Not terrible. On the better end of the injury-reclamation minor league invite scale. More competition in the spring is always a good thing.

Not their most ambitious Garland venture ever. But probably more guaranteed money.

If healthy he's a good #4 and a very good #5.

Hoynes just tweeted that Garland skipped his physical. No longer an option.

Sucks, cause I really liked this move. Maybe they'll sign him in March and let him go to extended Spring Training and build his arm up. Could be an option in May or June when McAllister/Huff/Gomez/Slowey all have an ERA above 5.

Scott Barnes, baby. He's my pick for the "best" #5 starter at some point this season.
