Padres Release Freddy Garcia

The Padres have released right-hander Freddy Garcia, according to MLB.com's Corey Brock (Twitter link). Garcia had inked a minor league deal with the Friars earlier this offseason.

The 36-year-old Garcia pitched to a 5.20 ERA, 7.5 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 in 107 1/3 innings for the Yankees last season. However, from 2010-11 he was able to post a 4.15 ERA over the course of 303 2/3 innings for the White Sox and Yankees -- a pair of very hitter-friendly environments.

Garcia drew interest from the MarlinsRockies, Twins and Reds at various points throughout the offseason before signing his minor league commitment with the Padres.
