That's how I look at it.

If at the deadline the Nats are struggling, Turner is a guy you can get a package that accelerates the rebuild. And if the Nationals are in it, Garcia is one of the few guys in the minors who can get you anything.

heading back to the show to replace Robles - .235/ .293 / .426 so far with 4 HRs in 75 PAs, he has been improving week-to-week as well.

Hit another homer last night. Now up to .284/.349/.875 in 106 plate appearances. This his best hitting season so far. 100+ PAs isn't a super small sample.

I had kind of written him off. I keep forgetting his major league stats aren't the worst and that he is only 21. I think he can still develop him into a solid, maybe above average starting middle infielder.

Luis Garcia maybe popping back into the longterm picture is one of the few positive tidbits in this farm system.

he should be playing at around high-A given his age, so the numbers he's putting up at AAA are pretty impressive. If he keeps this up another couple of weeks he's going to force himself back to the majors, or open the door for the team to trade Turner.

He's in AAA and he's barely 21.  Twenty-one is very young for AA, let alone AAA or the majors.  Of the current MLB Top 50 prospects, only three are 21 or younger and at least at AAA.

If he hadn't played most of last year in the majors he'd easily be a top-50 prospect.

Exactly, especially for the mid-season update after the current numbers.  I live in a AA city where the team has three top-100s.  Two of them are more than two years older than Garcia, and the other one was a top-5 overall pick who is still older than Garcia.

I wish they'd not yo-yo him this season. Let him rake in AAA. See what happens when teams adjust to him. See how he adjusts to those adjustments. I'd rather them waive one of our filler arms on the 40 man and sign a nobody off the street to be the 26th man than take Luis Garcia away from every day starts in AAA.

He's already burned an option this year, so might as well make the best of it.  If he's up, he needs to be playing, though.

They're treating him like they did Difo and even Turner for a while. They are calling him up to chill on the bench.

Young players with big upside need to be up and playing. If they want a young guy able to go back and forth, get Noll back on the roster.

If we had a chance this year, I would say call him up. Considering we have no chance, I think we let Garcia have a terrific year in AAA and give him a september callup. He'll be in our opening day infield next year and I have very high expectations. He's 21 and can absolutely be a super star

I have watched Garcia a few times. He is a crude fielder, and not ready to hit serious pitching. Turner is nearly the best SS in baseball.
