Deivi Garcia has been a force in the Yankees' minor league system this season, and now he's getting noticed for it.
The 20-year-old pitching prospect will represent the Yankees at this year's All-Star Futures Game in Cleveland.
Garcia, a right-hander, is the owner of a 2.78 ERA and 4-4 record in time split with Single-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton. His strikeout ability has garnered plenty of attention, thanks to 109 punchouts in just 64.2 innings (15.2 K/9). The Yankees' No. 4 prospect was part of a combined no-hitter this season when he struck out nine batters in five innings.
While he'll need to work on walks (4.2 BB/9), the young fireballer has offered plenty of optimism through his quick ascension within New York's system.
Garcia is the only Yankees' representative, but another name will stand out to fans - Jorge Mateo.
The speedy infielder was once a top prospect within the organization, but was part of the 2017 trade for Sonny Gray. The 24-year-old has had a solid season with Triple-A Las Vegas, slashing .316/.349/.547 with 12 home runs, 17 doubles and 16 stolen bases.
