Freddy Garcia?

From the Tribune via SI.com:

The White Sox would like to make room for 23-year-old Brandon McCarthy in their rotation, which means they likely will move one of their starters. Freddy Garcia is scheduled to earn $10 million next season -- $2.5 million less than Javier Vazquez and $500,000 more than the team option on left-hander Mark Buehrle.


Now, the blurb doesn't say they'd be shopping him, and it does ignore the fact that Vazquez is doing worse and getting paid more money (which would seem to indicate he'd be the one getting dealt), but still, Garcia is a proven innings-eater (only under 200 for the season once in his career) and may shave a few points off his ERA (currently 4.63) in the NL. And given that it would be somewhat of a salary dump, he may not cost that much.


What thinkst?
