NATE PEARSON IS THE FASTEST-GEEING PITCHER THE BLUE JAYS HAVE EVER HAD
Nate Pearson was one of the Blue Jay’s top prospects in recent years because of his elite fastball. Blowing names like Giles and Osuna into the franchise’s record books gives his fastball even more credibility. The Pearson and Romano tandem could potentially be one of the best bullpen combinations in the 2021 MLB Postseason. No team wants play Toronto because of their offense, but their bullpen can be just as dangerous.
The Toronto Blue Jays have a history of hard throwing closers. Ken Giles, Roberto Osuna and Casey Janssen were all great during their time in the Blue Jays bullpen. Now, Nate Pearson, who throws as fast as any MLB pitcher, joins Jordan Romano as a decent duet on the back of the bullpen. If Pearson can solve his control problems, his record-breaking fastball could make him one of Toronto’s best pitchers someday.
