After drafting All Star Buster Posey in 2008 and highly talented Andrew Susac in 2011, the Giants knew that they had a pretty deep catching tandem for the future. However, the 2014 Conference USA Player of the Year at FIU Garcia was too talented to pass on, and the Giants drafted him 52nd overall.

Garcia is currently with the high Single-A San Jose Giants after being promoted from the Augusta Green Jackets earlier this year. The six foot, two inch Garcia is known to be more of an offensive player. In the 98 games played this season, Garcia has hit .268 with 15 home runs and 66 RBIs. Garcia also strikes out at a high rate as he is almost averaging a strikeout per game (95 strikeouts).

Do not expect to see Garcia being promoted to the MLB any time soon. The Giants do not have any need for him with Posey and Susac, and Garcia has a lot more defensive developing to do before he can be considered MLB-ready.
