Over at the Daily News, Adam Rubin profiles Emmanuel Garcia, who is probably the Mets 2nd best second baseman prospect.
Garcia, signed in ‘04 as an undrafted free agent out of Collège Ahuntsic, said he’s trying to make adjustments to the better breaking pitches he’s now seeing in Double-A. He noted that playing in the Florida State League last year was the first time he participated on a full-season team, so he’s still learning. Because he’s batting first, second and seventh, he’s focusing on taking pitches and getting on base. Garcia actually hasn’t homered since Aug. 12, 2006 with Kingsport, although he has 82 steals in 1,042 minor-league at-bats.
