The Yanks have somehow managed to get some value out of 34 year old Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Freddy Garcia, but that will surely come to an end as Garcia is one of the few pitchers that the Royals absolutely OWN. In a not insignificant sample size (27 starts), Garcia is 9-13 with a 5.89 ERA in his career against the Boys in Blue. Garcia is the performance-enhancing drug Royals hitters need, as they are hitting .316/.355/.533 with 25 home runs in those 27 games.
