Deivi Garcia's Triple-A debut on Sunday caught the attention of many, including Yankees skipper Aaron Boone.
Prior to Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay, Boone was asked about Garcia's debut, when the 20-year-old right-hander allowed three earned runs over five innings, striking out six Columbus Clippers along the way.
"Good first Triple-A start," said Boone. "[He] had a presence. I actually watched probably a little over an inning of it, just to watch his stuff. Wasn't as dominant as we've seen in some of his outings, but I think a very good first showing in Triple-A.
"One of the reports said he had really good presence. He flashed all the pitches that have made him really special so far this year, so a good first outing for him to go get a win and throw strikes and rack up some punch outs too."
