Jaime Garcia (shoulder) said he expects to be ready for the start of spring training.

Garcia was shut down on two occasions last season due to shoulder issues, but was able to avoid surgery and have a fairly normal offseason. While he's declared himself ready for spring training, his health remains a concern going into 2013. He recently turned down an opportunity to play for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic, and will instead focus on getting medically cleared for Opening Day.
