Things I'd like to see from Garza:

  • Good velocity. His fastball was down a couple MPH last start, allowing him to get hit around more, so it'd be nice to see that rebound.
  • Attack the hitters. The Royals are not the most patient team (second worst walk rate in majors), so Garza can probably get them to chase at lots of close pitches.
  • More ground balls. Garza's grounder rate is currently the lowest in his career (34.6%).
