After missing most of the last two-and-a-half years due to injury, Freddy Garcia has emerged as arguably Chicago's most reliable starter down the stretch. He's put up a 3.29 ERA in his last six starts, and opponents are hitting just .234/.283/.355 off the guy that was once traded for Randy Johnson. Garcia has already expressed a desire to return to the White Sox next year according to MLB.com's Jesse Temple, and the team holds a $1MM option for his services next year.
The front of Chicago's rotation is pretty well set with Mark Buehrle, Jake Peavy, John Danks, and Gavin Floyd, so Garcia would give the team a cheap and experienced option in the five-spot. Plus there's the old adage of "you can never have too much pitching." What do you guys think, picking up the option seems like a no-brainer, right?
