I know they want him to be a starter, but it wouldn't shock me in the least if he became the closer next year.

Struck out the side in the ninth today on 14 pitches. After two close games against the A's, Blue Jays win this one 8-0 to complete the sweep. Both teams are 4 games behind the Red Sox and 4 1/2 behind the Yankees for one of the wild cards.

Starting for the Blue Jays tomorrow.  Not sure whether it's a spot start or he's up for good.  He had a good, but short outing at AAA earlier in the week.

Nate didn't pitch enough to lose his prospect status, nor badly enough to discourage Keith Law.

5. Nate Pearson, RHP, Toronto, Age: 24

Pearson’s debut in the majors was tantalizing, but as with his first
full pro season in 2018, it was interrupted by injury, leaving him still
eligible for these rankings. Pearson averaged 96.3 mph on his
four-seamer, showed a full four-pitch mix, all three of which at least
missed bats, although he leaned most on his slider and the pitch wasn’t
as consistent as it has been in the past. He’s 6 feet 6 inches and 250
pounds, with a good delivery that he has learned to repeat since the
Jays signed him, so in theory he should be durable. Still, he had
several fluky injuries in 2018 that limited him to one inning, and a
flexor strain sent him to the injured list in late August, after which
the Jays used him for just a single relief appearance. If he can stay
healthy, there are very few starting pitching prospects who can match
his stuff and size, which give him the ceiling of a No. 1 starter.

Notes:

Final 2020 Ranking: 5 
Tools: Fastball: 80 | Curveball: 50 | Slider: 70 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 55 
Skinny: Pearson has arguably the best pure stuff of any pitching prospect. Staying healthy and improving his control are his next steps to fulfilling his frontline potential.
