Garcia (shoulder) will make his first start of the spring Saturday for the Cardinals, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Garcia is trying to crack the rotation again this year after his 2014 was derailed by injuries. He'll have to beat out youngsters Carlos Martinez and Marco Gonzales.

When he does return, it's hard to know what to expect out of the 28-year-old as injuries have limited him to just 16 MLB appearances since 2012.
