Nate Pearson got the ball in Saturday’s Blue Jays vs the Blue Jays game and the organization’s No. 1 prospect picked up right where he left off back in spring training.
Pearson tossed two innings in the intrasquad game, throwing 18 of 31 pitches for strikes. He didn’t allow a hit, surrendered just one walk, and picked up two strikeouts. After the outing, he said that he felt really good on the mound and that he spent the lockdown sharpening up his off-speed stuff.
