Freddy Garcia was terrific for six innings on Saturday. He certainly earned another start and maybe more, but don’t count on Garcia as a mainstay in the Orioles’ rotation.

One of the weaknesses of the Orioles’ rotation has been its inability to go deep in games. For a moment, Garcia looked as if he could get through the seventh inning, but Mark Trumbo had other ideas.

The six no-hit innings were wonderful, but the Orioles can’t afford another starter who can’t go deep in games.

Last year, Garcia started 17 times for the Yankees. In only one of them did he finish seven, and in only four more did he finish six. In six of his starts, he couldn’t finish five.

Garcia hasn’t pitched a complete game since 2006, and in 2010 and 2011, averaged under six innings per start. That’s not going to cut it for the long-term in Baltimore.
