DoTF: Deivi goes 1-2-3 in Futures Game, gets promoted

5-foot-9 with a heater like that? Swoon.

News & Notes

  • Right after his outing in the Futures Game (more on that below), Deivi Garcia was promoted to Triple-A. The 20-year-old has a 3.01 ERA with 114 strikeouts in 68 2/3 innings across High-A/Double-A.
  • Garcia is young for his signing class, so he’ll need to be added to the 40-man roster after this season (I was wrong on that a few weeks ago). That makes a potential call-up to the Majors at some point more logical for NYY. Still, he’s a little more than a month past his 20th birthday.

Futures Game: (AL vs. NL 2-2 tie) … Deivi Garcia was the starting pitcher for the American League team and was the only NYY rep.

  • RHP Deivi Garcia: 1 IP, zeros, 1 K — Fastball sat 93-97 mph. Attacked with his fastball and got Braves prospect Christian Pache looking on a 96-mph heater. Garcia used all four of his pitches and got a pop out on his changeup. No hard contact. Curveball was sharp as advertised. Last two batters he retired (WAS’s Kieboom and MIA’s Diaz) were Triple-A batters.
  • Garcia, as you can imagine, was pumped to pitch in the game.

    Hard not to get excited about Deivi, his stuff looked electric out there.

    • RetroRob

      His rise through the minors this year is reminiscent of Sevy’s rise in 2015, which eventually landed him on the Yankees later that season. The one concern is his walk rate is high, but that’s something that should improve.
