DoTF: Deivi Garcia, two relievers combine for Trenton no-hitter

News and Notes

  • Before he helped throw a no-hitter today, Deivi Garcia was No. 1 on Baseball America’s Hot Sheet and earned MiLB.com’s Eastern League Pitcher of the Week for his 15-strikeout game last week. He leads the Minors with more than 15 strikeouts per nine.
  • Garcia is one of five Thunder players to make the Eastern League All-Star Game along with 1B Chris Gittens, OF Ben Ruta, INF Hoy Jun Park and RHP Daniel Alvarez, the latter who threw the last two innings of today’s no-hitter. Gittens told The Trentonian he will participate in the Home Run Derby.
  • With Brian Keller back, the Thunder have a six-man rotation, as the Trentonian details at the end of the previous post. Unsure how they’re planning on organizing everyone, but it could cut down on everyone’s innings.

    Trying not to get too excited by Deivi based on his age, height, etc., but he’s making it difficult. He’s burning through AA.

    And totally random, I wonder if Kratz will make the trip to London. Not as a member of the 25-man, but they’ll need to bring a couple players along in case there’s an injury. One of Sanchez or Romine gets injured (even very minor) could cause create a problem getting a back up there quickly.

    That second Deivi video has a 1 minute ad in front of it, lol.

      Yeah, that’s a bit extreme but someone’s gotta pay the freight!
