Yennsy Diaz was added to our 40-guy roster just before the Rule 5 draft this yr. I have uncertainties that we genuinely needed to defend him, he completed previous yr at Dunedin and does not look like like anyone who is completely ready to be in the majors for the whole time. But then who is familiar with.
Yennsy is a 22-yr-previous ideal-handed pitcher, who the Jays signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2014 for $70,000 (in some cases the smaller global signings operate). He throws mid-90s (in some cases greater 90s). It will be exciting to see how he fares towards hitters as he moves up the system. He was selection 23 on our prospect listing previous yr.
He is not a massive person, listed at 6’1” but just 160 lbs, but I hear that fat does not evaluate coronary heart or one thing like that.
Past yr he split time amongst Lansing and Dunedin, placing up a 3.05 Period in 27 video games, 25 commences. In 147.1 innings, he experienced 53 walks and 125 strikeouts. I’d imagine he’ll start future yr in New Hampshire.
He between numerous slight league pitchers who could both start or, with how difficult he can toss and if the secondary pitches really do not come to be important league completely ready, he could be a setup guy in the bullpen.
The issue is the place will he finish up this yr?
He’s on the 40-guy, so there is a good possibility that he’ll make it to the Blue Jays as 1 of the men who arrives up, pitches a few innings in a game and then receives despatched back down.
Let’s crack this into two issues:
Will Yennsy make it to the majors this yr?
200 votes full
At which degree will Yennsy pitch the most innings?
203 votes full
I’m seeking ahead to looking at him pitch this spring (or, I guess, not looking at him as RSN is only demonstrating us a handful of video games again this yr, probably he’ll toss on a working day that another crew demonstrates the game).
