Unfortunately at the hospital last night. Luckily after 5 hours they eventually got it to go down.

Deivi Garcia is a 19 year old right hander for The Yankees from Bonao, Dominican Republic.  He's only 5'10" but putting up some serious numbers.   In his second start at Advanced A he went 7

Deivi is being promoted to AAA after the Future's Game 💪

They nailed it between 15-20 seconds, "he's the total package, it's just size".  That's the only knock, the success rate of starters under 6'0 is just almost non-existent in the modern era.  Pedro and Lincecum have been the exception to the rule.

Anything new with this guy? They started him in A+ for someone reason instead of AA where he ended last year. Does this effect his timeline and will he be pitching for the Yanks in 2020? 

Might be a weather related assignment, but damn he looks great. 33 Ks in 17+IP!

He should be getting that AA very soon.

Yankees RHP prospect Deivi Garcia struck out 10 hitters while allowing just one run over 5 2/3 innings on Wednesday for High-A Tampa.

Advice: Garcia allowed four hits in the start, and he walked just one. The 19-year-old has had no issue missing bats over his first four starts of the year with 33 punchouts in just 17 2/3 innings. He's not going to miss bats like this at the highest level, but he does have a curve that gets double-plus grades and a fastball with movement that touches 97 mph. Garcia has also made improvement with his change, and for the most part, he locates all three pitches for strikes. At just 19, there's a lot of development left for Garcia, but that gives him as much upside as any pitcher in the New York system. He could be starting for the Yankees before the end of 2020.

I also think there's a small chance he reaches the majors this year with continued success. 

Man, I like the optimism. Still though, not that he will get bigger but bringing up a 19 year old 5'9" pitcher to debut in an AL East playoff race would be something. Would be something remarkable if it happened, especially at SP.

Would be very aggressive, no doubt but this kid has all the tools already at such a young age. Three pitch FB/CB/CH combo and is absolutely destroying the minors. If this continues in AA, I could see the Yanks handling him similarly to Loaisiga. Loaisiga only had around 60 total IP across A+ - AAA when they called him up and was not showing anything near the K potential Deivi currently is.

11K in 4IP is nuts though. 

Indeed - 11 out of 12 outs by strikeout given his age and the level he's at is far more of a positive than any negatives coming out of the start. Absolutely one to watch.

1 shy of matching his career high in Ks. Was also the most Ks by a Trenton starter this year. All 4 runs he surrendered were on one swing (GS).
