Toronto Blue Jays: News from the Nest – Sunday, July 4
New Hampshire Fisher Cats – AA
Elvis Luciano – RHP
After missing some time on the injured list, RHP Elvis Luciano has turned into one of the most effective starting pitchers for the Fisher Cats. Through seven starts, the Dominican product is throwing to a 2.42 ERA with 11 walks, 23 strikeouts, and a 1.30 WHIP through 22.1 innings of work.
Kyle Jonhston – RHP
Now pitching in AA as a reliever, Kyle Johnston has performed well in his new role. He started pitching in relief on June 11 and since then, he has allowed only one earned run while racking up 12 strikeouts while going 2+ innings each outing. He has issued seven walks in the same time span, something to clean up, but nevertheless solid numbers for the right-hander.
Fitz Stadler – RHP
While the 6.75 ERA may be deceiving, since June 6, Fitz Stadler has not given up an earned run through 8.2 innings pitched, striking out 14 batters and only issuing five walks.
