I don't think playing at 2B or 3B is bad. The bat may someday play at one of those spots. I think every SS we had past decade started at 2B and moved to SS. I know at least true for Espinosa and Turner.

Depends on how you view it, though.  Both those guys played SS in college at high-level programs and then all the way up in the minors and were 23 or 24 before coming to the majors (and Turner was still pretty unpolished defensively at that point). 

Garcia is barely 21 now and less than 2/3 of his minors experience is at SS.  He's not ready to be an MLB shortstop, though all signs suggest his glove will get there, which puts a ton less pressure on the bat.
