The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Garner shares the left side with Waters for Franklin, usually at the hot corner.  With Waters banged up, Garner handled the SS duties and did an admirably job.  Solid frame with proportional strength, smooth hands and good arm with carry on throws.  Offensively, puts together quality at bats with gap to gap power.  Worked two walks, stole two bases, and barreled a ball to CF while coming around to score once on Opening Day vs Summit.  Due to frame and solid offense, Projects to move to 3B at next level, but above average defender at SS if needed.
