As the Yankees put their nearest AL East competitors in The Bronx on Monday, another important step for their future took another step in its development, as Deivi Garcia made her first Tri-A with Scranton / Wilkes-Barre.
Garcia, who was promoted from Double-A Trenton just, began to start with five innings against Columbus.
He gave up a race – including a homer – he walked one and he hit it out.
Omar Minaya, a special assistant with general manager Mets, Brodie Van Wagenen, looked at the game Garcia Monday. Noah Syndergaard could be a trade candidate.
He widely considered that the Yankees had a great expectation, and Garcia drew comparisons with Pedro Martinez and Marcus Stroman.
The Garcia was not discouraged against improved competition.
Last week, general manager, Brian Cashman, told SiriusXM's MLB Network Radio that Garcia was “pushing into the mix himself” to enter the Yankees team this season.
He might have some company, as Aaron Boone said that Jonathan Loaisiga could be a “at some point” option as he returns from shoulder injury.
Michael King, the right 23-year-old, who dealt with issues of angle from spring training, made a second revival with the Yankees' League Coast team on Monday. It allowed one run in 1 ² / ₃ innings.
