There were far more reasonable players to designate than Jarlin Garcia and Jose Quijada. Granted, Quijada failed to live up to his minor league pedigree, with a 7.9 walk rate and a 1.797 WHIP. But Garcia?
Garcia ranked seventh on the 2019 Marlins with 1.3 Wins Above Replacement, the highest mark in the bullpen. His 141 ERA+ was easily the best mark on the team, well over the 116 figure that since-departed Tyler Kinley posted.
