Nate Pearson will make his first Major League start for the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday against the Washington Nationals.
Pearson, Toronto's No. 1 prospect, is rated as baseball's No. 8 prospect, per MLB Pipeline.
"Nate doesn't have to do anything to impress us," pitching coach Pete Walker said in summer camp. "He's really in a great place right now, and he's continuing to refine his stuff. He's got a power arm, as we all know. His secondary stuff is really coming along nicely. He doesn't have to do anything different than what he's doing right now."
