He's had PLENTY of problems, and hasn't pitched in a while. He looks like a lost cause right now in terms of a player. He should be focused on getting better.
It's interesting, because on the Marlins' message board, there was somebody posting right after he was drafted mentioning that he had a drug problem, and everybody pretty much dismissed him. You'd think if this guy knew, the Marlins brass should've known and passed on him.
I would much prefer to deal Garland now, coming off the 18 win season, and a year away from FA. I feel like Contreras will likely re-up with the Sox, so we would have all of our starters locked up for at least 2 more years.
