Garcia played 51 games behind the plate, committing three errors for a .991 Fld% and nine passed balls. However, he caught 30 of 65 baserunners for a 46% caught-stealing rate.

Garcia's arm and his defense is nice to have, but he regressed as a hitter in 2009. In 2008 (granted, in only 18 games), Garcia hit .295/.340/.386. Okay, so with 47 PAs to compare, maybe Garcia didn't regress at all, and this is a more accurate representation of his hitting prowess.
