The New York Yankees have had quite a bumpy season in 2021, being far from the postseason. on several occasions and even with great winning streaks that bring them closer and closer to the promised land. They now own their destiny this season after sweeping the Red Sox at home and despite the great problems they have had in his pitching rotation this season of MLB, still prospect Deivi Garcia couldn’t get away and earn a spot on Aaron Boone’s pitching staff.
Deivi García was projected to be one of the big revelations this year for the New York Yankees, however, he only made two starts this season and in both he did pretty badly, losing both and completing an ERA of 6.48, receiving 6 runs. in just 8.1 innings. But in Triple A, the 22-year-old Dominican has not done well either, accumulating a 3-7 record with 89.3 innings in 23 outings, with an ERA of 6.83.
But what happened to the top Yankees prospect? Bronx Bombers pitching coach Matt Blake explained to NJ.com’s Brendan Kuty the problems he has faced.
It has obviously been a tough season for Deivi. He has had a lot of inconsistencies in his throwing and throwing strikes. I feel like he had to make a lot of adjustments to his mechanics from season to season and lost his focus along the way, plus he lost confidence to attack the strike zone. It’s hard to see such a young player battle like this, but given his age, you expect him to have some problems.
Can Deivi García overcome all the problems he has gone through in 2021?
