
