I would rather have Garcia than Pineda or Chapman.

The reason I have Pineda and Chapman is that they are young with upside. I play in a keeper league where players are kept one round higher then the previous year they were drafted. So I have great value on both Chapman and Pineda.

Anyone have any other thoughts?

Chapman is posting some stupid numbers right now as a MR. I'd cut Bauer for Garcia. You have a lot of starters already though. Monitor your innings carefully.

Garcia is in a similar boat only he has more proven success. In H2H leagues I usually don't use a middle reliever very often so that is why I would probably cut Chapman no matter how great his numbers are but I could be in the minority on that one.

I agree you do have a lot of pitchers, i just don't think Garcia should be a free agent.
