Pearson after dazzling debut: ‘I belong here’

That extra week of Summer Camp really paid off!

Nate Pearson’s MLB debut in Wednesday’s 4-0 loss to the Nationals matched the sky-high expectations for the Blue Jays’ No. 1 prospect, as he held the defending champions scoreless over five innings of two-hit ball at Nationals Park. Pearson struck out five and walked two.

“My stuff plays here and I belong here,” Pearson said. “I’ll just carry that confidence that I had today into my next outing and my outings in years to come. I know my stuff plays, and that’s all I’m focused on.”

The towering right-hander showed not just his elite talent, but the many layers that come along with it as he opened the game leaning heavily on his fastball and slider before adjusting his pitch mix to include his curveball and changeup late. Pearson was in full control for a tidy 75 pitches over those five frames, and he knew it.

Latest On Blue Jays’ Plans For Nate Pearson

The Blue Jays plan to activate standout pitching prospect Nate Pearson on July 29, Jamie Campbell of Sportsnet reports. Pearson is not on the Blue Jays’ 40-man roster, which is currently full.

Toronto will gain an extra year of control over Pearson by keeping him off its roster during the first week of its season. So, considering the league’s rules on service time, it’s no surprise that the team will open its schedule without the 23-year-old right-hander. But Pearson may wind up as a game-changing addition to the Blue Jays’ roster when he does make his debut, and perhaps someone who could challenge for American League Rookie of the Year honors.
