Freddy Garcia Will Throw Bullpen Monday

According to Scot Gregor, Freddy Garcia was at U.S. Cellular Field today and will throw a bullpen session for the White Sox tomorrow. If all goes well, he'll attempt to pitch his way back to the Major Leagues.

Garcia, 33, pitched some of the better years of his career with the White Sox, including 2005 when they won the World Series. He was traded to Philadelphia for Gavin Floyd and Gio Gonzalez, though he he only won one game for Philadelphia before shoulder surgery derailed his career.

Garcia was released by the Mets after struggling this season, and cited the cold weather in New York as part of that reason. He claims to be better now, after a month of rest, however:

“I'm feeling good. It's about time. I don't have any pains so that's good.”
