NATE PEARSON MAKES BLUE JAYS DEBUT

Nate Pearson made his long awaited debut in Wednesday night’s game. The Blue Jays top prospect was not on the opening day roster so that the Jays could push back his free agency. He was officially called up to the roster on Wednesday morning.

The 23-year-old started against the reigning World Series champions and faced off against one of the best pitchers in the game in Max Scherzer. Despite the pressure and circumstances, Pearson did not disappoint. He went five innings while giving up two hits and walking two. He did not give up a single run and topped out at 99 MPH.

A first round pick by the Blue Jays in 2017, Pearson played college baseball at FIU and College of Central Florida. For the most part he dominated the minor leagues, working his way to the All-Star Futures Game in 2019. He pitched the fifth inning of that game and struck out two batters while hitting 101 MPH three times.

Pearson will be a solid 1-2 punch with newly acquired Hyun-jin Ryu. They are looking to lead a team that has not had a winning record since 2016 and has had an ERA of 4+ since that same time.
