Garcia said, “I was aware of the fact that scouts of different teams watch the exhibition games when we play all around the world”. He added, “I thought that I have the opportunity to perform well in front of them to get a chance to play in major-league”.
He got a chance to play in the minor-league in the Chicago Cubs color. He performed exceptionally well in the minor-league matches. Alex Suarez, Cubs director of international player development, said, “He is performing exceptionally well and he is exceeding everybody’s expectations”. He added, “He is a kind of player who can make adjustments as quickly as possible”.
Cubs has included players from Dominican Republic in the team in the past as well. Roberto Novoa and Alberto Cabrera are the former players of Cubs from Dominican Republic. Juan Encarnacion, Odalis Perez, Jean Segura, and Valerio de los Santos are also belonged to Las Matas de Farfan, Dominican Republic which is the hometown of Robert Garcia.
