The 20 worst A-Braves players: #13 Jesse Garcia

Hard to imagine why the Braves and Orioles felt the need to swap Steve Sisco and Jesse Garcia, two players destined to be minor league journeymen.

You may have forgotten about Garcia, who played parts of four seasons with the Braves. He surpassed 100 AB’s just once, in 2004, Jesse’s last in Atlanta. That year Garcia drew his first, and only, walk as a Brave. That’s right: in 191 AB’s Garcia walked ONCE — not a good idea when you’re a career .216 hitter with no power.

He wasn’t that slick a fielder, either, committing 7 errors in ’04 in just 39 games. Garcia ended his Braves career with a negative WAR on offense AND defense.
