Does Yimi Garcia Have Fantasy Relevance?

Joey Ricotta |March 31st, 2020  

Signed as a free agent this offseason, the former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Yimi Garcia, enters 2020 as a primary setup man for the Miami Marlins. In this day and age, it’s hard to find a pitcher who hasn’t had Tommy John surgery at some point in their career.

The Bears had a dominating defense and a progressing young offense with an offensive-minded coaching guru to navigate the ship. That was until all of those aforementioned positives took a step back this season. With an 8-8 record and third-place finish in the NFC North, it’s safe to say the Bears didn’t live up to the hype. However, there were some positives, along with some things to look forward to. Let’s take a look at what happened, the plan this offseason, and the expectations for next year. Continue reading
