Cubs f/x reports Freddy Garcia has injured his throwing shoulder during a game in the Venezuelan Winter League. The post cites a pair of sources, including an official team website and an article at Venezuelan newspaper El Universal.
The extent of the injury is presently unknown, but regardless, it certainly won’t help convince teams to sign Garcia to any sort of substantial contract this offseason.
Fewer starting pitching options may push contract values up, but few teams were likely pinning their hopes for a World Series on a healthy and effective Freddy Garcia.
