It comes with the territory of being a Yankees prospect, and as far as Deivi Garcia is concerned, he’ll pitch in whatever territory will have him.
Garcia, a 20-year-old Dominican right-hander, has enjoyed a breakout 2019, and it took two steps on Sunday, first when he threw a 1-2-3 first inning for the American League in the Futures Game at Progressive Park and then, upon his completion of that task, when the Yankees announced his promotion from Double-A Trenton to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
And if he experiences another big step by the July 31 trade deadline? He’ll roll with it.“I really don’t think about that that much,” Garcia said, through an interpreter, when asked about the possibility of being dealt by the Yankees for a current major leaguer.
“I just do my work, and if the moment comes that I get traded, it’s my job to do my work there as well.”
