Ozzie Doesn't Think Garcia Will Be Ready

TUESDAY: Garcia was "very, very upset" by Guillen's comments.  His audition is tentatively scheduled for August 5th, and he believes he can help a contender this year.

SATURDAY: Freddy Garcia is hard at work trying to rebound from labrum surgery.  Roughly a dozen teams are interested; they hope the veteran right-hander will able to contribute in September and perhaps October.

His close friend and former manager Ozzie Guillen, however, isn't too optimistic about Garcia's chances. Guillen told MLB.com writer Scott Merkin:

"I doubt it. I hope he is. He's my friend...But when I see him and where he's at right now, I don't see that happening. I don't think by August, maybe September. Freddy hasn't even thrown off the mound yet.

"He's throwing flat and he's throwing good and he said his velocity is coming around. Everything is fine, but people think because you play catch, you are pitching. That's not the same. You don't have people on the mound or hitting. I hope he do it, but it's going to be a little bit difficult for him to do it."
