A Look At.......

Welp not much going on in Yankee Land right now. So I have decided to showcase a player that don’t get as much attention as others. He is on the Yanks top 30 prospects list, and are all in their teens :) The Man is Devi Garcia, currently assigned to Double A Trenton Thunder. Garcia is a RHP at Age: 19, listed at 5' 10" and 163 lb. Devi was signed: July 2, 2015, for $200,000. Though their international spending spree during the previous signing period meant they couldn't pay any more than $300,000 to anyone in 2015-16, the Yankees found a pair of potential impact arms in the Dominican Luis Medina and Garcia. Garcia is some what small but has a quick arm and possesses some of the best spin rates in the Yankees’s organization. He spent his first two pro seasons in three different Rookie leagues, logging a 2.99 ERA with 146 strikeouts in 108 1/3 innings. Garcia generates tremendous spin on his fastball and a devastating one with his curveball. The curve has good depth, generates plus grades on a regular basis and is most likely his best pitch. He works in the low 90s but can hit 96 mph with his heater which can ride at times. Garcia also throws a changeup that fades and should develop into an average to good third offering. If his size becomes an issue as a starter, and or he's not durable enough to stay in the rotation, his fastball/curveball combination could make him a dynamic reliever. Time will tell, hopefully he is one of the next wave of many baby bombers.   

Sorry for the Lack of Pictures lately fans the Blogger App has been having issues for a few weeks now, and I have not had access to my Laptop.
