Both names are doubtlessly familiar to you. Garcia has already been promoted to Detroit and has quickly become a fan favorite. (Not just for looking like Miguel Cabrera's "little" brother.) Rondon wowed everyone with pitches touching 102 in the Futures Game during the All-Star Break and has been talked up as the team's future closer.
So long as neither gets traded -- and let's face it, with this organization that is far from given -- both players could be key contributors in the future.
Garcia and Rondon both began their seasons in High-A Lakeland before receiving promotions to Double-A Erie. Rondon eventually ended up in Triple-A.
Garcia finished his 2012 minor-league stint with a .299 average, .333 on-base percentage and .455 slugging average across 513 plate appearances. He had 14 home runs and stole 23 bases.
Garcia is batting .313 / .389 / .313 after 18 major league plate appearances.
Rondon, who did not receive a promotion to Detroit nor was he listed on an Arizona Fall League roster, finished his minor league year with a 1.53 ERA compiled across 52 appearances. He had a 1.094 WHIP, 11.2 strikeouts per nine innings and 4.4 walks per nine innings. He saved 29 games.
