Christian Garcia told reporters Friday that he still hasn’t heard what his role will be with the Nationals in 2013.
The Nationals have talked about converting Garcia into a starter, but haven’t ruled out keeping him on the Opening Day roster as a reliever. “I have no idea. Wherever they want to put me I am okay with it,” Garcia said. “I am going to go in there and compete for a job, and do the best I can.” A former third-round pick of the Yankees, Garcia posted a 2.13 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 15/2 K/BB ratio in 13 late-season appearances with the Nationals in 2012.
